Bio and Links
Bio Photo I started at a young age with the interest for the dead. This photo was taken in about 1957 at the Aztec Ruins in New Mexico. I am on the left and my cousin Diane Quinn on the right.

Researching my family history is one of the most important goals in my life. I feel we should all know as much about our ancestors as possible. Through my research I have been able to spend quality time with my sister, Sandra Bertram MEIER. Researching has brought lots of people into my life I would never have met otherwise. Let's all keep up the good work.

I have just come across my pictures on that someone has used as their own. There is no mention of where the picture came from. This is ashame. For all of you that tramp through knee high grass, work in the hot Texas sun, and in the cold north wind, use your own gas and then try to find a tree big enough when nature calls, you know what I am talking about. Please if you want to use my pictures or anyone elses please have the decency to ask before posting and give credit where credit is due.

"...The copyright of all photos posted to Find A Grave remains with the original submitter. No use of photos for any other website or personal use is permitted without the prior consent of the original submitter."

Since I am getting so many requests for transfers I have started using the findagrave guidelines for transfer. You do not need to own an ancestors memorial page to have a great memorial. I update them each day and will add to a memorial. Just use the edit button on the top right hand of the memorial to be edited.

Hi Janet, Thank you for taking the photos of the headstones of my cousin, Dora E Smitheal and her spouse, Claude E Smitheal, and posting them on Find A Grave. I would like your permission to use them in my family tree on I am sorry your photos have been used without permission - these two have, as well. However, if you give me permission, I will place your name in the title along with the admonition to contact you to use the photo. I understand your frustration. I allow anyone to use the few photos I have placed on Find A Grave, but I did not spend hours in the sun taking them, either - I retrieved them from my stash of family photos and scanned them in my air conditioned office! Quite a difference in effort.

The photos of my relatives' headstones enhance their profile page (I use the photos in the 'Death' section of the page) and add character to my tree.

Again, thank you for your hard work, your time and your perseverance. And, most of all, your generosity.

Do you have the section number and plot number? If not you can contact the cemetery at 281-332-3111 and they will look it up for you. The cemetery is so large and without this info it would be hard to locate. I will be happy to go photograph the marker/monument for you.

Permission to use photos

First I want to thank you for your time and effort in taking and uploading photos to the website. I would like to ask your permission to save the photos to my computer system that you took for for my personal genealogy research and posting to my family tree online. I will give credit to your work. Will you permit me to do that?

I really appreciate this,

Tia Rutledge

RE: Annie J Walling
Janet, I do not know the first name of Mr. Walling. I am hoping that since you have added in the bio the clarification of her legal last name, someone else will know the answer to the question.

I noticed that his tombstone reads 6 Jul 1888 as death date, not June.
