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, by claiming copyright and restricting all my images. 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for all the vintage photographs I have posted over the years, they are pretty much all out of copyright or available in outdated books such as yearbooks.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 posted a photograph that you believe is yours, we both have hard copies of the same photo. I have not stolen your photograph.

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

Thank you for your understanding and help.

Be kind to each other.
