Please consider as your property any photographs I've taken to fulfill your Find-A-Grave request. I often take extra photos and then generate virtual memorials to post them. I'm happy to transfer management of these upon request. If for any reason you don't like a photo I've taken, tell me why and ask me to do it again! I am a hobby genealogist and volunteer my efforts to this website in order to contribute . . . not to compete.|
I have learned that each Find-a-Grave contributor (or website visitor) can be described as falling on a scale of two extremes. On one end we have The Data People and on the other end are The Memorial People. The Data People see the website as pure data provided to help descendants and family researchers. The Memorial People see each webpage as a tribute and a sacred and solemn online place to visit.
Sometimes the preferences between these contributors clash. For example, the Data People might take thousands of photos (looking down on a marker) in a relatively short time, while the Memorial People take their time and obtain far fewer photographs but with high quality, neat perspectives, and colorful lighting, horizon, or vegetation in the background. The Data People understand that the website visitor wants the information. The Memorial People understand that the website visitor wants to visit the grave site of their loved one without having to drive across the country.
If we keep in mind that both types of contributors are valuable and needed, then we are prepared to prevent a clash when we meet our opposite.
As a volunteer photographer (a contributor), I am a Memorial Person. As a hobby genealogist (a researcher), I am a Data Person when seeking to expand the known boundaries of my family tree.

Thanks for that. Can you believe in all this time NO ONE has ever taken the time to tell me that? I will remember it, can't say I can remove all of them from the thousands of memorials, but I can try?!
Thanks for the heads up on the seconds in the cemetery

Thank you for photographing the grave marker of Jeanette Hillemeyer Meyers. You had sent a correction for her death date, since the grave marker says 1969. I initially accepted the edit, but then visited my genealogy files which contains her obit from 1968. It would seem the grave marker is incorrect. I added her obit to her memorial, with an explanation.

Thank you so much for the photo!

I found 2 photos of a very young James Edward Donaldson. One photo has the date 1904. He looks about 3yrs. Are you connected to this person?
|Michael Hernandez||Find A Grave Memorial# 52477130, Roman Sibilski, Air Corp Veteran|
I am a grandson of a former CBI Air Corps veteran. I'm assembling a data base and website to honor the efforts of the men of the 7th Bomb Group. Mr. Sibilski's name is among over 5,700 that I've compiled over the past nearly four years. I found this memorial and would like to know if you or your family would be interested in sharing copies of any other photos that you might have of Mr. Sibilski that are related to his service in the CBI. I'd also appreciate copies of any of the documents mentioned in your fine remembrance of your Great Uncle. I'd like to add him to the pages of those for whom I've gathered more than general information.
My website is www.dainthecbi.com. I hope that you will consider assisting me with my endeavor, and I look forward to hearing from you.
