Hi, I prefer people not put them on ancestry, as then other people copy them. However there is a way to link from Ancestry to find-a-grave.
directions for ancestry link from jackie
Text links (does not show the photo) can be done in one of two ways to my knowledge.
First is the "Web Links" which is on an individual's main profile, in the right column (under "Family Members", the last box at the bottom).
1. Click the "Add a web link" button.
2. Paste the memorial URL into the "Web address" box. Such as http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GRid=## where ## is the memorial number.
3. Type what you want to call it (such as "Find A Grave memorial") in the "Name" box.
4. Click the "Save" button.
Second is a link within a citation. The first step is to set up a new source, such as "Find A Grave memorial".
1. In the individual's Overview screen, click on the Burial fact.
2. In the green bar across the top of the Burial fact screen, click the Source Citations button.
3. Click the "Add a Source Citation" button (also in the green bar, all the way to the right).
4. On the "Create Source Citation" screen, click the "create a new source" link in the first section (Source).
5. Type in the information you want to use for the Source. I use
Name: Find A Grave memorial
Publisher: Jim Tipton's Find A Grave web-site (http://www.findagrave.com)
6. When you have all the information typed in, click the Save button.
7. Back on the "Create Source Citation" screen, type the info you want in the various field in the second section (Citation). I typically use something like:
Detail: John Doe's memorial, with photo
Date: 17 October 2008 [date the memorial as created]; photo added 23 October 2008
Other information: Memorial created by Mary Jones; Photo added by John Brown.
Then paste the memorial URL in the "Web Address" box.
8. In the third section (Media), bullet "No". The photo is not being added to the tree.
9. In the fourth section (Facts or Events), check mark the facts you want this citation applied to. I only checkmark the Burial fact.
10. Click the "Save Source Citation" button.
(Please note: The "Transcription of text" should NOT be a copy and paste of the memorial bio as doing so is also a copyright violation
The source and citation are now recorded - but check to be sure it is correct by clicking the Overview tab. Then click the "1 source citation" link in the Burial fact. Then click the "Find A Grave memorial" link below "Hide source citations". On the Source Citation screen, click the link in the Web Address area and make sure it takes you to the correct memorial.

I you are talking about adding it to Ancestry, you can link directly to the findagrave memorial. If you don't know how to do this, let me know and I'll send instructions.
