Bio

Hi,

Any additional information should be sent using the "Edit" tab and then forwarding through "suggestions".

Military rank should only be used as a prefix if the person is on active duty at the time of death or served at least 20 years.
Please do not ask me to add transcriptions where the info already appears on the memorials via gravestone photos or in the bio section. There is no reason to duplicate the names & dates info. Find A Grave Support has confirmed the transcription field is not meant to include everything written on the stone. They also said "It is up to the originating member what they include as long as you make sure that the names, birth and death dates/years are included in the fields available on the memorial page".

DO NOT SCAN AND ATTACH OBITUARIES LISTING LIVING DESCEDANTS.
" I worked for the Shreveport Times and Gannett Louisiana newspapers almost 40 years, and secured WRITTEN permission from the state publisher to use clips from the paper with proper attribution. WRITTEN permission. Bear in mind that a literal transcription of a newspaper item is JUST as much a copyright infringement as a scan, and lacks the provenance of a scan and introduces the ugly possibility of transcription errors. Plus anything 75 years or older is in the public domain and thus free from copyright.The bottom line: Write the publisher of your local paper and request permission to post limited scans of obituaries and pertinent news stories WITH ATTRIBUTION."
