Find a Grave ID


I'm currently driving around the country, pulling over sometimes when I see a cemetery (when I have phone service) and taking photos for Find a Grave. I'm not stopping at every cemetery but completed my goal of getting at least one photo request in each of the lower 48 state.

If I Claimed a request, I probably already have the photo in my phone but not the bandwidth to upload from the cemetery. But I MIGHT have updated the GPS coordinates for the marker from the cemetery--but don't be surprised at the number of times I forget to use this feature--Then it takes me days to find wifi and upload them because I'd rather be driving around than uploading photos :-)

If the two week time frame has passed and I have not uploaded the photo, send me a message with as much info as possible and I'll go check my camera.

Photo credit and a link to the FG Memorial is always nice when you use my photos elsewhere....YES, you may use my photos on your other family tree sites and personal family trees, but at the very least, link to the findagrave MEMORIAL.

I no longer accept your edits without adding a note--including your screen name and FG Member number--telling where the info came from (in the bio.)

IF the memorial is of a relative of mine, I fully expect you to source your work in detail, if my family tree does not reflect the same info, those edits will be ignored until you can provide the info. If no verification arrives, the edit will be deleted.
