I come to Find-A-Grave to find my relatives and to link them together, and to remember my loved ones. The whole process of finding your relatives and making sure you have correct updated information is my main goal.
I've noticed that on Find-A-Grave there are some very selfish people who monopolize thousands of graves-and these are the people who are not even related to the people whose memorials they've created. How can they maintain these memorials when they have thousands of memorials? They can't, but they won't let you (the family member) either. This is not everyone but the people who do this know who they are, and they ruin it for everyone else who is related to those thousands of people whose memorials they keep hostage. Can we not rise above our ego? I call upon anyone who reads this bio to repentance. If you have been the cause of pain to any ONE of God's children by being quick to offend or be offended or your lack of sharing then repent and start anew your attitude. How do you think all our g-grandfathers and g-grandmothers would feel about this sort of behavior. It would simply not fly! We are adults, let us act like adults. Enough about this.
I am thankful to all who went before me and sacrificed for me to be here in America where any dream I dream is possible-if it be God's will. I will always honor them and do whatever I can to let the world know about them and their legacy.
Anyone can use or copy any photo I have taken...PHOTOS OF MEMORIALS: Increasingly cemeteries are banning the photo taking of memorials. This is against the law! The information on any memorial is PUBLIC information and you have the right to take a photo of it. Go to http://www.genealogyblog.com/?p=2089 for some legal explanations.
Thanks for taking the time to read this! :)
