Hi just an update here . . . . . . Since my kids have grown and moved out I have started working again. So, please be patient with edits and changes since I work over 45 hours a week. I will get to them as I can and I do thank everyone for the help with the memorials and making them better. Thanks@!
Since 2009 I have been working on preserving the Greenwood Cemetery.
I have been going through the cemetery stone by stone trying to physically place all the graves. I'm also trying to add names to the stones that are unreadable, which is very very hard! Sometimes I find a stone which just says mother or father even
I have been going through obituaries, church records, cemetery books, county birth records, funeral home records, and death records just trying to make sure every one is found and taken care of.
The Greenwood cemetery is done. There maybe the occasional found ancestor in the obits or death certs, but all the photos (Except for recent burials like 2013 to 2018) have been taken of every stone I could find.
1) I am now asking for verification for any sac's sent to me. Unfortunately there have been to many people who have sent me sac's over one memorial and they are contradictory. Then the people get angry with me over information in the memorial. So please send verification for your edits or they won't be approved.
2) If you are within the FAG guidelines I will GLADLY transfer too.
3) FAG Rules Regarding Submitting Information / Creating Memorials
Can I add an obituary to my interment listing?
Please do NOT add photographs from obituary notices (unless you, personally took the photo), as they are protected by copyright law. Find A Grave reserves the right to remove obituary notices and photographs from memorial records. Similarly, you may NOT scan an obituary and add it as a photograph to a memorial record.
4) FAG Rules regarding duplicates:
** If you find a memorial has been added but has incomplete or incorrect information, instead of creating a duplicate memorial you should use the tools provided to submit corrections, additions or a transfer request via the "Suggest A Correction" link under the 'Edit' tab on the upper right of the memorial. YOU SHOULD NEVER DELIBERATELY CREATE A DUPLICATE MEMORIAL.
5) FAG guidelines regarding photos:
** Not obtaining permission before using others photos is a violation of copyright law and is against Find A Grave policy.
I found a photo of a relative on Find A Grave, can I use it?
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.
"I don't want to submit my information and then see it for sale here or on another site. Will Find A Grave always remain a free site?
Find A Grave has been around for over ten years. Our stated goal has always been to remain a free site for everyone. We have no plans on changing that. Additionally, we claim no copyright or 'ownership' of any photos that are posted to Find A Grave. THEY REMAIN YOUR PROPERTY. If we were to turn evil and start charging people to view YOUR photos against your wishes, you would have every LEGAL RIGHT to demand that we remove them. But we're not planning on turning evil, so it shouldn't be an issue."
Please Do not copy, or post to any website,(Ex. Ancestry.com, Heritage.com, and such) any of the pictures that I've added to Find-a-Grave Memorials without getting my permission first thank you.
