I manage~~not own~~the memorials I place on FindaGrave. Please use the SAC (edit feature) when asking for changes. This prevents mistakes because the edit feature connects me to the right memorial. Please read this ★ ☆ ★ FAQs ★ ☆ ★ before you intentionally make a duplicate of a memorial (which is a no no): I do transfer out of guidelines a lot if I feel you will maintain the memorial you request better than I can ~ which means a beloved aunt, cousin, best friend, etc. (Just don't ask for a whole cemetery or a whole list of the same name especially if you happened to find this site and have been a member for a few days). Stick around for awhile - contribute. Although a great place for genealogy this is a GRAVES REGISTRATION SITE!

Permission has been given to GenealogyTrails.com to use my photos for their excellent site.
YES - you have permission to use the photos I took for your personal family files. I would appreciate it if you cited where you found the photo and if possible link back to FindAGrave.com.
However unless you are a nonprofit organization, this is not to be copied & pasted on a commercial site or used for commercial publication without permission.

I love to have additional information to add to the memorials. In winter I go through what I have put up and link families, find additional dates, etc. Although it looks like I have more than I can handle, I have had no problem adding suggested information. I have 35 years of experience in family history research and will be happy to add links or more biographical information on your family.

If you are requesting a photo - all information is helpful. Many people only have flat to the ground memorials, and they are difficult to find. If you know of other family names that might be close by, that is very helpful in large cemeteries. Also if your memorial served in the military, that is very helpful as most cemeteries commemorate with a flag.

I love the challenge of photographing really old stones. I also love the zincs - which were an inexpensive product for the time but have outlasted some of the more expensive marbles and granites. The zincs were very popular during the Prohibition Era because the insides were hollow and easily accessible.

The people we ~meet~ in these resting places are integral in putting together family history. The memorial may be all that is left.
★ ☆ ★ ☆ ★ ☆ ★ ☆ ★ ☆ ★ ☆ ★ ☆ ★ ☆
Thank you to all the volunteers who have added photos to my memorials, taken the time to send me information, added their own memorials, found a dupe or two, and have been kind and respectful.

It is so important that if you have an old cemetery near you, to get these stones recorded before weather and/or vandals get to them.
★ ☆ ★ ☆ ★ ☆ ★ ☆ ★ ☆ ★ ☆ ★★ ☆
I do try to wipe off debris and pull some overgrown grass out of the way, but I will not harm the stone in any way. Plus I do not pull up flowers, even if they are wilted.
It's a bit of work to take the photos, re size and sometimes enhance the lettering to be made readable, enter names and upload the photos. I do this lovingly. Please respect that.
★ ☆ ★ ☆ ★ ☆ ★ ☆ ★ ☆ ★ ☆ ★
I have a camera that takes good photos,however the condition of the stone may make it unreadable or the stone is so damaged that there is no information. Bright sunny days might be good for walks but can wash out headstone inscriptions. I do retakes a lot.

Thank you very much!
Dear Contributor Greer:
Thanks for transferring to my management the Find A Grave profile of Captain James Eugene Smith (d. 1936), late of the 12th Infantry Regiment of Connecticut Volunteers. I strongly appreciate the very fine digital photos you shot of all the gravestone of my ancestors interred at the Smith Plot, Section 5, Cedar Hill Cemetery, Hartford, CT. Your great assistance and fine genealogical work is truly exceptional.

Best regards,
CWO4 DJ Paul, United States Navy (ret.)

Hi there,

Lucy Andrus was my husband's great great great grandmother and I am trying to find who her ex-husband was (the father of Etta and Harriett). If you have any more information on this, please let us know. Thank you for all the great information you have up here on the Andrus line and if you have Lucy's maiden name. Thank you so much!

Ellsworth F. Brown # 79311057
Thank you for all the information and pictures you have provided. I am researching Ellsworth Brown. His birth parents are Charles and Sarah(Fenn)Austin. Ellsworth's mother died shortly after his birth. He was adopted by the Brown's. I am letting you know this because I submitted a parental link to find-a-grave and didn't want to cause any confusion. Thanks again, James Lawsoon

Herman Castaldine 76392300
Greetings,

My name is Jeff Groleau from Chicopee, MA. My great, great grandfather was Louis J Castaldini, the father of Herman J Castaldine, making Herman my great uncle. I realize that I have only been on Find A Grave for a couple days, however, I am very serious about my family's heritage and genealogy, and am kindly asking that you allow transfer to me, of Herman's page, as I am finding information that is most relevant to him, and would love to continue maintaining it. I am very much here for the long haul, even though I am new here. But I do need to start somewhere, so I am asking if you would be most kind to allow this transfer to me? Thank you for your consideration.

Kind Regards,
Jeff Groleau
Chicopee, MA

Memorial Transfer Request
Hi,
You are managing a memorial for "Willard B Eaton" - I added a photo of him in his Civil War uniform to the memorial. WB was my GGgrandfather and I was wondering if you'd be willing to transfer the memorial to me?
Regards,
Lianne Eaton Cook
