Suddenly all my Ancestor's are behind me. "Be Still" they say. "Watch And Listen. You are the result of the Love of Thousands."|
Please do not post cut out obituaries from newspapers in the photo section of my memorials. Death certificates are ok but the obituaries make memorials look bad. Send the obits. I will post to where they belong. I'm slowly taking them off & putting the obit where it belongs. Find A Grave says no obits in the flower/note section. I would think they would agree on this too. Thank you!
Do not post pictures to my memorials without my permission in memorials from Pike or Ross Co. All other counties is fine. If I already have pictures then there's no sense in posting more. I'm having to rearrange photo's I took at Grandview on my memorials because someone rudely posted pictures to them. I will work until every photo has been switched back. I'm sorry for those pictures posted to my memorials at Floral Hills, Chillicothe. I didn't take them. I take more pride in my pictures than that. I will be returning to Floral Hills this Spring to retake. I'm seriously considering contacting Find A Grave. My husband & I have put in four years of long Summer & Winter days taking these pictures at Grandview so those who have family buried there can visit their graves online. I hate the thought of Grandview turning out like Floral Hills has.
Genealogy is my passion. It has been for 38 years. It's been fascinating meeting so many family & friends. I've found we are all searching for the same thing, our roots. Be kind. The attitudes I've encountered on here amaze me. Thank goodness the good override the bad.
I've worked on Mound Cemetery in Pike Co. for many years. I "WILL NOT" transfer MY memorials for this cemetery. It's taken many years and a lot of time to walk this cemetery, documenting each grave with pictures. I will gladly add any edit's to my memorials but I will not transfer. I'm working on biographies for my memorials. My hope is that Mound Cemetery will someday open like a book, as suggested by Find A Grave. This is where my loved ones are at rest and where I will be laid to rest. I will transfer my memorials for any other cemetery as long as they are not of family or friends.
Feel free to use my gravestone photo's. I take them for those whose health prevents them from getting to the cemetery, for those who can't make it because of distance and to preserve history. I won't take pictures if snow is on the ground surrounding the stones. I realize a nice picture on a beautiful clear day is much more favored in the Genealogy world.
Please, before you use the Edit link make sure your info is correct. I've had to change information because of incorrect edits. I don't submit edits unless I've thoroughly researched & know the information to be correct. I don't submit edits much because I work on my own memorials but if they need linked I will submit an edit.
If I've made a duplicate, it wasn't intentional. I'll gladly remove. I'm not perfect but then neither are you. A polite heads up is all that's necessary for me to correct an error.
Don't post obituaries/bio's to flower/note section or correct me there. Send an Edit. I will make the changes. Per Find A Grave, "biographical information and obituaries are not to be included in a virtual flower."
