I love spending an afternoon in a cemetery. The older and more unusual the graves, the better! I have photos or documentation for most of the memorials I have posted. My data are actual readings; I do not upload bulk data. Please feel free to inquire directly if I didn't upload a photo.
Copyright is reserved on all my photos. Written permission is required in advance, including a link to any family tree on any genealogical website.
Memorial transfers granted to immediate family members (parents, sibling, children, grands) upon polite request per site policy with pleasure. Please remember that other family members also have rights and strong feelings about certain memorials.
The actual inscription or the supporting cemetery/death record is the "fact" I use for the purposes of this site. The value of Find-A-Grave is the wonderful and unparalleled access to grave and cemetery records. It is not a genealogical database, a publication forum, or a chance to acquire ownership. The stones, records, and inscriptions may be erroneous, but they are the historical record of the event as it exists and that is the value. I will be glad to correct any mistakes I have made in reading them.
My goal is to provide documentation of as many memorials as possible. I will link family members and update existing memorials with biographical information as time permits. All requests must include legitimate documentation to be considered. Information added to memorials will be credited with your contributor #. ALL REQUESTS TO ADD INFORMATION THAT IS NOT SUPPORTED BY THE STONE OR WITHOUT ADDITIONAL SUPPORTING DATA CONVINCING ME THAT YOU HAVE THE RIGHT INFORMATION PAIRED WITH THE RIGHT PERSON WILL BE DECLINED! Many unintentional genealogical errors are introduced based on great enthusiasm and the best of intentions. Such errors propagate and many can never be fully corrected.
I appreciate everyone who takes the time to make this site so great. Let's go pay it forward! See you at the cemetery!
