RE: dixon photos
Posting a photo to a memorial takes _less_ time than sending them to a whole bunch of people by email. Here are the simple steps from the FAQs:

How do I add a photo?
1. Log in to your account (which if you're reading this, you've already done)
2. Go to the individual's memorial record
3. Click the "Add a photo" button on the right side of the memorial record
*OR* (if you've claimed a Photo Request, simply go to the Request and click "Fulfill")
4. Follow the instructions (which are:)
a) Choose a file (the photo to upload from your computer)
b) Click the "Add this photo" button
c) Add a caption (optional; could be the Section/Plot location, or just nothing)
d) Click the "Add this photo and caption" button
e) You're done

As you can see from the other notes on your profile, most memorial contributors would prefer that you simply post the photo, rather than sending by email. Besides, for copyright reasons, we're only permitted to post pictures we ourselves have taken. So all around it's just simpler if you post the ones you've taken.

I'm sorry if you do not feel that your other commitments will permit you the less-than-a-minute per photo that this would take. I do hope, however, that someone will eventually visit your uncle's resting place in France, take a photo of his gravestone, and post it here for you on Find-a-Grave.

All the best, =]) Beth

Not necessary to email photos to me personally
Thank you for taking the photos as I had requested. Please post them onto the memorials. You cn email them to me at if you do not know how to post them. Easier if you do just post them. You'll want to master that. Take your time.
We are very grateful to you for your efforts.

RE: dixon photos
Hi, Jackie, and a hearty Welcome to Find-A-Grave!

If you're referring to my two requests in Dixon's Union Cemetery, Brampton, for Robert and Elizabeth Giffen, I do thank you very much for your time and kindness in taking photos there.

However, it's not necessary to email anything to anyone -- simply post your photo(s) directly to the relevant Find-A-Grave memorials. A notification message will automatically be sent to the Photo Requester that the request has been successful, and we/they will likely visit the memorial as soon as possible to view whatever has been added by the generous volunteer photographer!

If you require any help in posting the photos, you might wish to review the how-to's in the 'Help with Find A Grave'/ Frequently Asked Questions (see the sidebar at the top left of each screen). There's a lot of good and useful information in the FAQs. :)

Several of the memorials in Dixon's were created by my cousin Glen Carter, and although I've been to the cemetery myself on several occasions, I wasn't able to find Robert and Elizabeth Giffen's monument on those trips. So 3 years ago I entered the Photo Requests on Glen's behalf. Once you've posted your photos, I'll be happy to alert Glen to their presence - I'm sure he'll be thrilled that someone (you) has added them at last!

For any photos you've taken where there are not already memorials created in the Find-a-Grave cemetery -- and keep in mind that anyone can post pix to any memorial (with a maximum of 5 per memorial) -- then that's when you yourself can create memorials for the rest of the names in your photos... and bingo, you're not only a Photo Volunteer, but a active Contributor!!!

Once again, thanks for letting me know, and many best wishes towards your continuing participation here on Find-a-Grave!
