Do you want to copy one of my pictures for not-for-profit personal use / family tree / etc..... You have permission to do so AS LONG AS you give credit back to me. You can do something like:

[photo taken by] -- or --
[photo taken by]

PLEASE NOTE: It is against Find A Grave rules (and Copyright LAW) to copy pictures which are not taken by you. Just because something is on the Internet DOES NOT mean it is free, or without copyright. EVERY picture I have ever taken is, and will always be copyrighted to me (even if it does not have a mark on the photo). Just because I post a picture DOES NOT mean I'm giving my legal rights to my photo's.


PLEASE go to that memorial and hit "EDIT" in the upper right and enter the information there.

For corrections or additions - Please give source - and if possible, write it how you would like it in the memorial (so I can quickly copy-n-paste)

For transfers - Again, go through edit link - and let me know how you are related (ex. "This is my great grandfathers brother") should work.

**** MORE ABOUT ME *****

I live in the East Central Illinois area (around Danville, IL). A project I started a few years back was to get pictures of EVERY headstone in EVERY cemetery in Vermilion County Illinois. I've done that, and have got pictures of EVERY headstone in most of the cemeteries in Edgar, Champaign, and Iroquois counties in Illinois - along with Vermillion and Warren counties in Indiana. Many posted on my personal website:

My "side" project is to fulfill request and add photo's here to Find A Grave, along with RAOGK.

Joseph Beedle, Jr.
I read your information about Joseph Beedle (Bedle), Jr. and wonder if you have any information that proves Jacob Beedle was the Son Of Joseph, Jr. I am trying to become a member of DAR in Kirksville, MO, but I am having trouble proving the link between Joseph and Jacob or Mary Meek and Jacob. Thank you so much.

Gordon Cemetery
Hi, I noticed that you listed Gordon Cemetery in Danville as one of the sites where you have taken photos of markers. I am trying to locate the graves of Robert Clark and his wife, Salome Clark,possibly buried there. Salome died in 1906 and Robert in 1907. I was wondering if you possibly had photos of their markers. You have been helpful in the past and I am just taking a chance that you might have information. Thanks so much! Pam Jamison

Wondering if I could have control of this family's memorials. William M. Montgomery and his wife Alice are my mother's grandparents.

The GPS coordinates for Chenoweth Cemetery near Perrysville In are off a bit. 40.02.539 and 87.26.272 are more accurate.

MT Hope Cemetery - Sidney, IL - Photo of Great Grandmother's Headstone needed
Hi there. If you ever find your way passing out by this cemetery, could you please stop and take a photo of my great grandmother's headstone? Her name is Ida Cox B 1874 D 1906. I have been searching her out for over 15 years and finally tracked her to this cemetery! Thank you and God Bless for anything to make this happen :)

Gerrick D. Smith
I had requested a picture of the Headstone for. Gerrick D. Smith. Find a Grave Memorial #40072027. Got a reply that a volunteer had searched the entire cemetery and could not locate the grave. He was supposed to at Moultree County, Memorial Park. Their is a picture of the cemetery sign on his site taken by you. Did not know if someone had just used your picture or if you were actually able to see his gravesite there. You are the only person from his Memorial that I can contact. Everyone else has there email disabled. Thanks for your help and for all of your contributions to Find A Grave.
