Dear Volunteers, Thank you for all your dedication!

Thoughts on claiming copyright for grave photos: Firstly, a beloved family member designed the monument and they paid for it. A skilled stone craftsman tenderly engraved it. Possibly a caretaker has perpetually tended (or tends) to it over the years. A photographer carefully took the pic and maybe edited it, researched, and shared it here for all to remember. ❤ Somebody else pays for this website to host all this information.
How can a photo volunteer claim a copyright to a grave pic when so many people are involed?
For many descendants of the deceased, this single grave photo may be the last piece of visual rememberance left of a special and long lost loved family member. Maybe my great grandfather agonized over how to design his father's tombstone or pick a special burial location! Personally, that grave pic of my family member's grave means more to me than it does to the photographer.
Our Find A Grave photos should be added here (F.A.G.) with the HOPE they are discovered and shared by a loved one, and yes, to add in anywhere they feel is meaningful. Every researcher knows the photo probably came from a F.A.G. Volunteer. Please consider credit if you share, everyone can verify photos by going to F.A.G.
I see the act of placing grave photos here a meaningful gesture to family. I hope I helped someone. As a Volunteer, seeing that a family member has added a tombstone pic online is an HONOR to me as a photographer who often times found a lost love one's unknown burial location, perhaps unearthed a lost marker beneath sod or weeds, braved the unpredictable elements of nature, or maybe done extra research. Oh, and lost my phone in a cemetery!
Thank you to all Volunteers! Someday I will be under one of those monuments and I want my family to be able to use my tombstone pic as they wish❤
