I had been routinely posting obituaries to the memorials I created. Then someone complained to the Find A Grave administrators about one of the obituaries. The Administrators made me aware of their policies regarding posting of obituaries in any manner to memorials. This is what it says in the "Help with Find A Grave" section:

"Can I add an obituary to my interment listing? You should not copy obituary notices from newspapers (or from funeral home notices or web sites) to an individual's memorial record unless you have permission from the newspaper to do so or you are the author of the obituary. Some obituaries that were published in 1922 or earlier
are now in the public domain. In general, obituaries in newspapers are submitted by the family with assistance from the funeral home. If the obituary is added to the memorial record, it should list the newspaper and date the obit was printed for example "Published in the Hattiesburg American, Hattiesburg, Mississippi, Internet Edition, April 11, 2007". Please do not include the names of living or surviving relatives in the biography, unless you have their permission. If you do not have permission to copy an obituary to a memorial, you may put a
note stating the name of the newspaper and the date the obituary was published. Please do NOT add photographs from obituary notices (unless you, personally took the photo), as they are protected by copyright law. Find A Grave reserves the right to remove obituary
notices and photographs from memorial records. Similarly, you may NOT scan an obituary and add it as a photograph to a memorial record. Obituaries for "famous" individuals are usually written by newspaper staff and can not be posted to Find A Grave as the newspaper company owns that copyright. Please do not include website addresses that may be listed in the obituary as they usually expire within a year after the obituary is printed."

I thought the wording was a bit ambiguous so I emailed the administrators and their reply was, in no uncertain terms, that we MUST have written permission from the newspaper of online
source to copy and post obituaries in Find A Grave memorials.

Thank you so much for sending the edit to link William King #88604304 to his parents.

I would be pleased if you would go to my Bio and visit my parents' memorials by clicking on their links.

Geraldine Danielsen
Hi Jodie,
I was just going to link Geraldine's parents to her and it looks like you beat me to it. I was wondering if you are related and might have knowledge of her larger family? I am helping to update records at the cemetery so we better comprehend all the burials. The Carl Danielsen plot has 2 additional stones that match Carl and his wife Friedericke. One says Dorothea and one says Reta. I'm trying to determine if these women may have been daughters of Carl and Friedericke. Do you know anything about them?

RE: Angelia Strickrott
Myself and my parents are going to purchase a headstone for her once we have the money to, as money has been tight foe years and headstones aren't cheap. I have a specific design for hers that's on file with a headstone company in Demotte and all we need now is the $1000+ to afford it. Thanks for checking up on this matter for me.
