The short version: use our photos with credit, we transfer liberally.
Hello All -
We are James Chandler and Mary (Gatch), lifelong residents of Clermont County, Ohio. James has been sorting out the past for over 35 years. His main area of focus is Southwest Ohio. You can reach him at the email in the designated spot at the bottom of this bio. Mary has entered all the Gatch family into Ancestry.com going back to Godfrey Gatch of Baltimore. She can be reached at email@example.com
We don't purposely create duplicates, just let us know via the edit tab and we'll delete them if you point out an earlier one.
As long as a person is not in OUR direct line, we will most likely honor all transfer requests. We are not hung-up on the transfer "rules", and are frankly puzzled by those of you who are. Your name will be forever listed as the "creator" so who cares who "manages" the memorial?
You have our permission to use the photos we post in any way you wish but we ask that you credit us so other researchers can find us if they want follow-up information about the photo or where it was taken. "Photo courtesy of 5chandlers (#47512372) at findagrave" will suffice.
If you post photos and don't share them freely, we would urge you to reconsider. This is findagrave, not the Louvre.
We would like to give a shout out to Clermont County Genealogical Society for their incredible site at www.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~ohclecgs/cemeteries.
Use it as an index, but please don't "borrow" their photos, (findagrave and the CCGS frown on that). There are plenty of us willing to go photograph them for you, just put in a request. Many, many thanks to Pamela Smith and the rest of the volunteers for their work on the CCGS site.
Thanks to all of you out there searching graveyards and posting photos!
A very incomplete list of names we research
