Please contact me if you want to add or correct information for one of the deceased I have entered onto "findagrave". I am eager to hear from anyone who has a contribution to any of the sites.
Please let me know if you find any errors or I've duplicated a memorial, I'll fix it! It's so important to have dates correct and names properly spelled - but we all make mistakes, and sometimes the markers are very difficult to read.
I'll gladly transfer management of memorials upon request, no matter what your relation (unless they are my relatives - but I will transfer a relative to a direct descendant if I am not one).
I create every memorial with the hope that their family will find them. Every transfer request I receive tells me that my efforts are worthwhile. Please don't hesitate to contact me. I feel it is important for family members to manage the sites of their relatives and I look forward to hearing from you.
Feel free to use my photos (with credit to me) for your personal genealogical project. My photos are of public places, and of no artistic (I can guarantee that!) merit. I don't believe I "own" a simple snapshot of grave markers. I volunteer here to SHARE and to make sure memorials are as accurate as possible.
I'm not one of those people who think there is a prize for managing the most memorials. If you have any connection to someone that I have created a memorial for, I will gladly transfer it, as long as I am not directly related to the individual.
~A Poem for our Ancestors~
Your tombstone stands among the rest
Neglected and alone
The name and date are chiseled out
On polished marble stone
It reaches out to all who care
It is too late to mourn
You did not know that I exist
You died and I was born
Yet each of us are cells of you
In flesh, in blood and bone
Our blood contracts and beats a pulse
Entirely not our own
Dear Ancestor, the place you filled
One hundred years ago
Spreads out among the ones you left
Who would have loved you so
I wonder if you lived and loved
I wonder if you knew
That someday I would find this spot
And come to visit you
