I hope you all enjoy the memorials I've created and if any of these people are related to you, please don't hesitate to ask me to transfer them to you. I've also provided links wherever possible to spouses and/or other family members.|
Regarding photos -- Photos posted to memorials on Find A Grave are copyrighted by the member who submitted the photos. Lifting the photo to use elsewhere would be a violation of copyright. You must obtain written permission from the member to use any photo for your own use. In general if you did not take the photo yourself, you do not hold the copyright to the photo. See FindAGrave FAQs for more information.
...I only ask that you give me credit for my work. This statement applies to using my photos on OTHER websites -- not FindAgrave. You cannot copy my photos to put on a duplicated memorial on FindAGrave. Apparently, this needs to be specified because some people try to find loopholes everywhere. Courtesy and common sense should guide you but if you aren't sure, you can ask me.
If you want to attach a memorial to your family tree on Ancestry, FindAGrave is listed as a source under the birth, marriage, death section. You may have to look for it, but if it's on this website, then within a short time after adding it, it will be on Ancestry, too. If you must put the photo on your tree, please add, "Photo compliments of VickiO of FindAGrave", with a link to this page.
I do want to thank all those people out there who have thanked me for my photos and memorials, who have politely asked for transfers and permission to use my photos and those who have brought me to tears by telling me the back story behind finding a memorial for a cherished relative or friend on FindAGrave because of my work. I do this for those people.

|Diane Fisher||Re: Elizabeth Monahan Quackenbush|
Are you related to Elizabeth? If so I may have made
a boo-boo. I think I may have added a photo to her Find - A - Grave, by accident. If so, could you delete it, please. They Lady I meant to add it to is Elizabeth Casteline - Moore #145758166
I am so sorry for making this error on your Find - A Grave Memorial # 113338388 I am related through marriage to all concerned.
Again I am so sorry,
|Doug V||Transfers please|
Hi Vicky, thanks for stumbling across Andrew Ingram (109617080) and Richard Ingram (109617068). I visited Cedar Lawn a couple years ago and couldn't find them. They are my grandmother's uncle and grandfather. Could you please transfer management of them to me? Thanks so much!

I mistakenly sent an Edit today for the name of Member id # 46169134. I asked that the maiden name of "Krotje" be added.
This was an error. (I sent this edit for the wrong person).
I am sorry about that. Can you please remove this edit since it is erroneous?

|Bob (Critchley) n Elaine (Betz) VanDuren||Thank you for transferring my relatives memorials: Thomas and Ellen Critchley to me|
06Nov2016~ Thank you, thank you, thank you VickiO for transferring my maternal great uncle Thomas (57463939) and His wife Ellen (Bote) Critchley (57463946) to me so quickly. There are 4 more Critchley relatives in Cedar Lawn Cemetery (Paterson, NJ) are will be asking you to transfer soon*: i.e. Alfred, (another) Alfred, Alice Ann, and Margaret Critchley; As well as the 3 Critchleys you manage in Laurel Grove Memorial Park cemetery (Totowa, NJ): i.e. Eunice G., Ronald Critchley Sr., and especially my cousin Russell Thomas Critchley.
Thank you for all your hard work as a FindAGrave volunteer. Appreciatively Bob Cookie and Elaine VanDuren. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ P.S. 1) I can send individual requests later with Memorial numbers. 2) If I call Laurel Grove Memorial Park and see if I need to prepay them the $75, can I get you to photograph my Critchley **grandparents and aunt (Joseph, Georgina and Hazel) gravestone that is in Laurel Grove? (I can give you more details later. Plus, photo request for them** is already here on FindAGrave). *or as soon as I am able. Again, thank you for all your hard work as a FindAGrave volunteer.
|Carole Elizabeth Nurmi Cummings # 47178231||Hugs of appreciation sent your way!|
Thanks ever EVER sooooo much. AM QUITE excited to get the two Van Vlaanderen families correctly sorted out. Will call the cemetery on Thursday to see if any of the other relatives are buried in the plots. This all started when there was a DNA HIT on this branch for a fellow who was adopted. He contacted me when ancestry suggested a descendant of this family was related to him. Since there are two John's and two Cornelius Van Vlaanderens most trees are getting the families mixed up. I was glad I was able to locate the obit for Peter VV because trees were thinking that Cornelius born within a year of Peter were one in the same. Will chat again. Am typing from my phone. Hugs sent your way
Vicki, thank you so much for all your help and cooperation. I appreciate all your volunteer work for Find A Grave. Thanks for fulfilling my photo requests. Judy
