Peaceful be thy silent slumber,
Peaceful be thy grave so low;
Thou no more will join our number,
Thou no more our sorrows know

" History unravels slowly, like an old sweater. It has been patched and darned many times, reknitted to suit other people, shoved in a box under the sink of censorship to be cut up for the dusters of propaganda, yet it always -
eventually- manages to spring back into its old familiar shape. History has a habit of changing the people who think they are changing IT. History always has a few tricks up its frayed sleeve. It's been around a long time."
PLEASE HAVE PATIENCE-
Do not add photos or images of articles taken from funeral homes or newspapers.
Do not add death certificate images.
If you will refrain from that practice,
there would be room for pictures of the Dear Departed, the stone, or the home.
If you might like a portion of the obituary or other information to be included, it should be typed and sent by "Other Suggestions", include the source of the information along with your preferred name or number, to be credited with the contribution - allowing readers some way to source what they might copy from the website.
The original website discouraged adding images that were not photos in the photo section. It also discouraged additions of Unknown Burials just to add more linked memorials. It is next to impossible to keep them from being added and linked to any you maintain by those who continue to repeat. Also, there are now limits on the number of letters within the Edits, Flowers, and Caption boxes for the Virtual Cemeteries - if you try to add anything, it deletes what you had previously. I apologize for not being able to correct any of that.
A word about images added as Photo Requests:
A Find a Grave photo request is meant for photos
OF THE STONE OR OTHER IMAGE OF THE PLOT.
It is not meant for adding other things. You should not "claim" the request to upload an image of the person, especially one that does not have the source of it included. Not only is it a disappointment to receive the message of a fulfillment only to find an undocumented image of someone ; time must be taken to re-enter the original request. This is happening more frequently of late.
