|Jan Beasley||Please do not "photoshop" headstone images|
Tim, it is really great that you have taken so many photos of headstones and posted them to Find A Grave. These photos have been a real help to me and many others.
I was just looking at the headstone photo for Joseph J., son of J. N. and I. B. Keith. Nice job of gently brushing away the leaves and getting a picture in good light so that it is readable. However, I can see that you have "PHOTOSHOPPED" the months of birth and death. (It is good that you have not altered the years of birth and death or names.) I would prefer (and I think other users of Find A Grave would prefer) that you leave the photo as is, with no alterations.
If you are able to see the headstone information, but you can only get a so-so photo, the proper thing to do is post the best photo you can get, and then in the description of the photo, type the information as you have read it in person. That way family historians and genealogists can get the most accurate record of what is known and who found the information and how.
(Perhaps a little tweaking of brightness and contrast of the photos would be OK, but NOTHING else.)
Please keep up the good work of going to the cemeteries, finding the graves, and taking and posting the photos. It is such a big help when we live too far away to go to the graves ourselves. Thank you.

|Jan Beasley||Agnes (Spear) Everhart|
Tim, you have posted a photo on the memorial page of Agnes (Spear) Everhart (Find A Grave Memorial# 47168648) in Wesley Chapel Cemetery that is NOT a photo of her grave. The photo you have posted is the grave of Nancy Agnes (Davidson) Peacock. It is lying on the ground next to the stone of her husband, William Peacock, in the section of the cemetery that is across the road from the church.
The Find A Grave community expects you to be careful and accurate when you post photos. The stone of Agnes (Spear) Everhart will be a newer stone and her name should be Agnes Everhart on the stone and it should be near her husband.
Appropriate photos for Find A Grave are also not "Photo-Shopped" with frames, etc. Two natural photos of a stone would be preferred - one of the entire stone and one with good lighting that shows the inscription and name on the stone as clearly as possible. If the stone is dirty or covered with moss and lichen, a gentle brushing with a very soft brush and some plain water is all that is safe for the stone. No chalk or anything should be used.
The Find A Grave community appreciates your time and efforts to photograph the graves, but it is not useful to any of us if it is not accurate and careful.

Thanks for the quick link up to his parents!
|Doris Wynn||Riley Stocker|
Thank you so much for taking the time to locate, photograph, and post Riley's gravestone picture. I really appreciate it.
This stone is covered with lichen(?) and I can see it getting worse over time. So glad you were able to get the photo while it is still readable.
Thank you so much for taking the photo of Alice's grave. I truly appreciate it.

Yes, thanks very much for those good photos. There are a lot of people related to me in that cemetery, so it helps to have the pictures.
