Common sense and courtesy 'tips the scale' that a person should ask permission to reuse another person's work and you should include a credit by-line if that work is not YOUR original creation! Thank you Robertt John Chudek for letting me use this from your Bio.
I am happy to transfer people not related but please do not ask me to transfer everyone in a cemetery because you want control or everyone who is related to you. Please state relationship.
I only add information when you send it through the edit in the upper right hand corner of the memorial.
A love for family history started when my 6th grade teacher asked us to make a family tree.
I talked to my grandparents and wrote letters.
Then one of my Great Aunt's decided to do a book on her side of the family. This ended up in 4 books.
An Aunt and I decided to go visit cemetery's and look into old records. It has been fun to get more pieces of the puzzle.
Pictures are so much more fun than just names. Thank you to those of you who have added pictures and stories.
Several years ago when my younger sister than about age 10 went with me to the old Tinkham cemetery in Indiana and she said,"Doesn't anyone love these people anymore." No one they knew was living, we were their closest relatives.
Thank you to all of you who have worked so hard and gathered so much information. Thank you for the many corrections and additions.
Thank you to the many wonderful volunteers. There will always be the few where everything is "all about me" .
Pictures are all copyrighted and are from the family collection. You may use them but please list source.

My Great Aunt joined LDS and sent them extensive information from papers left to her in her families records. My father got interested in 1977, about 3 years after my Aunt joined the Mormons. Dad insisted that he needed at least two documented citations before he would enter things in out family tree. Only 25% of what he received from Aunt Della was verifiable by Dad standards. He would only use LDS data if he had 2 other citations verifying it. Mind you, the information can be useful in pointing to a line of study that needs to be checked out. He also received a request for information about his father's parents and their descendants from Roy Dean Barnard of VA. Dad said he sent only about his father and two brothers who served together in the Spanish/American War. He had more but would only send it after he received something from Mr. Barnard. About 6 weeks later, an envelop with about 300 single spaced pages arrived. We think there are 8000 names. There are detailed accounts of the migrations of 12 families. There are, however, no source citations. I've taken about 500 names, so far, from this book. In the 30 years or so, I've never found a problem. I use this book as secondary data but I only need one other source to use it. My 8 times grandfather is Col. George Eskridge. He was the guardian to Mary Ball. In 1731 she married Augustine Washington at Sandy Point Plantation. This was 12000 acres of Tobacco and Slaves owned by Col George. In 1732, it is said that Mary named her first born after her beloved guardian. There is a diary entry dated then that places the First President of the United States, at his Christening, in the arms of Col. George Eskridge.
I don't know if you use a service to hold your family tree. I use My Heritage, Ancestry.com is too expensive for me. They have an off line program, called Family Tree Builder, that has tools that can root out inconsistencies. I've found 17 different things it checks for (that I've seen so far, there could be more). Things like: Mother born after Son. Person alive at 275 years old. Husband 65 years older than wife. I've been on sites that had a woman with 25 children, no twins, and only lived 30 years. I found one site where Henry VIII had 345 members of his immediate family. That's parents, wives and children only. Henry VIII had six wives and 3 children by them. One, Henry Fitzroy, by Lady Blount that he acknowledged. Now Brigham Young has links to 81 people in his immediate family, but he had almost 30 wives and almost 60 kids.(Find a Grave.com 1137, 1 1/2 screens of Bio and 2 1/2 screens of Family Links.) I'm talkin' a big family.
Good luck in your pursuit of the 60,000,000,000 piece jigsaw puzzle we call Genealogy.

|Andrew Daft||RE: Thank you|
The Find A Grave email system has had issues in the past with duplicate emails being sent out for one correction, perhaps those problems are continuing. I sent you exactly 20 deletion requests, all in the morning. I was not online last night and did not send you anything at that time. As the guidelines state, each contributor is allowed to sent 20 edit requests to another contributor per week and then that contributor is allowed 30 days to make the requested changes. I requested that a copy of each email I sent also be sent to myself and I only received 20 emails. I am sorry you have received extra emails. This is in no way a reflection on you, but in nearly every past instance where a contributor has told me they would delete their duplicates later they have failed to follow through. For this reason, I prefer to have a "paper trail," as it were.
