It makes me sad to see how a person can create a memorial for people and not post a photo of the gravemarkers to go along with it for over five years when they live in the same town as the cemetery. |
What makes it worse is when that person gets offended when someone posts a photo to the memorial in the mean time so at lease family (or family researchers) can see the gravemarker to verify if they have found the right person.
As I too am trying to locate relatives, I much prefer seeing a relatives memorial with a bad, or not so perfect photo, to not seeing anything at all.
Creating memorials for people who are not related to you isn't about tallying hundreds of memorials to your name... it's about creating an avenue for people to find their relatives.
My whole goal is to help people find those they are seeking. If that entails creating a memorial in hopes a relative will find it and I can transfer the memorial to them, or by posting a photo on a photo-less memorial more than 3 years old to help fill in the gaps, I will do it to help as many people as I can.
