I manage~~not own~~the memorials I place on FindaGrave. Please use the SAC (edit feature) when asking for changes. This prevents mistakes because the edit feature connects me to the right memorial. Please read this ★ ☆ ★ FAQs ★ ☆ ★ before you intentionally make a duplicate of a memorial (which is a no no): I do transfer out of guidelines a lot if I feel you will maintain the memorial you request better than I can ~ which means a beloved aunt, cousin, best friend, etc. (Just don't ask for a whole cemetery or a whole list of the same name especially if you happened to find this site and have been a member for a few days). Stick around for awhile - contribute. Although a great place for genealogy this is a GRAVES REGISTRATION SITE!

Permission has been given to GenealogyTrails.com to use my photos for their excellent site.
YES - you have permission to use the photos I took for your personal family files. I would appreciate it if you cited where you found the photo and if possible link back to FindAGrave.com.
However unless you are a nonprofit organization, this is not to be copied & pasted on a commercial site or used for commercial publication without permission.

I love to have additional information to add to the memorials. In winter I go through what I have put up and link families, find additional dates, etc. Although it looks like I have more than I can handle, I have had no problem adding suggested information. I have 35 years of experience in family history research and will be happy to add links or more biographical information on your family.

If you are requesting a photo - all information is helpful. Many people only have flat to the ground memorials, and they are difficult to find. If you know of other family names that might be close by, that is very helpful in large cemeteries. Also if your memorial served in the military, that is very helpful as most cemeteries commemorate with a flag.

I love the challenge of photographing really old stones. I also love the zincs - which were an inexpensive product for the time but have outlasted some of the more expensive marbles and granites. The zincs were very popular during the Prohibition Era because the insides were hollow and easily accessible.

The people we ~meet~ in these resting places are integral in putting together family history. The memorial may be all that is left.
★ ☆ ★ ☆ ★ ☆ ★ ☆ ★ ☆ ★ ☆ ★ ☆ ★ ☆
Thank you to all the volunteers who have added photos to my memorials, taken the time to send me information, added their own memorials, found a dupe or two, and have been kind and respectful.
★ ☆ ★ ☆ ★ ☆ ★ ☆ ★ ☆ ★ ☆ ★ ☆ ★ ☆
It is so important that if you have an old cemetery near you, to get these stones recorded before weather and/or vandals get to them.
★ ☆ ★ ☆ ★ ☆ ★ ☆ ★ ☆ ★ ☆ ★★ ☆
I do try to wipe off debris and pull some overgrown grass out of the way, but I will not harm the stone in any way. Plus I do not pull up flowers, even if they are wilted.
It's a bit of work to take the photos, re size and sometimes enhance the lettering to be made readable, enter names and upload the photos. I do this lovingly. Please respect that.
★ ☆ ★ ☆ ★ ☆ ★ ☆ ★ ☆ ★ ☆ ★
I have a camera that takes good photos,however the condition of the stone may make it unreadable or the stone is so damaged that there is no information. Bright sunny days might be good for walks but can wash out headstone inscriptions. I do retakes a lot.

Thank You For The Transfer
C Greer--It takes diligent and persistent cemetery walkers to allow so many graves of ancestors/relatives to be discovered. There are so many relations that scatter across the country, continent, and the world, that were it not for the pictures archived here, we would never have a picture or knowledge where they are all buried. I "THANK YOU"

RE: and Elmer
No problem! We moved to within walking distance of Riverside Cemetery and I enjoy taking pictures for people who live away.

Samuel Murtland Page Memorial
Mr. (Ms) Greer,

Just saw the PAGE monument and my Father stone on Find a Grave. Just wanted to send my thanks for its inclusion on the site.

You are correct as to the Spousal relationship you have included. That is, however my fathers second marriage. He was first married to my mother Sylvia Wells Morss who passed away in April 22, 2014. She is interred at Mt Auburn Cemetary in Massachusetts.

I haven't checked to see if the MORSS plot is on the site, but it would be a very interesting place for you to visit. If you do and can get the MORSS plot on, that would be great!

Love genealogy and have discovered many ancestors. I see you have volunteers from time to time, so I would love to offer my services if you ever need them. I live in Torrington, Litchfield county, CT. Thanks again, Sam Page, Jr

Quick Response
Hi.

I appreciated your quick response to my request to make Aunt Barbara Uncle Jim's wife.

Today, I added 2 memorials in St. Mary New Britain. They are the parents of Uncle Jim (Francis Selander). I am going to send a picture request, too.

I looked hard to make sure that the parents were not already in, before I added them.
