Bio Photo 10-19-2014

Really really sick of people stealing my family photos and posting them as there own on Ancestry .
I plan to take any action that is available under the law to stop it .

If you need to contact me privately please use me dear friends Memorial Find A Grave Memorial# 71410062

Please understand Find A Grave memorials are works in progress . And there is no excuse for being rude and abusive .

My photographic works and photos I have posted are protected by in bedded copyright. You Must ask permission before reproducing in any form .

Quote From Jim Tipton founder of F.A.G. on updated rules after being acquired by Ancestry . com found in help with find a grave .

"It will still be wrong for someone to 'steal' a photo from Find A Grave and post it on other websites as if it were their own".

If your reporting a duplicate please add the duplicates F.A.G. number .

Please remember that F.A.G. has threads running that will eventfully merge dups. into the first created . Don't go postal over a dup.
Please do not move a burial unknown memorial into a cemetery where I already placed a memorial and tell me I have to remove my "duplicate" memorial ,this is profusely widespread now.

Please do not ask me to post a obituary that does not have a source ,it is not allowed ,and could lead to a breach of public domain .

If requesting a transfer first read that section in help with find a grave and in My bio. Other wise it will not be considered . Do not leave request on this page ,must be done the proper way to be considered .

Please do not request transfers in less You fully intend to add links and or further improve the information . If you are just collecting memorials use your virtual cemetery function . No request will be considered with out relationship being stated . I have ancestry and will check so be truthful .

Transfers should be requested by using the edit feature on memorial and leaving as a suggestion or (sac) please do not leave request on My public messaging they will not be considered . Your relationship must be stated also. No exceptions .

Despite what many claim .
Find a grave is first and foremost a grave registration site ,as stated by its founder .

omg best thing that has ever happened to F.A.G. the new edit function and some contributors are bad mouthing it . You got think ungrateful .

I happily add links and other appropriate information if sent by the edit function on memorial.

Corrections /request should not be left as public message as there are plenty of other means now to do them . Public message's WERE NEVER MENT FOR CORRECTIONS ,SO I will not make corrections this way anymore as it is just to difficult .

When I first started contributing TO F.A.G. you could just inter a memorial ,and that's about it , this gave us time to learn the ropes as features were added, we had time to learn them ,now it seems new ones just jump in there with out reading the guide lines and how to do things right , this rapidly makes them look foolish , and causes problems galore. Please new ones read help with F.A.G. before you use this site and add to it .

Find a Grave seems to bring out the worst or the best in folks there seems to be no middle ground . For that reason it seems we all need to make a special effort to show as much respect for the living as we do for the one's who have passed on .

If it is your intent to be anything but cordial and respectful, I strongly recommend you read further in this bio. before doing so .

I hope F.A.G.soon works on punishing those who are stealing our work and photos as promised ,we work hard ,it is not fair that others get credit for our efforts. I have seen hundred if not thousands of my photos on ancestry .com and I am thinking of taking legal action .

I never profit from My photos even though I spend a great deal of time and money taking photos . And I really do not wont any person or web site to profit from them. And I do not wont My ancestors photos stolen and posted by others as though they belong to them . If I see My photo's on another Web site and My list shows no permission was obtained. I will ask them to be removed and if they are not ,I will contact the web site to have them removed .

New editing function has rolled out to all members.

I'm getting a lot of good feed back on My stance of not putting up with harassment, a lot of contributors are also fed up .Some are saying they are thinking of giving up , I think things will get better now that Ancestry. COM has acquired this site .

In till the last couple of Years ago the following statement was not necessary but unfortunately it is now.

To a select but growing few } Please be aware as a contributor on find a grave does not mean You have given up free will, no contributor is obligated to do anything . If You are making a suggestion do not turn it into a demand or try to manipulate or bully a contributor into making Your suggestion . I can't speak for others but as for Me any attempt at demanding or manipulation automatically rejects Your suggestion and further Hate mail internet bullying ,stalking , intimidation are crimes and will be reported and prosecuted if necessary . Further more after becoming aware of theses crimes the web site is obligated to take action against perpetrators of these crimes or it is also at risk of prosecution .

A person goes out and spends money on a camera flash cards ,batteries . Gasoline ,wear an tear on there vehicle not mention time, fights off snakes , mosquitoes ,ticks ,high grass and weeds , walks in the heat and cold ,mud and people cant even send them a thank You ! ,something is seriously wrong with that ,but that's what happening ,out of my last 50 or so photo request I fulfilled I got about 3 thank You notes ,and about 8 or 10 for the last 50 transfers ,and the fact that F.A.G. sends out a reminder email to suggest You say thank You , makes it even hurt more . Come on folks that is all we ask in return for transfers and photo request . I think this says a lot about what is wrong with society to day .

We all live in the shade of trees planted by those who came before us .

I am a taphophile and Genealogy Hound .

I am a taphophile because I like photographing gravestones.

I have been into cemetery Photography & Rubbings Collecting obituaries for 40 years .My experience in and love of investigation work has helped Me a great deal in My genealogical pursuits .

Genealogy begins as an interest, becomes a hobby, continues as an avocation and in the last stages, is an incurable disease.

Rude or demanding behavior will result in Your request being rejected Automatically . Expect 30 days for Your request to be considered .

Any disrespectful activities or communications will not be tolerated and will be addressed as the situation dictates .

grave marker of Thelma Kinney
Hello, Jarrott,
Thank you for posting the photo of gravestone of my uncle's wife- - THELMA LEE KINNEY (1934 -2007). (She was married first to my uncle Jerry M. MARTIN, who died in 1990.)
If you are familiar with this family, perhaps you would know if an obituary was published for her? I've been searching to no avail.
Would appreciate any info you might have.
Thank you,

James Best at Fairview Cemetery
You have no birth date on James Best was wondering where the info came from. I think he may be mine. Mine was born in 1839 and died between 1900 and 1910 in Bates co. Married to Mary Thompson Bryant.
Thanks for you effort on Find a grave. .

I'm sorry you have been treated unkindly.
No harm has been meant.

Please let me know if I have caused you to feel that your photos have been used inappropriately. My husband's family is in this Benjamin Cemetery and I have by no means meant to offend you in any way. Please let me know if there is a correction you want me to be aware of to change. I see your credit below photos and you have left flowers.
We have walked this cemetery many times and taken pics as well.
