I'm a preservationist and historian descended from many generations in Texas.
I was so happy to find some "lost" ancestors through Find A Grave. I joined the Find A Grave community as a volunteer, to help other people find where their ancestors and loved ones are buried, and to see photographs of markers in cemeteries they will never be able to visit personally. So many wonderful, dedicated people have volunteered time and money to make this website a success. I am disappointed it is now owned by a for-profit company, using the time and efforts of numerous volunteers.
Please give credit to the volunteers who have created memorials, and ask permission to use photographs. I will be happy to add information to memorials, with proper documentation, and to transfer memorials, following the guidelines of Find A Grave.
Regrettably, due to recent hateful messages, I have changed my contributor name to an anonymous pseudonym. As a serious researcher, I thank all of you who are kind, generous, and working relentlessly to make Find A Grave an incredible resource.
