As of March 2021 I hereby state that any photos I take of headstones and post to Find A Grave are my own property, and they may not be copied or used by others.

Many years ago when I joined Find A Grave I began looking to see if any memorials had been created for members of my family. Someone had created a memorial for my grandmother, but the details were mostly wrong. Her name was Annette, but she was listed as "Ann Lee". She was interred with her second husband. She was linked as the mother of the son that husband had with his first wife. My grandmother's details were mistaken as those for that first wife whose name was Anna. This personal experience has led me to be as careful as possible when I create a memorial. I do lots of research. Most importantly I give close attention to the edits I receive. I ask for supporting records for those edits if I don't have ones myself. I don't do this to be mean, but to be accurate!

A shout out to the Find A Grave members like me that brave cold weather and snow, wet weather, hot weather and bugs to find headstones in cemeteries. Take the time to kneel on the ground, clip overgrown weeds, brush off debris and take photos of the stones. Thank you for doing that!

Per Find A Grave rules I respect the copyright of obituaries and do not copy them word for word into the bio section of my memorials nor do I add the name of living family members, again per Find A Grave rules. If you see an obit in my memorial bio area it is because someone has added it without my knowledge. And Find A Grave advises against gruesome death details in the bio section. Please don't send me suggestions to add such details.

I have been working with two other volunteers to map out the burials of the four cemeteries located in the town of Wilton, New Hampshire. While none are my own family I hope to help other people to locate burials connected with their families. We volunteers are trying to link up the burials from our Wilton cemeteries with other local cemeteries.
