I have been doing genealogy research for over 20 years now, both my husbands and my lines. We travel around in our RV most of the year, so while on the road, I try to find cemeteries where our families reside. |
I just joined Find A Grave and what a great community! I love sharing, so if there are questions out there, please don't hesitate to ask.
As you might have figured out, I am not associated with any given cemetery other than those that have our family members and then it is just their memorials.

|D Jensen||RE: Lower Cove|
I'm new to Find A Grave, so that is possible :) I'm trying to correct some burial information for this record (#15960384) it also affects others in the same family. A pic of Lower Cove Cemetery (credited to you) is posted on this memorial page, it does not accurately reflect where this person is buried, so I wanted to pursue changing it. Possibly someone else added the photo? Or the photo is automatically added when the cemetery was chosen from the Find A Grave database by creator of the memorial? I have contacted the creator of the page to try to correct inaccuracies--the cemetery this person is buried at is not in the Find A Grave database, I think the listed cemetery was just the closest that could be found. And even the location of the Lower Cove Cemetery is incorrect. So just a whole chain of unfortunate errors. I am going to pursue adding the correct cemetery to the Find A Grave database, and correcting the information on Lower Cove cemetery and hopefully that will help. Thank you!

This is regarding the Lower Cove Cemetery photo posted on the John "Dunham" Wright page. This photo represents incorrect information as he is buried in the Medical Springs Family Cemetery, as indicated on the memorial page. I appreciate your correction/removal of photo on this page.

Kim, it will not be a good idea for you to add that photo to the original. The person who placed it on my dupe will accuse you of "lifting" the photo and passing it off as your own. I have read about this a lot on the forums. "Don't photo copies" and "Don't post copyrighted photos (meaning photos that you did not take, or were not in your possession from a family album). If the memorials are merged, the photo will remain. If they are merged and you have copied the photo, there will be two copies of the photo.
Having it copied onto your computer, in case it gets "lost" is a good idea. But you should not copy that photo onto your Ancestry tree without getting permission from the "owner" of the photo. Ancestry will remove "lifted" photos if the owner of them complains. So will Find A Grave. So it is better to get permission. If that contributor does not answer a message from you, then rest assured that if a merge is made, the photo will remain.
PS - If you've ever wondered about it, just google "copyright law for photographers" and you will get an education on the subject! I found out a few years about copyright by doing that. I thought that to be copyright, every photo had to be registered in some 'copyright office'. I was wrong. If you take the photo, you own the copyright.

Hello! Yes, I see the dupe problem. I do not know the person who added the photo to Faye's memorial. Maybe he can just add the same photo to the original? And then I can see about having the dupes deleted. The problem is, I have to transfer them back to Chris Mills for deletion, as we cannot delete a memorial that has been transferred. That keeps people from creating dupes and then deleting transferred memorials, which would certainly negate a volunteer's work! But your suggestion of merging will probably take longer. First, I would ask that you please contact the person who added the photo of Faye and see if you get a response. If you don't, let me know, and then please ask the Administrators of this site to merge them. I would hate to lose that photo. Since that contributor only has old messages from 2012 on this page, he may not be active anymore. Let's give it a few days or a week and see what happens. If you want to just ask the administrators to merge the dupes of both Jessie and Faye, I am in agreement that it should be done.
Thank you for your reply. I am looking for information on Henry B Martin who died Dec 31,1865. He was married to a Meeks. There daughter was my daughter's 2x great grandma. Fred Gromadzki
