Today, let me do all the good I can, for I may not pass this way again."
We don't "own" the memorials we manage - they are not ours. We may create them, we may update them, we may transfer them to others - we are but stewards. They are Find A Grave memorials of human beings, departed. They are not to be collected like "friends" on a social media website, or like baseball trading cards. And there is no prize for the one who dies with the most.
"Guidelines" are "guidance", NOT laws, and we are not "memorial Barons". The true "spirit" of Find A Grave is one of discovery, preservation, and cooperation. The reputation you create as custodian reflects only upon you.
The reward (for me) comes from maintaining the most accurate and dignified memorials I can. What we record becomes history, and a record in someone else's family tree. We have a responsibility to do a good job of it. It's a privilege and honor.
Please feel free to use any of my photos on Find A Grave or genealogy websites.
A good many of the memorials that I maintain are not my own family members, so don't be afraid to request a transfer. You might get lucky :)
