|Bio and Links|
Please, unless you are the legal copyright holder, do not post or ask me to post copyrighted photos (taken from obituaries or other sites) on memorials I've created. Being the legal owner of copyright means that (1) you yourself took the photo;(2) you were given explicit permission in writing from the person who took the photo; or (3) you bought rights to the photo and have the paperwork proving your claim. FindAGrave policy (see their FAQ) prohibits such postings as violations of International Copyright Law. The only exceptions are for excerpts of old obits for which the copyright has expired.|
Regarding birth and death dates, I am from now on posting only dates that are on the gravestone, assuming that is what the deceased or deceased's family intended, so PLEASE DO NOT ASK ME TO POST COMPLETE DATES IF THEY ARE NOT GIVEN ON THE GRAVESTONE. As FindAGrave FAQ states, this is not a genealogy site but a site where gravestones are recorded. Since info regarding a specific birthplace is often used today in security questions, I will no longer post exact birthplaces. Identity theft is a real problem & I don't want to cause anyone the grief of having to sort with that problem.
