|Bio and Links|
My interest of documenting cemeteries began with a request to help on an Eagle Scout project in 2001. |
Since I love creating and working with databases, digital photography and genealogy, what better combination!
I've documented many Howard Co. Indiana and Montclam Co. Michigan cemeteries with thousands of tombstone photos. My largest contributions are Arlington National Cemetery and Crown Hill Cemetery, Indianapolis.
I love Find A Grave and I especially enjoy adding photos to memorials so that family members can visit their family member's grave at anytime. However, I ask that you respect my efforts. Please, do NOT copy my photos to ancestry.com without giving me credit. Simply indicate "© 2001-2013 John C Anderson on Find A Grave". I'd appreciate a note letting me know you have copied them. However, do NOT post them to other Find A Grave memorials. Just let me know and I will upload them. Use for commercial purposes is not allowed under any circumstances. However, it is okay with me for you to post my photos of your friends and families headstones on Facebook as long as you link it back to the Find A Grave memorial. You may use my photos on your own personal website if non-commercial, but photo credit is again appreciated.
This love of documenting cemeteries has led to the formation of Instone Data Solutions, a company used by government agencies and others to digitize their old cemetery paper records.
I'm more than happy to make corrections and add relationship links to other memorials.
ALL REQUESTS FOR corrections, additional information, or transfers: PLEASE do so with the Suggest A Correction (SAC) link on the memorial for that person. [Most memorials will have an 'Edit' tab on the upper right side of the memorial. Click on the 'Edit' tab, then click on the 'Suggest a correction' link on the Edit page.]
PLEASE NOTE: I'm very grateful for corrections and additional information, but I'm receiving 75-100 a day and cannot reply to everyone. Please check back to ensure accuracy of memorial page updates.
Please be assured I do most updates, corrections and links (via SAC, email or message) within a day. Guidelines do suggest a member send no more than 20 per week to a single contributor but have no problem with receiving as many as needed to get the objective accomplished - which is getting memorials, and the cemeteries, as accurate and complete as humanly possible.

|David McInturff||RE: Duplicate memorials at Arlington National Cemetery|
Thank you, John. I'll go through my list and remove the remaining memorials of the pairs, but that will have to wait until tomorrow.
|David McInturff||Duplicate memorials at Arlington National Cemetery|
Thank you for your many contributions to Findagrave, and in particular, to Arlington National Cemetery. That being said, I have to tell you that I've been going through the memorials listed in ANC looking for duplicate memorials. When I find any, I add both the original and duplicate to a virtual cemetery (Duplicate memorials - ANC), visible on my member page. Currently, I'm looking at memorials with last names beginning with "H". I have found hundreds of your memorials with the first letter of the first name missing. Apparently, that happened when you didn't properly parse a database into Excel for upload to Findagrave. As a result, when other members were creating memorials, they didn't find your misspelled memorials, and created new, properly spelled, memorials. And there were a few of your memorials with miscellaneous spelling errors that have also had properly spelled memorials created. Would you please go through my list and delete your incorrectly spelled memorials. Thank you. Please be aware there are other "dupe pairs" that have nothing to do with you, and I'll have to work with those memorial creators to eliminate the dupes.
Another thought along this same line: There are some (perhaps many) of your "H" memorials at ANC that haven't yet been duplicated. When I find these, I've been informing a member with cemetery admin rights to fix the spelling of the first name. Is there some way that you can go back though your records or submitted spreadsheets, and find the records with the missing first letter of the first name and fix them yourself?
Oh, just this morning, I found one of your memorials starting with the letter "G" that was also missing first letter of the first name. (I haven't looked a "G" in depth, so I don't know the magnitude of that problem.)
(I'm writing to you this way, because otherwise there would be hundreds of SACs and email messages.)

John, thanks so much again for transferring my relatives. I greatly appreciate it. And, again, thanks for all your hard work of entering these graves in for us all to locate.
