Find a Grave has been a great resource for freely sharing information among researchers. I am rather concerned that will figure out a way to screw it all up like they have with RootsWeb. I would like to think that they learned their lesson from all the negative publicity they received in that earlier takeover, but they are so focused on the Almighty Dollar that it's hard to predict -- sometimes their corporate greed overwhelms both their common sense and common decency. If they begin to charge or otherwise restrict access (mandatory registration or tracking cookies) in order to view the photos and data that have been freely donated by millions of volunteers, I know that I will immediately delete any of the items that I still have control over.

Updated 3/14/2018: I am extremely disappointed and frustrated by the new format and administrative changes which have been instituted under the guise of "improvements". In my statement above, I promised to remove my contributions if the capitalists made these kinds of changes, but upon reflection I have concluded that would only punish other researchers and the capitalists really don't care anyway -- it's all about the Buck. Or the Millions of Bucks.

You may freely use any of the grave photos which I have taken for any legal purpose. The other items (personal photos, obits and other documents) may have copyright restrictions of which I am unaware, so use your own best judgement on those.
