I manage~~not own~~the memorials I place on FindaGrave. Please use the SAC (edit feature) when asking for changes. This prevents mistakes because the edit feature connects me to the right memorial. Please read this ★ ☆ ★ FAQs ★ ☆ ★ before you intentionally make a duplicate of a memorial (which is a no no): I do transfer out of guidelines a lot if I feel you will maintain the memorial you request better than I can ~ which means a beloved aunt, cousin, best friend, etc. (Just don't ask for a whole cemetery or a whole list of the same name especially if you happened to find this site and have been a member for a few days). Stick around for awhile - contribute. Although a great place for genealogy this is a GRAVES REGISTRATION SITE!

Permission has been given to GenealogyTrails.com to use my photos for their excellent site.
YES - you have permission to use the photos I took for your personal family files. I would appreciate it if you cited where you found the photo and if possible link back to FindAGrave.com.
However unless you are a nonprofit organization, this is not to be copied & pasted on a commercial site or used for commercial publication without permission.

I love to have additional information to add to the memorials. In winter I go through what I have put up and link families, find additional dates, etc. Although it looks like I have more than I can handle, I have had no problem adding suggested information. I have 35 years of experience in family history research and will be happy to add links or more biographical information on your family.

If you are requesting a photo - all information is helpful. Many people only have flat to the ground memorials, and they are difficult to find. If you know of other family names that might be close by, that is very helpful in large cemeteries. Also if your memorial served in the military, that is very helpful as most cemeteries commemorate with a flag.

I love the challenge of photographing really old stones. I also love the zincs - which were an inexpensive product for the time but have outlasted some of the more expensive marbles and granites. The zincs were very popular during the Prohibition Era because the insides were hollow and easily accessible.

The people we ~meet~ in these resting places are integral in putting together family history. The memorial may be all that is left.

Thank you to all the volunteers who have added photos to my memorials, taken the time to send me information, added their own memorials, found a dupe or two, and have been kind and respectful.

It is so important that if you have an old cemetery near you, to get these stones recorded before weather and/or vandals get to them.
★ ☆ ★ ☆ ★ ☆ ★ ☆ ★ ☆ ★ ☆ ★★ ☆
I do try to wipe off debris and pull some overgrown grass out of the way, but I will not harm the stone in any way. Plus I do not pull up flowers, even if they are wilted.
It's a bit of work to take the photos, re size and sometimes enhance the lettering to be made readable, enter names and upload the photos. I do this lovingly. Please respect that.
★ ☆ ★ ☆ ★ ☆ ★ ☆ ★ ☆ ★ ☆ ★
I have a camera that takes good photos,however the condition of the stone may make it unreadable or the stone is so damaged that there is no information. Bright sunny days might be good for walks but can wash out headstone inscriptions. I do retakes a lot.

I just sent a note to Helen and this is her reply below. I thought you might find it interesting. BTW, I took a look at your virtual cemetery of unusual sculptures. Wow, Hartford has some wonderful art in their cemeteries!
"Here is good representation 45749737

They were made in southern Illinois around 1900, when WWI came along the metal was needed for war effort, so that ended them. There are none in Warren County, Ky due to they were sold direct sale and the salesmen rode the river boats. So the ferry owners frequently bought the bigger ones, the Lindley family had the ferry at Point Pleasant. The Ston/Stum family had the ferry at Hopewell. So they are represented in several Ohio County cemeteries, Milton Taylor, West Providence, Goshen, Walton's Creek, Beaver Dam Baptist, Lindley, Hopewell, etc."

Your bio
C Greer,
I enjoyed reading your bio. How is your timing on edits/corrections. I sent you one, but only a few days ago. When you get to it, I appreciate it, but no hurry. I am interested in the zinc memorials you described. I think I saw one in Ohio Co, Ky this summer. I think I took a photo. I am trying to recall what Helen McKeown, a local historian there in KY told us about these zinc mems. Seems like she said something about them being sold/marketed along the route of the riverboats. I am off to send her a note, to refresh my memory. All the best to you.

More irony. My wife Margaret Grenon Holland's uncle Edmund P. Fournier was married to Margaret Claire Gaudreau daughter of Aurore Vegiard Gaudreau daughter of Rose Anna Guillet Vegiard.
