For those who check their "edits" often, thank you!
My memorials are works in progress and as I find additional research I update them. Numbers is not my thing on this website - just enjoying what I am doing!! I began family history in 1962 and it has been an enjoyable hobby. "Everyone deserves to be remembered." A heritage should never be forgotten. The resting place of all persons should be marked with a tombstone to honor their memory.
The only time I add an "overview" photo to someone else memorial is to show location which is a great help in finding a marker in a large area and/or to add data on the photo caption. Please note that photos are not always good due to the time of day of photo and some are old markers in poor condition which need cleaning, etc., but they are worth a view to someone searching for an ancestor. Some are poor quality photos posted, but it would take a long time to redo them all. Memorials are so much nicer with pictures and and a good addition for researchers doing their family tree. FAG staff says anyone can add a photo to any memorial. Most of my photos have been added to memorials that other FAG contributors posted and if no tombstone photo was added in a year or more, then I add a photo. If anyone wishes for me to delete a photo on their memorial, please contact me.
Photo requests: it costs nothing to be polite...thank a volunteer for trying to find grave markers for you!
