Bio Photo Don't forget the words "Thank you".
They go a LONG way! And the words "You're welcome" don't hurt either.
=====================================
Did you know? When you put in an edit and someone ignores it, the memorial will automatically edit itself in 21 days. The only way it won't is if the person declines it.

THE PERFECT GRAVESTONE PICTURE

1) PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE NO dates or your name through the pictures. This is REALLY tacky!
They look awful and are SO unnecessary!! This is about them, not us.

2) No chopped off around the sides. There should be 'outdoors' around all 4 sides. I want to see what the stone looks like! Some stone pics were chopped to just show the name & date.
This looks awful, get the whole stone in the picture! Many people chop the top of the stone off...why?

3) If there's a tall stone with the info on the side, take a picture of the whole stone and then a picture of the writing.

Example:
Lloyd Smith

4) The stone picture looks best if it's taken in front of the stone, not at an angle. A trick I use to keep my reflection off the stone: I stand behind another stone and use the zoom on the camera.

5) No 'postage stamp' sized pictures. Set your
camera to take regular sized pictures.

6) Please take the time to brush the leaves and grass clippings off the stone.

It's not all about 'point and shoot' to hurry up. Take some time taking the pictures. Let's honor our dead as best as we can by taking beautiful pictures. These pictures will most likely be the only ones on the internet for generations to come!

Hi Cathy,
I just noticed that you posted a picture on my grandfather's memorial #74653564. I was curious where you obtained that photo and if you are related. I don't recognize your name as a family member.
Best Regards,
Art Petruccelli

RE: Julia Drumm
I just noticed the Alton maiden name.
If she is part of your family, would you like me to transfer her memorial?

Transfer of Memorials
Hi Cathy Alton,
I am sorry to hear that you are curbing your activity on Find A Grave. You are appreciated. We know how much work it takes to maintain these memorials.

It you would like to transfer memorials to us, we would be glad to maintain them. We love volunteering for Find A Grave. Taking photographs and supplying information for descendants gives us a joy. For we have benefited from this type of service. So we want to give back.

Thank you for all your hard work & dedication to Find A Grave.

Sincerely, Kim & Virginia

Thank you Cathy!

What a nice surprise you were able to find and photograph George L. Bushong's and Jeanne's stone. And nicely done, too!

Thanks for remembering and thanks for your help.
