|Bio and Links|
As a VOLUNTEER CONTRIBUTOR of my time, |
energies, and talents at this website, my mission for this project has been to:
FIND graves (and cemeteries)
ENTER photos at FAG
Therefore, ALL my PHOTO entries are (in virtual reality) 'volunteer' photos! Please respect FAG guidelines, and copyright LAW by NOT copying/enhancing and then RE-POSTING any of my photos! Thanx -
UPDATE: October 2013
When I began my efforts at FAG, my mission was to photograph cemetery markers and enter those photos at this website ... when I began this volunteer project? it was truly one of ONLY 'finding graves'.
In 2003, many cemeteries were not yet mapped by GPS - memorial pages did not have 'fields' for entries such as maiden or nicknames - family member links, and the SAC button for error corrections, did not yet exist.
Within my tenure of the past ten years, FAG has evolved into what many are attempting to create -
A 'no fee' GENEALOGY WEBSITE
where volunteer contributors are now 'expected' to contribute? additional hours (hundreds in my case), updating pages with 'new' information input - 'borrowed' from other 'fee paid' genealogy sites!
I appreciate your zeal in helping to foster this 'new' vision for FAG admins, but I must ask you to not include me in any future TOTAL cemetery, or extended family updates! These revisions and additions arrive without source information, and require more time and energy investment than I am willing, or able, to continue to 'freely' donate.
If/when CORRECTIONS are needed? to pages I have created, please DO notify me, via SAC. Thank you for your understanding - and blessings to you, for your generous, ORIGINAL contributions to this website project!
