I want to say "hello" to everyone that takes the time to sit and do this for the one's that walked this earth with us and before us.. I think it is a wonderful way to spend my time to respect those in my family tree, and others. I can't think of a better tribute to a loved one..thank goodness for this site !
I wanted to touch on a subject I have been hearing volunteers complaining about lately; and I want to voice my opinion on this issue.. I am a Volunteer.. if I go out and take a gravestone photo for someone else and put it on this site; then I consider that picture to be a gift.. just like my time, gas, and energy to go do it is a gift. If the requester of the photo wants to add that picture on their family trees, that's ok with me; as far as I am concerned; that picture does not belong to me; it was a gift.. use it anyway you want to; I don't care; if you want to give Findagrave.com or me credit; that's nice and respectful to do. The bottom line is that I consider this as my time of doing the Lord's work.. and I give it and the photo's freely.. Gail
