I have been researching my family since 1999 and only joined Find a Grave in July 2013.
I will address any suggestions to memorials that I maintain and I will do so in a prompt manor.
I am not, by far, a person that holds on to the letter of the law (guidelines).
When I take on a photo request, I do a little research about surrounding burial sites and see if they need a photo taken or even to be entered into the find a grave website.
I gather the info for others doing research to help in their quest. Should one of those people request maintenance management, I am not opposed to a transfer, especially when I am not related.
When I am related, it will depend on who is the closer relative. If my 3rd cousin is asking to manage a 1st cousin to themselves, which also makes them a 3rd cousin to me, by all means, I will make the transfer. On the reverse, my 3rd cousin is asking about my 1st cousin, I would rather manage that one myself.
Any photos that I have taken may be used in any manner. I only ask that if publicly displayed, you note that it was my photo.
Eugene Cahill Thanks for the photo of Lt. Col. Cahill's grave site.
I sent this info along to the Memorial owner to add to his page:
Lt. Col. Cahill was a B-29 Bombardier in the 770th Bomb Squadron, 462nd Bomb Group (The Hellbirds), 58th Bomb Wing, 20th Air Force during World War II. As part of the Hellbirds, and later on while serving during the Korean and Viet Nam conflicts, he received the following decorations and awards:
Air Medal, with 2 Oak Leaf Clusters, WWII Victory Medal, Asiatic-Pacific Campaign Medal, Philippine Liberation Ribbon, American Campaign Medal, Korean Service Medal, UN Service Medal, National Defense Service Medal with one Bronze Service Star, Air Force Longevity Service Award with 4 OLCs, Republic of Korea Presidential Unit Citation Badge
We live in Atlanta and one of the huge local cemeteries has about 30 photo request. I told Michael that we have to get our lazy butts down there and take them. You were so quick that now I really feel guilty!!
Relationships All the Memorials I ask for I call myself "cousin". Except for the "within the guidelines" parents and such. If I got into the "2nd cousin 5 times removed" bit, I would go nutz.
I'm glad you changed your mind, because there are many serious genealogists out here who want to share more than just asking for links. I add census reports, names of children and who they married, and at the very bottom of the biog I write the Warner lineage from Andrew-1 Warner who came with his wife and several children to the Massachusetts Bay Colony from Broad Oak, Essex, England in 1632-33. Such fun! And such work!
