Walter Frederick Morris #50788289
Would you please remove your monument photo from my grandfather's memorial? I was able to secure a much clearer photo so yours is now a duplication and interfers with adding additional photos. Thank you very much. Also, please disregard the previous email regarding Ruth Potter's headstone since that has been taken care of.

Ruth (50788356) and James (50788342) Potter
Ruth and James Potter share a headstone. You posted their headstone photo to James' memorial(50788342) but not to Ruth's (50788356). On June 19 I left a photo request for Ruth's headstone explaining the discrepancy but haven't heard from you. Would you please post your photo to Ruth's headstone?
Thank you. Shirley #48364621

I'm trying find my family on Walter L Millers side. My grandma Mabel told me stories about my grandfathers brother but wasn't sure if you knew anything. Like who bought the plot and if he's the only one buried there. Thanks so much!

RE: Morri s#50788289
Thank you. I understand the process but in the area below the date of death and above the name Morris is an inscription that I can't read, even with a magnifying glass -- that is what I was referring to. I was hoping the wording was more legible in the actual photo so I could post it to the site.
Thanks for your help and thanks for posting the photo on my step-grandfather's grave, William Nelson.

You posted the photo of the shared headstone for William Nelson onto Vina Nelson's memorial page #50788308. Would you post that same shared photo to her husband William? Thanks. Shirley #48364621

Thanks so much for the photos on Vina and James Potter and Walter Morris. Walter and Vina were grandparents I never had because they died so young. It's amazing to actually see Walter's tombstone. Would it be possible to transcribe the writing below the date of death on his stone? I thought maybe the actual photo might give a larger image of the writing. Thanks for your help -- I really had no hope of actually finding any of these three stones when I first started.

Okay, I received transfers of these memorials per Bill Bodkin's advice.
Now, how do I get your photo removed and replaced with one that's legible?

Jim and Tami,

I am a shooter of graves. I go to a cemetery and shoot 5-10 pics a minute. The pictures are then submitted to Find A Grave by my volunteers.
I have about 300 thousand pictures and 75 volunteers,feverishly entering them. But they are constantly losing ground and I am growing my bank of pictures. Yesterday I noticed that you requested a new pic at Union Dale in Pittsburgh (where I take most of my pics).
It was not as clear as you would like it to be.

My suggestion would be to request a transfer of the memorial and then you could manage it.

I tell my volunteers that my pix are for primarily for info and if the pic is not legible not to put it in/ but if its close put it in because it identifies the size and shape of the stone for those looking to get a better picture.

Bill Bodkin

you can see that the two volunteers who entered your memorials had two different takes on the shot.

--So, Jim and Tami, please delete your photo and I'll request another.
Thanks, Allen

Thank you for the photo of his gravestone. I am not related but someone must have told me he wasn't buried there - I won't move a person unless they cannot be found in the cemetery. So thanks again - your efforts are appreciated.
