Feel free to use any of the photographs and information I have provided on FindAGrave. Credit is sweet, but really not necessary. I do not own the deceased or the cemeteries that I frequent. I would never limit access or usage of any of my images or information, especially of someone's loved one, over the ridiculous idea of copyright ownership. It's a headstone. You pointed a camera at it and snapped an image. You did not create art! If anyone is going to claim ownership, I think the family who paid for the stone, or even the stonemason, might have something to say about that. Get over yourself.

As for all the vintage photographs I have posted over the years, they are pretty much all out of copyright or available in outdated books such as yearbooks. You may use them on Ancestry.com, other FindAGrave memorials, or any other personal use you may have for them.

If I have made a mistake (it occasionally happens, don't get your knickers in a twist!), or you would like me to add additional information to a memorial, I will be more than happy to update it for you. I am also happy to transfer memorials to family members or friends.

Thank you for your understanding and help.

Be kind to each other.
