TJOTM is a husband/wife team.
T of TJOTM:
I am not here for numbers, just want to make sure that My family is memorialized at Find A Grave.
I will assist in any way possible within FAG guidelines, but KNOW THIS: I will not transfer
Parkers, Wrenchs, Jacksons, or Tews. These are my family!
As per Find a Grave rules: Transfer requests should be for direct relatives within four generations. This would be your siblings, parents, grandparents, great-grandparents, children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. Please state your relationship when requesting a transfer.
For you picture takers, directly quoted from the Findagrave FAQ's...
Please do not add photos to Find A Grave that you have acquired from another source. THIS INCLUDES ANCESTRY.COM. There are those out there that access public trees at Ancestry, gather information and create memorials. My attitude is: If you want the memorial, take a photo, research and then add the memorial. I totally disagree with those that sit at a keyboard making long lists consisting of no more than Name, Date of Birth and Date of Death. Photos fall under copyright protection laws, even photographs used in obituaries. In general, IF YOU DID NOT TAKE THE PHOTO YOURSELF, YOU SHOULD NOT POST IT! The only exceptions to this are photos that are old enough to have fallen into the public domain and photos for which you have received written consent from the copyright holder.
Requests for use of MY Photographs will be considered on a case by case basis. I have NOT
used Nor will I ever use photographs other than
Request that no death certificates be placed on the memorials that I manage. I also request to all who create memorials to take 5 extra seconds and click "Photo Request" I personally think that this should be mandatory.
Please use the "Suggest a correction" feature to submit corrections, an original biography, and family links to memorials. Make sure to include the memorial ID#s for the family links and how they are related, father, mother or spouse. I will be happy to make corrections, provided the information is accurate.
