I consider all of the photos I post to be public domain. Please feel free to use them on other projects.

I frequently photograph entire cemeteries and make memorials for those stones that are not represented. If I own memorials for your friends and relatives I will be glad to transfer ownership to anyone who will keep them up.

Wrong name
I am so sorry for calling you Laurel instead of Katherine. No good excuse so I won't even try to find one!

Carol Hovrud Yerigan memorial
Thank you once again, Laurel, for your fast cooperation. It is so very much appreciated.

I have been trying since Aug. 4th to get another contributor dells #46799965 to transfer two of my other relatives to me but she is completely ignoring me and I have no idea why. She is not related to them and is a major contributor of many memorials so I would think it would be a relief to have two less memorials to keep up with especially when it means so much to me.

I would really like to have my uncle Dale McCracken Memorial# 86647268 and his wife Edna McCracken Memorial# 93824983 under my contributor #. Another contributor Ellen Bishop sent dells a message on Aug 8th and had an immediate response from her. Ellen sent this message: "I got a reply from Dells and sent her your email and the numbers for your two relatives; I hope you hear from her." I have yet to hear from dells.

I didn't plan to vent on you, Laurel, but I am just so frustrated. Nothing I have done seems to do any good in getting these two memorials transferred to me.

P. S. on Killion inquiry above
Also need to add - when I found this burial place of my ancestor John H. Killion, I had worked also with the Smith-Zimmerman Museum and the South Dakota GenWeb site; this led me to the 1985 cemetery survey notes done by dedicated individuals of the local historical society. Their notes had some incorrect connections - I gave to all these sources what I deemed to be the correct information about this burial (surname spelling, matching up correct wives' names, finding local newspaper clippings, obtaining church death register information). I did not ask anyone to change the original facts, but I noticed on later follow-ups to re-check the same path I took to find it, that changes had been made to the way their original information about this grave displayed in their computer system; I assume this is the Index talked about. It was all updated, changed, to what I said I'd found thus far as his descendant/researcher. And while I am 100% confident in my conclusions, I was dismayed the original historical records were changed, just based on one person's inquiry. I believe my "corrections" should only have been noted as an addendum. I correspond with other descendants of his and have shared how his burial was found. Thanks again for any input you have about this one, sorry so long here but I am relentlessly dedicated to get the correct facts about him. -K

John Killion Headstone photo #179963087
Hello - I descend from this man and visited his grave a few years ago. Thank you for providing this photo - it is very nice and sharper than most of mine. I wondered if the stone was clear of moss when you photographed it; when I left it, it had more lichen on top and on base. Also, here at FindAGrave it was posted as "John Handley Killion" and his middle name is not on his stone. Do you know how that information was connected to this memorial? We researchers have not confirmed beyond a doubt that he was of that name and spelling. I contacted volunteer Becky on this memorial and she had no notes specific to this name, suggested ask you. She said she worked from the cemetery's index. I worked with the church staff and the notes from the 1985 cemetery survey and and the records did not have that name. Just curious. I do discuss this name on his tree in He is my main work so I try to see all angles. Thank You! Kathy K

RE: Dale McCracken
That's what I was afraid of and the person who owns it doesn't take any messages so I guess my uncle Dale's memorial stays as it is. Bummer! Thanks for your time.
