Photos that are tied to Find a Grave
My job Background is centered around Information Technology and Information Assurance. My question is centered how does The Find A Grave website help secure information. By providing all the information that you do, do you think that it stops people from coming to the cemeteries and researching for themselves? Or because all of the information is on the Internet, families stop talking about history because now it's just not that important, because it is had the click of a button? My real question is centered around the photos, how does Find A Grave protect against infringing on Copyright laws and the owner of the original Photo. Maybe the original photo owner doesn't want the photo published on the Internet where it becomes Public Domain. Any thoughts on the subject would be well appreciated.

Thanks Dave Solomon

Hello! I was wondering if you would allow me to attach (with appropriate credit given) your headstone photo from this memorial to my tree on Ancestry?

Thanks for considering my request. :)

Nevada State Hospital Cemetery
You sent me a picture of the stone for my Ggrandmothers grave a few years back and I totally appreciated it. You are an angel.

We just took the 2000 mile trip from WA State to Missouri to put flowers on her grave and you cannot believe the conditions of that cemetery.
It is a total weed field of 2 feet tall or taller in places, we were afraid to even walk but saw no stones or markers. It is a disgrace and shows no respect for the dead. We were traveling by RV and went to the office and got the key to go inside the cemetery but, no need the fence was down in places and I am so disappointed in whoever is suppose to take care of it. The lady didn't know anything or if anyone takes care of it. She had never actually seen it but it was only a few blocks away. Shame of Missouri ....My G-grandma deserves way better than this. Do you have any ideas on this matter?
Thank you, Carol

Fulton C. RODMAN. You have posted the wrong gravestone on this memorial. Would you check this? Thank you, Sandy

RE: Naomi E. Slack
Thanks, Naomi. I actually clicked on the photo, but then enlarged it and totally overlooked the caption. Silly of me. Thanks for responding. At least I now know that this is not the Naomi I'm looking for.

Naomi E. Slack
Hello! I note that you posted a photo of two stones, side by side, on the memorial for Naomi E. Slack (, who is buried in Oxford Cemtery,Oxford, Sumner County, Kansas. Do you happen to know who is buried in the second grave? I can't read it on the photo. I'm looking for the death and burial place of a Naomi Slack about this time--but I wasn't expecting to find her in Kansas. I was hoping that the name of the person next to her might be helpful in determining whether or not this is "my" Naomi. (I've also sent a note to the creator of her memorial.)
Thanks for any help you can offer!

Mary Johnson Johnson is my great grandmother. Her husband is William Elliott Johnson. I had not seen a photo of her headstone until I found yours.
Thank you for your contribution.

Thanks for posting the photo of William Cullumber's grave marker. His wife, Ruby, was cousin of my wife's great grandmother.
