Thank you in advance for your understanding.

I will not be on the site daily--serious illness in my family. This is but a hobby--my family comes first.

I am also having internet connection problems (intermittently), so corrections will get done as soon as I am able, but within the allowed time limits.
Been "graving" since I was a child...and researching my genealogy for over 40 years.
I have been dealing with chronic health issues for many years, and I am always playing "catch up." I try and do the best I can. If I post a photo to one of your memorials, and you are not satisfied, feel free to submit a photo request and wait for another graver to fill it.
I DO NOT link to "Burial Unknowns." This is a "final disposition information" site, not a genealogy site, and I will not link to any burial listed as Unknown.

Per administrator Mark (9/21/2012):

"Admins won't knowingly link any memorial to a memorial of unknown disposition. We should not expect you to link them either."
I do not give permission for my photos uploaded to this website to be posted on any other website (and that includes and is not limited to Photos posted to memorials on Find A Grave are copyrighted by the member who submitted the photos. Lifting the photo to use elsewhere (on other sites) would be a violation of copyright, and a violation of Find A Grave's policy as well. Ancestry (of which I am not a member but do check from time to time) provides a link feature for you to add a link to Find A Grave memorials. Please read the Ancestry Terms of Use regarding copyrighted photos. Stealing them from here and uploading them there can result in the loss of your account there, with your money non-refundable.

REMEMBER: Just because a picture is on the Internet doesn't mean you are entitled to it!

Also, when requesting transfers, submitting corrections, etc., please use the EDIT tab in the upper right hand corner of the memorial. That way, I get all the links and can do them easily. If requesting a transfer, PLEASE state the relationship to the person you are requesting. I am related to many of the people for whom I created memorials, and I need to know this. I do out-of-guideline transfers on a case-by-case basis. Also, do not post correction or transfer requests on my page here--I probably won't see them, as I get many messages a day--and the EDIT tab is the correct procedure to use. Thanks in advance.
Please visit the memorial for my brother-in-law, who passed away suddenly on January 21, 2011 at the age of 54:

Bill Rampp

Thank you for your kindness.

I extend a very sincere thank you and apology for the 4 month lateness in acknowledging the lovely token you left for my loved eldest brother.

He is now with our parents and in God's keeping.

Thank you for transferring this memorial to me. I really appreciate it. I have come across your memorials when adding my family members. If you don't mind, I'd like to request a transfer of those people. I will try to do that from now on. If you have a problem with that, please just let me know. I am trying to enter on Find A Grave the memorials I know of and link them to family members. I have been doing genealogy for YEARS, but am rather a "new" member to Find A Grave. So a lot of people have entered a few of the memorials I am interested in before me. I hope to go back and enter all the obits I have on everyone. That is really the time-consuming part, as I have to type them all up!!! Many thanks again, and keep up all your good work!!!

Thank you
How generous of you to spend so much time & effort photographing & recording memorials. Please pay no mind to negative & rude people. Rules are set for a reason, to avoid chaos & I applaud you for your efforts & it is greatly appreciated.

Thank you so much!
Dear Lady,

Thank you so much for taking the pictures at Woodmere of the Frahms. I also appreciate your time and dedication to helping photograph the graves of family members far and wide. Please do not be discouraged by negative feedback; know that the work you do is appreciated and the rules you follow are legal, sound, and fair. Thank you again for all that you do!

RE: Frances Augustine's maiden name.
I have been a member here for MANY years also and you are the FIRST person to quote the rule book. Who really cares if a person is a third great grandparent and not a second great grandparent so dear Lord we better not pass that one to a relative because they guidelines say only second great grandparent not third. HOLY COW! If they aren't related to you then why do you care?? I cannot figure out if you are playing "high and mighty" with the memorials you have created or what your plan is! Just because they are my husband's relatives does not mean they are not my family. If you have an issue with sharing people's memorials with them just because "you" have created the page then maybe this isn't the place for you. I don't care how many years you have belonged to this site you are arrogant and controlling.

ALSO, If you want to control how people use your photos of their loved ones graves than maybe you shouldn't take photos and add them to the memorial and allow someone else to take photos that can be shared in people's trees. YES it is your right and prerogative, but why in God's name would you want to create a memorial for people to see their loved one's final resting place and then keep them from storing a picture of the headstone in their file?? Only one reason, CONTROL. No one else here has the guts to tell you but I am going to tell you that I don't care how many years you have been a member here and the work you have done, it isn't all about YOU! And I wouldn't have left this message public but you have no other way to contact you so here it is, for all to read and see what an arrogant controlling person you are. I will not be contacting you again and I suggest that you think about why WE ARE ALL HERE, to help each other see our loved ones final resting sites, not to COLLECT memorials. Have a great day!

Hello: I haven't heard from you in a while. It's always nice to see new pictures posted in Woodmere. I changed Harry's birth year, as requested. I also found his parents and linked them to him. Keep up the good work...
