Bio and Links
Bio Photo *It's sad to see people not following fag rules anymore and people being so impolite when contacting others.

I try to be understanding in my requests to other people in sacs or about correcting mistakes (mine or others), but lately it just seems that other peoples etiquette has gone right out the window.

I don't delete my posts on my page because I have no problem with people seeing a conversation. I can't help other people hide the nastiness they have by deleting my initial questions to them on their pages.

And No there's no obligation for me to add my personal email onto my profile page, because you can contact me through fag just fine either sac or on my page.

Be polite and courteous to others

Since 2009 I have been working on preserving the Greenwood Cemetery. I started out taking care of a few family members there and then found more and more. I am related somehow to almost 1/2 of the cemetery.

I have been going through the cemetery stone by stone trying to physically place all the graves. I'm also trying to add names to the stones that are unreadable, which is very very hard! Sometimes I find a stone which just says mother or father even

I have been going through obituaries, church records, cemetery books, county birth records, funeral home records, and death records just trying to make sure every one is found and taken care of.

If you are within the FAG guidelines I will GLADLY transfer too.

The Greenwood cemetery is done. There maybe the occasional found ancestor in the obits or death certs, but all the photos (Except for recent burials like 2013 to 1015) have been taken of every stone I could find.

FAG Rules Regarding Submitting Information / Creating Memorials

Can I add an obituary to my interment listing?

Please do NOT add photographs from obituary notices (unless you, personally took the photo), as they are protected by copyright law. Find A Grave reserves the right to remove obituary notices and photographs from memorial records. Similarly, you may NOT scan an obituary and add it as a photograph to a memorial record.

FAG Rules regarding duplicates:

** If you find a memorial has been added but has incomplete or incorrect information, instead of creating a duplicate memorial you should use the tools provided to submit corrections, additions or a transfer request via the "Suggest A Correction" link under the 'Edit' tab on the upper right of the memorial. YOU SHOULD NEVER DELIBERATELY CREATE A DUPLICATE MEMORIAL.

FAG guidelines regarding photos:

** Not obtaining permission before using others photos is a violation of copyright law and is against Find A Grave policy.

I found a photo of a relative on Find A Grave, can I use it?

Photos posted to memorials on Find A Grave are copyrighted by the member who submitted the photos. Lifting the photo to use elsewhere would be a violation of copyright. You must obtain written permission from the member to use any photo for your own use. In general if you did not take the photo yourself, you do not hold the copyright to the photo.


"I don't want to submit my information and then see it for sale here or on another site. Will Find A Grave always remain a free site?

Find A Grave has been around for over ten years. Our stated goal has always been to remain a free site for everyone. We have no plans on changing that. Additionally, we claim no copyright or 'ownership' of any photos that are posted to Find A Grave. THEY REMAIN YOUR PROPERTY. If we were to turn evil and start charging people to view YOUR photos against your wishes, you would have every LEGAL RIGHT to demand that we remove them. But we're not planning on turning evil, so it shouldn't be an issue."

Do NOT steal photos from findagrave to use in your family trees on or for that matter either.

Do not copy, or post to any website, any of the pictures that I've added to Find-a-Grave Memorials.

Thank you.

RE: Grace E. Weyandt Burns
Hello, my computer is freezing when I try to access the image. I will try again later, but I wanted to tell you that whenever you see that I have posted an obituary image, that means I have already transcribed the text myself and would be glad to send the text to you to save you the time and trouble of re-transcribing it yourself. I like the original images because they are one step closer to the original document and minimize the mistrust caused by someone transcribing it and posting just the typed text. Anybody could end up with an unintended typo in such an instance. 40 or 50 years from now when we are all gone, a researcher will see a typed piece of text and not consider it a primary source reference. Just let me know. Thanks! -- MSC

Boriskey, Burnham & Butler
I deleted Anna & Katie Boriskey, Climena, Gertie & Joseph Burnham & Emma & Ozias Butler.
I got the info from the WPA listing for Maple Hill Cemetery in Lincoln Township, north of Gladbrook. Unfortunately, some of the memorials are actually for Maple Hill Cemetery at Montour.
Thanks for the heads up.

Grau Tama Iowa
Hi there! I Really appreciate all the work you have done. Question, do you know how Margaret Ellen Grau died abt 1885 maried to William Long born Dec 1860 died 1919 would fit into your Grau's? I do not know who Margaret Ellen's parents are. I've been going through all Grau's found in Tama Co, IA and stumbled on to your info. I would also like permission to use your photos of John Michael Grau and Mary Ellen Burnside in my tree. I do not post trees publicly. I would just share them with immediate family. Thank you, Jeana Houghton

RE: Patrick McDermitt
I will promise, I'm trying to figure out though if it's the same Patrick because the children don't fit. I'm wondering why. I will add it and figure this mystery out.
