I am more than happy to take photos for anyone who needs it done, here in Oklahoma City, Midwest City or Del City. Most times, I will be able to do it right away. I can't make any promises except that I will try my best to get them as quickly as possible. If there are any photos you wish to use, please feel free to do without asking permission.
If there is a memorial you wish to have transferred over to you, please let me know and it will be done. I will need your Findagrave.com number, please.
Also, I will NEVER use these photographs for profit! That is not my intention at any time. I simply wish to use these photos to let others, possibly family or good friends, see what I have found and that I have been able to share this with them.
When I request a photo, regardless of where it may be, please supply the location of it. Not all cemeteries seem to have the same layout or an office or point of contact available and it would be greatly appreciated.
Should my name appear in other places with any of these photographs, other than adding a shared headstone, grave marker, mausoleum or crypt, there will be an annotation with that photograph, about who the original photographer is. I only do things like this to assist others not to take credit away from them.
I have been asking permission from others to use their photos as profile photos on Wikitree family tree and have an overwhelming positive response. THANK YOU ALL FOR THIS!
When I read your profiles here at Findagrave.com and I am able to use your photos without first asking permission, I usually make a statement on the upload page on Wikitree that goes like this: "As of this date, permission to use this photo was given original photographer and Findagrave.com volunteer." I will always include the current date when I find the photo or portrait. I put the name of the person giving permission to use that photo just after the date. This way, credit is given for the photo and the date that I was able to upload it to the site. I only upload photos onto Wikitree, at this time. IF I wish to put them somewhere else, I WILL ask first. It's polite and it helps the original photographers know where I am using their photos. If there is a portrait or a photograph I will present the difference from a grave photo. Most times I will ask permission specifically for that portrait or current photograph of the person I am creating or the profile which has already been created by another Wikitreer, adding it to. If there is a time when I request the use of a photo of a grave marker/headstone/crypt/mausoleum and you say no, that 's fine, too. I will do my best to respect everyone's wishes.
