Hi! When I discovered Find-A-Grave, I thought it was fantastic! What a great way to preserve history and help other genealogists! I immediately began photographing local cemeteries as a way to give back to others who have helped me and shared information. I love doing it and feel like I am contributing to preserving some of these really old headstones before they become so weathered and decayed that they are illegible. To each their own, but I do not believe I "own" the photographs I take nor do I feel I have a copyright on them! I just don't get that philosophy, but, like I said, everyone has their own thoughts on why they contribute to FAG. I do not volunteer to do this for "credit" in any form—I am doing it to help other genealogists as they search for their ancestor's final resting places. It is always absolutely fine with me if you use any and all photos I have taken for your ancestry.com trees or personal family trees and you do not need to give any credits to me. It has always been my idea that if we, as genealogists, do not share our discoveries and work as one big family, we are just making it harder to complete our own personal history books. As far as transfers, if you are a relative of any degree or just someone "special" to the deceased, I will gladly transfer unless they are also my own relative. I love everything historical and Find-A-Grave is a wonderful gift to us wanting to preserve history. Happy hunting! --Vickie|

I truly appreciate your attitude and philosophy about the genealogy community no matter who they are. I truly wish that all contributors to find-a-grave would show that same principle but sadly, a great deal of them do it for their self ego. It's all about the numbers and they tend to think they're doing it for the preservation of family history. Thank you very much for your contributions.
This is Ron Stoops Lolly's Husband. You are on her friends list and I noticed that you have taken photos in the Neosho area. Lolly has cemetery record books from cemeteries in the area as well as other info. She also has Many many pictures on her computer. I am looking for someone in the area that would be interested in this material. I am going to make a copy of her computer files on flash drive (this includes all her pictures and correspondence) and this will be included. She loved working on the find a grave site and we spent many hours together taking pictures. I do not want this material, but because of her love of the work I would love to see it in the hands of some interested person. She also made maps to the cemeteries in Neosho county and when I find them, they would be included. My email address is firstname.lastname@example.org. I would appreciate it greatly if you would respond to this message.
my phone number is 316-213-5824.

Memorial no. 101496947 should be Doris Bell Lander. The name across the bottom is Landers, but the S must have been a mistake. She might have been the child of Swan and Hulda Lander - we're not sure. They lived in Elsmore. Swan's mother, Mary Lander, died in Savonburg in 1913. Swan's sister, my great-great-grandmother, Ingeburg Woodruff, used to always decorate this grave, and we've continued leaving flowers. The flowers in this photo were left by my father, who is the son of Ingeburg's daughter, Marguerite Woodruff, and her husband.

My guess would be yes. The cemetery records have her as Lurenia & "DOD" (often aka burial date) is July 2, 1955. Why don't you leave that memorial & just direct people to this one (#141058992). If it's ok with you, I will add the obituary to this one as well & indicate the error in the publishment? Kim
