I will transfer any memorials as long as they are not my own family.
Most of the photos I've taken are not my own family so I don't have any other info on them.

|Bonnie Kies||Phil K Craig|
Hi Jen. My name is Bonnie, and I'm doing a family tree,(like you prob. didn't already guess that LOL) and I'm having trouble locating and making sure that the people are the correct ones. I need to know if this Phil K Craig was the son of one Frederick W. Craig and Abigail Diantha Corliss?
He was born in Iowa on June 1885. Not sure if he married or not. Or had kids. He had 3 brothers,
Clyde or Clide F., Earl H., Clifford H., and 1 sister, Mildred B., sorry I dont know the middle names wish I did, it might clear up some confusion.
Here is all I know of Findagrave:

|Dave P||Cluckymom's illegal copyright|
I saw your note to Clunkymom and was surprised how she is actually trying to pursue copyright on her photos of other families headstones. Having knowledge of copyright laws, a headstone belongs to the family and although in a public spot, cannot be photographed and used without the express written consent of the owner of the property..the family. She is in violation of copyright laws herself as headstones can be classified as art and the photographer of the headstone cannot copyright the photo without consent. This would be similar to taking a picture of the Spirit of St. Louis or the Mona Lisa and claiming copyright to the photo. She can place all the notice she wants on her FindAGrave website, but without legal copyright, she cannot refuse others to copy those photos. Since the photos are not capable of copyright, they are Public Domain and can be used by anyone. She has Ancestry buffaloed because she writes to a Customer Service who sends out a copyright notice without looking into it. She claims to know the laws, but appears to only cite one aspect of the law. She has no standing to the headstones in the first place so knowing or not knowing the law is a moot point

I would just like to commend you for you statement on pictures being allowed to be used. I find it so interesting that people take pictures of gravestones that often the deceased is not even a family member and they want to copy right everything even though it was out there for the public to see. Most wanting only to research their family. You are gift and I thank you so much.

I have no other person there. If you need help with the Hebrew stone in order to post it, let me know. I'm always so pleased when we rescue these historic treasures from oblivion.

I thought you would like some feedback from someone who benefited from your kind work on the site. You added a picture of a gravestone for Eugene Sax, a 3 month old baby. I suspect you never thought anyone would know or care about that information. But Eugene was the son of my second cousin once removed. The whole branch of the family to which Eugene belongs has nearly disappeared from the memory, but I have ressurected their memory through 20 years of research. I know about Eugene only from a small item in a 1917 Mason City, Iowa newspaper, which reads in part: The home of Mr and Mrs A R Sax has been saddened by the death of their two months old baby boy, Eugene, who passed away at 4:00 o'clock this morning, death being due to acute indigestion. He was taken sick but two days ago and had gradually weakened until death came in the early morning hour.
I very much appreciate your effort in making this picture available for my genealogical research.

|PALLAS HOUSER||Find A Grave Photo Use|
Hi Jennifer, I am writing a series of books on my family and some of my family do not have computers and are unable to get out and this is for family entertainment and not for sale or profit and I will have a book but nothing but giving credit to everyone that has helped me through this wonderful adventure and I was wondering if you would be as kind as to allow me to use some of the pictures that you have taken of the headstones for some of my family? One family that comes to mind is the Keasey family in Glendale. Those are so good and that family has a story alone with my family I know that I would love to use them. I certainly would appreciate that from the bottom of my heart.
|Mini||Photo of Anna Siegel Headstone|
Thank you so very much for photographing the headstone for Anna Siegel's burial place. As I told you I was trying to discover if this Anna Siegel was the grave of my GG-Grandmother - from the dates on the grave 1872-1888 I can see that is an impossibility. Now I simply am grateful for the information yet feeling sad for a young woman who died before growing to adulthood.
Thank you again for your great effort in this task!
