|Dalice Fadden||RE: Mabel Carr|
Hi Virginia, The death certificate # for Mabel Carr is 49050 of Luzerne County.
I wanted to write you a couple of times and "thank you" for all the work you do on Find-A-Grave. I have found it useful many times and I know others have.
Next, I wanted to discuss the issue about my asking for money to obtain the graveyard pictures. I don't do cemetery work anymore because I can no longer walk. A friend of mine was looking for extra money and I suggested he do it because I saw there were many people who needed photos taken and had their names on the volunteer list for over a year. And, there were several people who were very happy to pay for this service. I don't see any harm in it, but I won't be doing it again. There was a nice person who wrote me and suggested that I make my own website and offer to take pictures. I am going to do it that way.
I have been doing genealogy since 1977, long before home computers. I have helped many people over the years, both for a fee and also doing volunteer work. As a single parent I was able to raise my three children on the money I made. There is nothing wrong with making money from what you love to do.
I have posted over 100,000 items on the Ancestry Boards for the use of others. I still volunteer 1 day a week to index records for Ancestry and 1 day a week to index records for the Mormon Church.
Are you aware that Find-A-Grave is now owned by Ancestry. Ancestry is a commercial website and makes millions of dollars every year on people doing genealogy. Nothing is wrong with that because they are running a business. But, if I want to charge $5.00 for gas to go a round trip of 20 miles to Calvary Cemetery, you find that disagreeable. If people are willing to pay the $5.00 to get their long awaited pictures, how is that hurting you?
|Michael Stanley Klimczak||RE: Request for money for photos|
Thank you for reporting them. I found it utterly disrespectful to the thousands of volunteers on here who work tirelessly to make records available.
|Audrey LeRew||RE: Catherine Eckert obit|
Thank you ever so much
Stay cool my friend
|Dennis Brandt||RE: Lt John Keister|
Glad to help, but I'm afraid the grave was already posted. I supplied the owner with the biography. See Findagrave #39270253.
