|Jingles McCormack||RE: Erma Heiman|
could you get me my Uncle headstone pic, and we could wait a while longer to see if they add my aunts headstone.. could ya do that?
I am Sheila's cousin, and she mentioned you to me. I saw where you left a message that you "... couldn't figure out how to upload my photos until my claims had expired".
If no one else claims after your claim expires, you may upload and you will still fulfill the request. If someone claims, then it is necessary to wait to see if they can fulfill within the 2 weeks they are allowed, whereby then you may upload.
If the request is fulfilled, but your photo differs, you may also wish to upload.
Thanks for all your efforts,

HiConnie, I didn't see your message but I did claim the photo request for Henry Winterburn.

Hi Connie Grant- Leanna,
Thank you for posting the photos. I see the notifications, but I am running on empty at the mo and have not looked. Will drop you a line when I do (later today), but I am sure you did a fabulous job!!
Now, for your query; if I understand correctly, you took photos for several family member's headstones where a request has not been made. Under the assumption that no photos have been posted to those memorials, you are free to post, regardless of if a photo request has been made.
Here is some guidance:
"What kind of photos may be added to a memorial page?"
"You may add photos of the headstone, of the person, family, or home. ... There is a limit of 5 photos for non-famous memorials that have not been sponsored. ... Any contributor can upload an appropriate photo to any memorial regardless of who manages the page. No permission from the memorial manager is needed. However, if there is already a photo of the headstone, a second similar photo should not be added unless the original is of poor quality and the new photo is dramatically better. This leaves room for photos of the deceased within the five-photo limit on unsponsored memorials."
Now, just for some added info, if there is no headstone, I generally appreciate and accept the following as fulfillment of the request:
"What if there is no headstone?"
"Some people fulfill the photo request with photographs of the area where the individual was buried. In the photo's description, please indicate that there is no head stone and give specifics as to where the the grave is - such as right next to the headstone for someone else or to the left of the tree (do this via captioning).
Some people further enhance the photograph by:
-Placing one of the following to mark the grave location - flowers, flag, or DAR emblem
-Photographing the area and adding a graphical outline to the photograph to show exactly where the grave is located.
-Do not use computer generated markers.
-Do not post a graphic stating "no gravestone" or similar language."
Personally speaking, I feel it's good to bring along a few flowers from the dollar stone to mark unmarked graves.
Alright, Ms Connie Grant-Leanna .. have to grab some shut eye. Hope this helps,

|Sheila||George R Frost|
Hi Connie Grant - Leanna,
Thank you for your message and for accepting my photo request, re: George Frost, # 124856963 . It appears you are a new member; welcome to our little group.
Now, as you are a new member, I am hoping you will be so kind as to bear with me while I ramble a bit here concerning your questions and providing some possible tips and info that you may hopefully find useful.
"I photographed the grave of George E. Frost 1913 to 1947. Since this d. date is different, I thought I should check before sending it in. While at the cemetery I also found and photographed George R. Frost 1881-1965, his wife Anna 1884-1930, Harry C. Frost 1885-1941, his wife Maggie K. 1882-1935, George Frost 1846-1911 and his wife Lucy 1847-1907. I will share any and all if you would like."
My photo request:
Thank you for your generous offer to freely share all photos as well as for taking them. The George Frost I WAS looking for was the George married to Annie. The online obit record is as follows:
FROST, George R.; 65; 24 Aug 1946 OWH morn p 15 @ Prospect Hill Elkhorn* @
So I WAS looking for a George R Frost who, given his age of 65 and his death year of 1946, was born ca 1880-81 and would have passed away probably in August of 1946 by the news account (I assumed this obit was for the George married to Annie due to his age / YOB). MY George R 1881 was indeed married to Annie, but from your info, MY George R Frost passed away in 1965 (*scratches head).
Did you happen to capture a grouping of George and Annie (both stones in one photo)? If you have not taken Annie and George together, would it be possible to do so? I hate to ask in this cold weather, plus to ask for an extra effort, but there does appear to be a discrepancy. A stand alone photo does not tie MY George to Annie (which is why I now generally try to post an additional photo of family members nearby; record accuracy).
George E Frost:
Now as for George E, 1911-1947; there was not a memorial for him, so I created one. Are you interested in creating memorials? I am getting a very strong feeling that Prospect Hill is VERY under-represented on Find, and that MANY people there are not recorded in the Find database. If you are, I will turn George 1911-1947 over to you as he was your discovery.
For similar cemeteries I have found here, I just start taking photos row by row, and then checking to see if the persons have a memorial. If not, I create a memorial and post the photo. If they are and have no photo, I upload one for that memorial.
Now, as for the other Frost family members you mentioned:
The George Frost 1846-1911 and his wife, Lucy 1847-1907, already have photos present on their memorials. (I requested that George and Lucy be linked as husband and wife)
Harry C. Frost 1885-1941, and his wife, Maggie 1882-1935, already have photos present on their memorials. (I requested that they be linked as husband and wife).
Now, regarding whether or not you might consider posting photos for these persons, please allow me to refer yo to Find guidance:
"Any contributor can upload an appropriate photo to any memorial regardless of who manages the page. No permission from the memorial manager is needed. However, if there is already a photo of the headstone, a second similar photo should not be added unless the original is of poor quality and the new photo is dramatically better. This leaves room for photos of the deceased within the five-photo limit on unsponsored memorials."
So, if the photos you took were better, of a different perspective, etc ... post. Otherwise ...
What I generally do when I am at a cemetery taking photos is to observe the area for possible family members. I might "guess" how the persons are related (such as husband and wife) and take a photo GROUPING of the two of them. Then I check records, generally on FamilySearch.org, to see if I am correct. If I am, I post if there is no similar photo present, regardless of if there is an INDIVIUDAL headstone photo.
Families - I do the same (sons, daughters, etc). I do not assume that a husband and wife buried amongst persons with a different surname are unrelated to those other persons. Often these are married daughters. Example, Myrtle McDaniel, who is buried amongst the Jackson family members along with her sister, Dycie Arnold, Find A Grave Memorial# 27798755 (please enlarge plot photo to read caption).
Another thing I do when at cemeteries, just as an example (see # 28338806 , area photo).
So, all and all, I would request that you post a photo to George 1911-1947 as he has none. Please let me know if you are willing and able to post a photo for George and Annie so their relationship is clear, and in the meantime, please post the photo for George (1881-1965) if you will, to fulfill that request.
I hope I did not come off as rude or bossy, and again, thanks much for your efforts.
