***MARCH 2016 UPDATE:
Please stop sending corrections of my immediate family when you're not related to us. It's extremely frustrating that you feel the need to control something that is not your business. You know who you are.. It's also borderline stalking quite honestly *****
Since it seems FindAGrave profiles are more of a soapbox platform than anything else these days, here's my speech:
Do NOT use any of my photos here that are considered to be "modern" era - I have personal family photos on a few family member's memorials and these are my photos, not to be posted anywhere else by others. (copyright DOES apply here and FindAGrave supports that)
For all older photos, please link to the site source at the very least. That way people are able to locate the origin of the photograph. . And in some cases, family may be able to get their photo returned to them if I have it (flea market finds, etc)
Thank you for understanding.
A major issue I am running into is when people take MY family photos from a memorial and upload them to their Ancestry.com tree without ANY source whatsoever -
(or even asking me first.. if we're family, you'd think you'd want to get in touch, right? So who are you??)
- and then completely mess up the entire thing and add the most horridly wrong information you can even imagine.
I DO have my own family info here detailed and correct - have some respect if you are planning to use it.
Especially since I have it written out for you in proper order, there is no excuse for some of the things I have seen.
Have respect for others as well as yourself. The integrity of your work should mean something to you.
As for info on memorials outside of my family, it was either found through my own research or user submitted. If you have questions, please feel free to ask.
It's sad this even has to be said:
Repeated harassment for transfer of a memorial because it is something you are trying to hoard is not permitted on this site.
The reason I say that is because I have actually had people fighting over a memorial they ''thought'' was ''maybe'' their family.
When I have 5 people who are in a major uproar over a memorial they ''think'' is their great-great-great-great grandpa/grandma/aunt/uncle, nobody is getting the transfer.
Trust me, I've been put in the middle of some weird family arguements on here.
But having said that, please do not be afraid to request a transfer.
If it's my family, I will probably let you know.
If it's a memorial in the middle of a tug of war as mentioned above, I'll probably ignore it.
