|Bio and Links|
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.

Greetings, I found two memorials for same person created by you, do you prefer me to write it here or use the edit tab on one of them? Thanks for all your wonderful work.
|Friends of Cedar Lawn Cemetery||Joseph Buckley|
I just wanted to call your attention to the Find A Grave memorial for Joseph Buckley (#168905659). The two photos that you included on Mr. Buckley's page do not belong to this gentleman. This particular Joseph Buckley died in 1912 and is buried in Section 9 of Cedar Lawn.
I created a memorial for the Joseph Buckley (#183582368) whose pictures you included on the other Buckley memorial. You may wish to post those photos on the Joseph Buckley memorial that I just entered. This particular Joseph Buckley was the son of Benjamin Buckley, and died in 1887.
Thanks for correcting this.
|Ferber||RE: Capt Thomas DeKay|
I'm sorry. You sent a message to me regarding the cemetery for Capt. Thomas DeKay and Mary Roe DeKay several years ago and I just found it.
I think people may refer to it as DeKay cemetery # something. There are at least three of the DeKay cemeteries in the area. I've been to the area twice and found one by the railroad tracks and another in town, but not this one.
I would love to have the photos if you would send them. Thank you.
My email is email@example.com. Thank you again.

|Steven M||RE: Neeltje Kornet|
The one you found is the correct cemetery. Had not realised I misspelled the name in my message.

Thank you for the photo!
|Jim Baker||Re: Evan C. Jones memorial|
Well, thanks again so much -- every little bit helps, especially with a Jones. Good luck with your research!
|Jim Baker||Re: Evan Jones burial in Laurel Grove Cem., Totowa, NJ|
Thank you so much for the quick reply. Incidentally, is your hard-to-find William Campbell the same Scottish (or Irish) immigrant to Paterson, NJ, died April 19, 1871, married to a woman named Rachel? Because this Rachel was an aunt to Evan C. Jones and Mrs. Stephen Storms.
|Jim Baker||Evan Jones burial in Laurel Grove Cem., Totowa, NJ|
I have a quick question about Memorial #74515387, Evan C. Jones (1842-1910). Your notes on the memorial state:
"brother of Mrs Stephen Storms, of Paterson
late residence 16 Maple st, Rutherford, NJ"
Would you please let me know where you got this information? I am a descendant of Mrs. Stephen Storms (her maiden name was Louisa Jones, Memorial #70923451), and the Jones family has been intensely hard to research!
Thank you so much,
