In reference to photos I add to my memorial pages, you may use such photos but remember to give credit where credit is due and note that you found it on Find A Grave "courtesy of "phil r johnson". On the other hand, you do not have permission to take & re-post my photos from other websites, or those here on Find A Grave, under your name as if you were the photographer. I recognize my own photos.
It's not about "owning", it's about giving another person the credit for their time,expense and effort they went to, in order to collect & post info. for the benefit of those who are searching for their families. My family thanks you.
Ain't this the truth !!
I started out calmly, tracing my tree,
To find if I could find the makings of me.
And all that I had was Great-grandfather's name,
not knowing his wife or from where he came.
I chased him across a long line of states,
And came up with pages and pages of dates.
When all put together, it made me forlorn,
Proved poor Great-grandpa had never been born.
One day I was sure the truth I had found,
Determined to turn this whole thing upside down.
I looked up the record of one Uncle John,
But then I found the old man to be younger than his son.
Then when my hopes were fast growing dim,
I came across records that must have been him.
The facts I collected made me quite sad,
Dear old Great grandfather was never a Dad.
I think someone is pulling my leg,
I am not at all sure I wasn't hatched from an egg.
After hundreds of dollars I've spent on my tree,
I can't help but wonder if I'm really me..
