I have been interested in family history for over 20 years. In 2006 I became intrigued with visiting and photographing cemeteries.
I had browsed and used Find A Grave many times. However, it wasn't until a couple years ago that I was able to use it to find a missing link in my own family. Now I am truly appreciative of what an awesome tool this is for genealogy researchers.
I appreciate all the time and effort of the staff and fellow memorial and photo contributors. Thank you! What an awesome gift we are sharing with each other. I have no problem with making corrections, additions, or memorial transfers within the guidelines. Memorial transfers outside the scope of the transfer guidelines will be considered on a case by case basis, as I am not opposed to it. PLEASE USE THE MEMORIAL EDIT FEATURE TO SUGGEST A CORRECTION, and I will get to it as soon as I can. Please be patient. Thanks!
FYI-I do not mind sharing photos here at Find A Grave. However, I would hate for the photos I have taken to be copied and placed into incorrect cemeteries. It would be a shame to have this invaluable information be tainted that way. I hope that most people are here for the right reasons, and will think twice about borrowing images, reposting them (incorrectly) elsewhere, or taking sole credit for them. Please respect eachothers hard work in making this site what it is. Thanks!
