NOTE: I got kicked out of my first cemetery today. I have taken more than 50,000 photos in 17 U.S. states and a province of Canada. This is the first time that I have been told to leave a cemetery. It wasn't done by management, it was done by a maintenance person. He called me a few not so nice names and told me I wasn't allowed to take photos and if he saw me in the cemetery again he would call the cops. This guy yelled and got so close to me that I felt threatened. I quickly got into my car and left. He followed me to the car still yelling. I have no idea why he did this. It was more than a bad day for him. I didn't do or say anything to provoke him. I'm 80 years old and he was probably in his early 50s and quite a lot larger than me, so why would I pick a fight with someone like that. After I got home, I called the cemetery office and talked to the manager who told me that I was welcome to come to this cemetery and take photos. She also said she will talk to this person I had a problem with.
Cemetery: Mount Hope Catholic Cemetery, Krafft Road, Port Huron, Michigan.

I'm retired from the U.S. Air Force. I travel often and have photographed cemeteries in Alabama, Arizona, Connecticut, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Maine, Michigan, Mississippi, Montana, New Hampshire, Ohio, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Vermont, Washington State and Ontario. .

PHOTOS
My photos are for your use and my permission to use them is not needed. That does not mean you can post them on a memorial you create.
**********
MEMORIALS
Memorials that I have created are available to be transferred. If you would like a transfer, all you have to do is ask and I'll take care of it immediately.

OBITUARIES, BIOS AND CENSUS INFORMATION
I don't like posting any of these. If you send me an obituary, bio or census information, be patient, I will get to them when I get in the mood. They are not a priority of mine. Please check your grammar, punctuation and spelling as I will not always do it for you. I'll correct normal mistakes if I see them but don't expect me to correct your mistakes on very long entries. I don't have time to look for mistakes. Also, I don't always know what you mean. Other than that, I'm pretty easy to get along with. I did receive this comment along with a 2-page bio: "Please make corrections for sticky keys - further info".
**********
If you send me an obituary or bio information and tell me not to include you as the person providing this information, I will delete your edit. I will not post information that may not be correct and let folks think it's my work.
**********
CONTACT
I received an edit and census info to add to a memorial. No problem but needed to asked requesting contributor a question. When I clicked on their Find A Grave number, I got this message: Contact not available. So, if you don't won't to be contacted, don't send me edits. I deleted this one with no action taken.

If you contact me by email, make sure the words "Find A Grave" is somewhere in the subject line. I get too much junk mail and if I don't recognize anything in the subject line, I delete without opening.
----------
EDITS
There are several contributors who will not except my edits and the edits end up getting auto approved. I assume they are approved by Find A Grave after a certain amount of time. I am making a list of these contributors and will not cooperate with them in any way. I always thought that we are a team and should work with each other. Apparently there are some that don't. I submitted an edit with dates of birth and death and got declined. My information came from this person's obituary in which the person I submitted the edit to posted on the memorial. I resubmitted my edit and this contributor deleted the memorial. That doesn't make any sense to me at all.
