Unfortunately, I have found it necessary to add this statement: Please do not send me suggested edits without proper proof of the info that you are providing. Some of the pages I have created were added merely because I had been in a particular cemetery looking for people of interest to me, and I just happened to take pictures of other headstones as well. Upon reviewing my pictures, if I found that a page did not exist for any of the headstones, I will go ahead and create a page. I will do a brief search to find additional info on that person. HOWEVER, it is a bit presumptious when some people expect me to do a full genealogical workup on someone I'm not interested in for my family tree. So please, before chastising me for declining an edit for which you did not provide proper proof, do your homework and just send me a link to your source!

I am most happy and willing to make any edits that are substantiated by proper documentation.

I respectfully request that you not send me transcribed verbatim obituaries to be added to the bio section of any of my memorials, as they list the names of living people, and I am not currently posting obituaries. In most cases, I already have the actual published obituary, as collecting obituaries is one of my pet projects. In the near future, I will be working on getting revised versions of obituaries posted. Thank you!
I was bitten by the genealogy bug 40 years ago, and have been researching ever since. I'm in the process of publishing my first draft of the Neely family history. Just when I think I'm ready to start the printing, I stumble across some more info and delay printing so I can add the new info. Guess I'm just going to have to pick a day and print and get it I can always follow up with a second edition:)

My favorite genealogy pasttime has always been locating out of the way and forgotten cemeteries. While I am more familiar with the Marshall & Wetzel county area in WV, I'm finally learning my way around the Greene Co., PA area I'm always happy to take photo requests in this area!

I am always happy to transfer any of the memorial pages that I have added as long as they are not part of my family tree. Whenever I'm out photographing cemeteries I will add memorials if I see that they have not yet been added to Find A Grave. Occasionally I will also add memorials from info that I stumble across in published obituaries as well. If you find that I have added one of your family members, just use the "Other" option on the "Edit" tab to request a transfer.

I respectfully request that my photos on Find A Grave not be used on other Find A Grave memorial pages, or anywhere else, without my express permission. Thank you!
