Never argue with stupid people, they will drag you down to their level and then beat you with experience.

Mark Twain
If you have a issue with a contributors memorial kindly let them know before going to F.A.G. administrators its just mean spirited to report something then attack them publicly before giving them a chance to correct your complaint.

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 my dear friends Memorial.

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.

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 MEANT FOR CORRECTIONS,SO I will not make corrections this way anymore as it is just to difficult.

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 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 Yo, 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.

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.

RE: Lucy Y Anthony #61974150
I corrected her birthplace according to where the family was living at the time of her birth. The family bible lists her birthday as April 12, 1862.

RE: Lucy Y Anthony #61974150
Thank you, I will make sure I give you credit. I don't have that Edward Anthony in my line as of yet. I, too have looked for a death record on Edward Pendleton, but he died in 1874 and MO death records are hard to find then. I have a copy of his family bible that gives me his death date. Mary went to Arkansas for a while after he died. I have also looked at Balltown Cemetery with no luck.

I saw that you had these two memorials transferred to you. How are you connected? I would love to connect with more family. Mary Evelyn (should be Emily) was my great grand aunt and Alice my first cousin twice removed.

Hi, Jarrott,

You made a note on my Cora Smith, wife of Elmer Smith, that you may have her obituary. That was in 2010. Do you think you might still have that obituary? Yes, she was the wife of Elmer Smith, and she was the daughter of, John Sehorn Allen and Arthusa Jennings.

I'd love to have a copy of her obituary! Miss Cora is my 2nd Cousin 4X removed.

Joseph and bird Allen
You sent me an update saying Joseph is the father of Bird. BUT Joseph died in 1879 Bird was not born until 1887. I don't think Joseph can father a child once he has died.

Also, I will insist on paying any fees charged and will forward quickly. Thanks. Charles
