I received the obit for Mr. Aaron. However copying and posting obits without permission is a Findagrave "no no." So that is why I edit them. See below:

Can I add an obituary to my interment listing?
Do not copy obituary notices from newspapers (or from funeral home notices or web sites) to an individual's memorial record unless you have permission from the newspaper to do so or you are the author of the obituary. Some obituaries that were published in 1922 or earlier are now in the public domain. In general, obituaries in newspapers are submitted by the family with assistance from the funeral home. If the obituary is added to the memorial record, list the newspaper and date the obit was printed for example "Published in the Hattiesburg American, Hattiesburg, Mississippi, Internet Edition, April 11, 2007". Please do not include the names of living or surviving relatives in the biography, unless you have their permission. If you do not have permission to copy an obituary to a memorial, you may put a note stating the name of the newspaper and the date the obituary was published.
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.
Obituaries for "famous" individuals are usually written by newspaper staff and can not be posted to Find A Grave as the newspaper company owns that copyright.
Please do not include website addresses that may be listed in the obituary as they usually expire within a year after the obituary is printed. [Top]

Can I add a memorial from a newspaper or other 3rd party source?
Find A Grave does not discourage the legitimate indexing of the deceased through obituaries or other 3rd party accounts. Newspapers represent a very good source of information as a public record. What we ask is that those who index and memorialize the deceased from newspapers and other 3rd party accounts do so with full respect of copyright, refrain from adding information about living people, and respond generously to the family of the deceased. If anyone related to the deceased feel unsatisfied with Find A Grave or the memorial manager, we ask that they contact us at for satisfactory resolution.

I don't know if the death month is Jun or Jul. June was given to me by a family member in ID. I am inclined to believe Jul, as on the marker, is correct, so I am changing it to Jul. Thanks for the information. Idaho death records has July as the month of death.

Re: Etcharts
Hello Lesa,

You are very welcome for the grave marker photos of the Etcharts. Hope they were OK. I try to include obituaries along with photo requests, but had no luck finding obits for either Grace or Jack. Cemetery records state the place of death of Grace was Riverside, Riverside County, and that Jack died in Hemet, Riverside County.

Enjoy your family search, and "Find a Grave".

Best regards,
Dan (Hemet, California)
