|Bio and Links|
I am a quilter! I piece together fabric in the traditional way but also the people of past generations. Just as in making a conventional quilt, all must be pieced together with extreme accuracy, or the outcome will be disastrous. There are no shortcuts that can be taken. The beauty of the quilt can only be truly appreciated by the maker who has personally put their heart and soul into the construction and has had to take out the stitches of the piece that just will not fit.|
DO NOT ADD TO MY MEMORIALS:
NEWSPAPER OBITUARY IMAGES
All of them that others have posted to mine, or other memorials, are all copyright material. Downloading and reposting any image from another website is copyright infringement. Also, be aware that in some states it is illegal to electronically post any vital records. It is punishable with jail time and a hefty fine.
I know that Find A Grave states that you can post a death certificate. I believe that they mean a scan of a death certificate that you've purchased, not one lifted from another website. They are probably not aware of the restrictions of some states.
Do not ask me to post obituaries on my memorials unless they are out of copyright. Find A Grave rules state 1922 or earlier and in public domain. The thousands that have been posted on this site are all in violation of copyright. Spend your time writing a personal story about the individual.
DO NOT TRY TO TURN THIS SITE INTO A FAMILY TREE SITE! This was not the original intent.
It is so sad to see that so many long time contributors are becoming inactive. I totally understand how all of this constant edit stuff is driving them nuts.
I appreciate edits if I have made a typing error but constant requests to add obituaries, link this person to that person, or suggestions to add erroneous information (copied from some online tree) is truly overwhelming. I am on dialup service and it takes me hours just to sort through all of this nonsense. I know when and where all of my family members were born and died because I have spent the money to order the records from the various register of deeds offices.
I can't even view some of my memorials because of people adding such huge photos of headstones. If the page does eventually load all that shows for the photo is an X. I know that the policy changed to an 8 MB photo but that is not needed to view a headstone and the image is not improved.
When on the photo tab the image is still not visible and won't load. If I click on the image space it takes over twenty minutes (on dialup) to view an image, to verify a possible typo sent to me through the edit tab. Ridiculous!! This site should not consume every minute of my life. I'm not getting paid for this! If all visitors are not able to view a headstone then it serves no purpose. I'm not the only person still on dialup.
Photos are, and remain, the property of the contributor. No downloading and posting to other web sites! All of the photos submitted by me to Find A Grave, memorials and cemeteries, are copyrighted by me. Unauthorized use, reproduction, or distribution is strictly prohibited. Written permission must be obtained for any use!
Upon my passing, the full size images and my copyright will be donated to the various genealogical and historical societies that I am a member of. These organizations will need to know to whom I have given permission to for personal use.
I am willing to transfer ownership of my memorials to family members using Find A Grave's standards. I will not transfer if they are my family or allied family members.

Sorry about the empty message before; my hand hit enter before I was ready.
Anyways, I was wondering if you would be willing to transfer Omar Clark Jr. to me. He is my paternal grandfather.

I've been researching my great great grandfather and I believe this is him. He is buried in Woodland Cemetary and his birthdate is not shown on the headstone. The headstone wasn't put in place until the mid to late 1940's and he passed away on Feb 14, 1927. He was a veteran and was a Corporal in Co. D 40th Regiment of Kentucky.
I was just curious about the information you have listed on Andrew J Jones and who provided it to you? Do you have a photo of the headstone by chance?
Any information you can provide would be greatly appreciated.

Fawn, are you related to Hermann C Abel? Im attempting to track down Carl and Henriette Abel, who had a son named Hermann. They immigrated to USA in 1868.
