I enjoy documenting graves so that others can find their loved ones. For every memorial I enter, that's a memorial that has a chance of getting into the right hands of family or friends. I manage more memorials than I have made because other contributors have entrusted them to me. Many thanks to them!!
I urge all contributors to read the guidelines and the 'Frequently Asked Questions' section on the Find A Grave website. It really helps when we are all 'on the same page'.
Helpful hints I have found:
1. The Calif Death Index will never list '1900' as a death date. Something in the program always lists it as '1901'.
2. Veteran's markers - If there is a state listed on the marker, it is where that person enlisted, not necessarily where they were born.
3. Social Security Death Index lists where the last payment was made, not always the death location.
Any and all the photos which I take and post on Find A Grave are free for the taking. I will always allow another person to copy and use the photos for their personal use, posting on ancestry.com or any other genealogy website. I am glad that you found the photo which you needed and are able to use that photo in your family research.
