I will be happy to transfer a memorial to a relative (most of the time, your husband's great aunt may be an issue, or your 6th greatgrandmother who you share with 645 other descendents). I also give you permission to use any photos I take for other geneological purposes, such as posting on ancestry.com, etc. You do not have permission, however, to use it on a duplicate entry that you made.
Just a note on photos: Pictures taken at the National Cemetery were taken during overcast days, which works better with my camera. Also, if you want to see a larger picture, click on the Photos tab at the memorial and you can read the enlarged one.
As another side note about photos, I took many photos straight on and found my reflection in many of them. I had to delete those and retake them. This is true for black, grey and sometimes red stones. That is why I take photos from an angle. Also, the pictures uploaded have to be 750 KB or less (600 x 800), so they are small. I don't clean the stones.
This from FAQs: Can I add an obituary to my interment listing? You should not copy obituary notices from newspapers to an individual's memorial record unless you have permission from the newspaper to do so or you are the author of the obituary. Some obituaries that were published in 1922 or earlier are now in the public domain. In general, obituaries in newspapers are submitted by the family with assistance from the funeral home. If the obituary is added to the memorial record, it should list the newspaper and date the obit was printed for example "Published in the Hattiesburg American, Hattiesburg, Mississippi, Internet Edition, April 11, 2007". Please do not include the names of living or surviving relatives in the biography, unless you have their permission. If you do not have permission to copy an obituary to a memorial, you may put a note stating the name of the newspaper and the date the obituary was published. Please do NOT add photographs from obituary notices (unless you, personally took the photo), as they are protected by copyright law. Find A Grave reserves the right to remove obituary notices and photographs from memorial records. Similarly, you may NOT scan an obituary and add it as a photograph to a memorial record. Obituaries for "famous" individuals are usually written by newspaper staff and can not be posted to Find A Grave as the newspaper company owns that copyright. Please do not include website addresses that may be listed in the obituary as they usually expire within a year after the obituary is printed.
Transfers Thank you Rebecca for the transfers. I will try to update as often as I can. Also thank you for creating these memorials for those of us who do not live close by our family members. It is such a blessing!
I wanted to let you know that I just submitted some edits regarding B. Frank Magee and his wife Ella in Newtown Cemetery. I just wanted to give you a heads up on why some of the info that I submitted is different than what's on the headstone. I found Frank's death certificate on ancestry and it says that he was born June 17th 1854, and the 1900 census also says he was born in June of 1854. His headstone says he was born in 1856, that of course could be an error. I also submitted his full name and and full death date. I also submitted a link to his parents. I also submitted info for his wife Ella and linked her to hear parents as well. Please accept my edits. I double checked the info I found before I submitted it : ) Thanks!! Ben
additional info Hi, I just looked up info on my paternal grandmother, Clover Lippincott Phillips. I noticed that listed under siblings, one is missing, my uncle, Sherman Phillips. I don't know his middle name or date of birth. However, he is still living. He is the youngest child of Clover's and her husband. thank you.
I have submitted some additions to this memorial for my first cousin 2x removed. However, I would be happy to take on the maintenance of this memorial and add any further information I obtain on this family. I am currently doing further research on the whole Kennedy family and make changes almost daily to some of the memorials. If you would rather not, I will still be happy to send any further information to you.
