Bio

My purpose on this site is to help people. Having said that, I also have put in a lot of work so I would request your consideration about a few things.

1) PHOTOS - Any photos posted by me on this website may be used for your personal, non-commercial use without contacting me as long as I am given credit in the form of "Photo taken by Christopher Baker" in your re-posting or use in your family tree. Bulk copying my photos for use on another site is not allowed and violates my copyright. Also, dropping a "thank you message" on my public wall here is always appreciated. :-)

2) TRANSFERS - Every edit you want to make can be made using the "Edit" menu on the memorial. There is no advantage to "managing" a memorial.

This site is not about collecting memorials that you manage but about providing information to those seeking it.

Some people are on this site just to add their relatives. This is great. But some of us are here to add entire cemeteries so people can find their relatives. It is a lot of work to go thru an entire cemetery and add this data and/or take the photos for 1,000's of markers!

My time is limited and taking time to transfer memorials so someone can have all their distant relatives under their "managed memorials" count is not what this site is about. You can make all the same edits if you "manage" the memorial or not using the "Edit" menu!

Additionally, I can't tell you how many people request the same memorial to be transferred. YOU ARE NOT THE ONLY PERSON RELATED TO A MEMORIAL ON THIS SITE. So now what happens when someone requests the transfer from you?

Or maybe you will refuse to add the information you have if you can't manage it ... I have heard that one too believe it or not. Think about that a while! You are missing the entire point of this site.

Having said this, I also believe in the site's policy of "Family First." I strongly believe that a direct family member (sibling, parent, grand parent), of any generation, deserve to maintain the memorial. Therefore, if you are a DIRECT relative (sibling, parent, grand parent, great-grandparent, etc.) OF ANY GENERATION then I will be happy to transfer management to you. NOTE: Unlike the site policy / FAQ that places other limits like only 4 generations, I don't limit the generations.

Additionally, if you are a large contributor on this site or you upload photos for the memorial including grave marker and you sponsor the memorial, I do take that into consideration.

If it is a cousin, an aunt, an uncle, etc. then please just send a correction and don't ask for a transfer.

I think most people on this site follow a similar policy. I hope you can understand this balance.

IF YOU MEET THIS CRITERIA AND WANT TO REQUEST A TRANSFER, THEN PLEASE SUBMIT YOUR TRANSFER REQUEST USING THE "SUGGEST A CORRECTION" (SEE BELOW) USING THE "BIO" SECTION. INCLUDE YOUR RELATIONSHIP IN THE REQUEST.

3) ALL EDIT/ADDITION REQUESTS - Find the person's memorial you want to suggest a change for and choose the "Edit" in the top right, then choose the item you want to edit under "Suggest a Correction" (birth/death date/location, bio, relatives, etc.) PLEASE DON'T SEND EDIT REQUESTS TO ME HERE!!!!
