I try to verify all EDITS sent to me before accepting. If I can't verify, I'll attempt to contact you before declining. I will decline the edit if I ask for a source and none is sent within two days.
DO NOT SEND EDITS WITH LINKS TO BURIAL UNKNOWN MEMORIALS. I will decline.
I use Familysearch.org for volunteering on Findagrave and no longer have access to images on Ancestry.
Remember a lot of headstones do not have the correct dates - mistakes do happen.
Please remember we are all volunteers here and are all deserving of respect and kindness.
USE THE EDIT TAB when Requesting a transfer, DON'T SEND A MESSAGE!
Tell me how you are related, or through friendship, and be sure to include your contributor #. Sure makes it easier for the transfer to be made. You are already at the memorial and I don't have to go and look it up. THANK YOU! I rarely refuse a transfer request for memorials not in my family tree.
USE THE EDIT TAB FOR:
...incomplete/incorrect dates or spellings, etc?
I'm only human, my fingers don't always hit the right keys, and my eyes don't always catch the errors. Thanks for helping.
You DO need my permission to save to your computer, any pictures of people, families, etc, that I have added to memorials.
**You do not need my permission to use photos of grave markers I have added, as long as you are not going to profit from using them. I have taken these photos so that no matter how much the marker deteriorates, at least they are available in the condition I found them.
In 2014 we visited 11 local cemeteries and took pictures of grave markers. We find we know people in every one of them, and it's like having a visit with old friends.
What a great group of people make up the Findagrave Community.
