I photograph graves for my own genealogy and share photos of other graves. If I don't transfer a Memorial to you it is due to it being in my own line. I will gladly transfer management of any stone I have posted that IS NOT in my own genealogy. I never thought I would have to ask this but:
PLEASE DO NOT CLAIM MY PHOTOS AS YOUR OWN. This is findagraves policy: 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
There is no reason to be rude to someone on here. When I joined findagrave linking was not a part of the website. I struggle with adding / linking without proof of the data I am linking, nor do I want the proof as most of the headstones I have posted are not in my tree. I began posting headstones of graves in an effort to assist others in locating a stone or burial they were either unable to locate or visit on their own and of course preservation of the stone before the information is lost. I never intended to have to manage all of them.
