New rules Hi. I see you are not a fan of allowing others to republish your photos. Just a heads up about Find A Grave’s new rules about that. "Our Terms of Service allow photos posted to Find A Grave to be shared amongst the Ancestry Community. As a result, you can post photos you found on Find A Grave to your Find A Grave memorials or on other Ancestry Community websites. We recommend that you provide attribution to the user who originally posted the photo before reposting it anywhere." You don't have a choice.
I apologize for any misunderstandings. It was not my intent to take any credit for your photos. I apologize if that is what you believe.
I gave total credit to your site. If you would have clicked on the photos you would have seen your website address listed in the description under the photos as the source of the photo. My intent was to make people aware of your site and wealth of information. Not take any credit what so ever for your photos. They have been deleted.
Feel free to use any of my photos that I have posted. I love to share! I am just trying to get people connected with their loved ones.
I would like to give you and your associates a great big thank you for all of your hard work and dedication. Believe me I know what time and effort you have put into all of your postings.
Ogamaw Twp. Cem. I really don't understand what your big Fuss is! I didn't realize I was Stealing (as you say). I thought it was nice someone was taking pictures so others , miles away, can have photos of their ancesters graves. Do you want me to remove the photos or my name or what? I'm not one of these people who delight in getting X number of Find A Grave pages or sites. I'm just doing family history for others in my family to have as keepsakes history. Why are you doing the photos if not for others to use? Carolyn
RE: Castonguays Oh and about findagrave and photos..I don't think they really know where pictures come from. If someone takes a picture from another person or site and saves it to their computer and posts it they have no idea where it came from. I would not hold that against them. Please include your maiden name if different so I can share with Robs widow. And we will talk about his fathers death...which father. Thanks Jan
RE: Castonguays Thank you so much for your understanding and I had no idea so many steal photos on here. That is a shame but I have run into a few undesirables here too. It's everywhere. My sister in law Eileen would love to hear that you knew her husband. Rob was a wonderful man and we all miss him. They also lost a son as you can see if you look into my virtual cemeteries. I would love to have any information or other information you might have. Please email me at my personal email listed here on this site. Thanks Jan
RE: Holy Family Cemetery-Ogemaw County You are so right and I apologize. Looking at the date I was a new member to findagrave - (if my calculations are right based on date of photos posted and my membership time I was a five day member) and although not an excuse I was not aware of posting others photos obviously. I did not even have these memorials in my virtual cemeteries so I was very new.
I would never deliberately take credit for anything I did not do and when I post photos or information, I always give credit to the source if I did not obtain it myself. ie: obits, photos, etc.
The Castonguays are my sister in law's deceased husbands family and I was probably thrilled to have found them for her and her husband at that time as they knew very little of his family.
Again I am sorry and you can rest assured that I do not do that now by any means. Thank you for posting the credit on the photo and for your hard work with the historical society. Jan
RE: Cemetery Photos I just checked my postings and all of the volunteer photos I have taken and NOT ONE of them is in Ogemaw County. I would never steal a photo or pawn it off as my own. I believe you have the wrong person. Please be specific if you have a legitimate complaint.
Lydia Dille Lovewell Hi, Grace, my husband is the great-grandson of Michael Nehemiah Lovewell, the youngest child of Nehemiah and his second wife, Susan Allington. After Nehemiah's death, Susan remarried and moved to Wood County, Ohio where she died in 1883. It was Susan who was moved because of water seepage, although the grave marker was left where it was. She is now in the new part of Weston Cemetery although exactly where is not known. We suspect she is next to Michael. It is not known where Lydia is buried. Judith
