|Bio and Links|
A big "Thank You" goes out to everyone who sends any info and links for the memorials I've added. I regret that I cannot thank each of you individually, although with the new Edit system you now get computer-generated acknowledgements that your suggested changes and/or additions have been accepted. |
I got interested in Family History in 2007, and in 2008 and 2009 visited hundreds of my "dead relatives", as my wife so descriptively put it. (I did meet many live ones, too.) Most of the graves I visited were close relatives of my great-grandparents and a great-great-grandmother: their siblings, aunts and grand-aunts, uncles and grand-uncles, and first and second cousins. Most of them were in Western Pennsylvania and Central Ohio, with a few scattered across Iowa and Nebraska.
Feel free to use any of my grave marker photos any way that you want to, as few (if any) of them have any artistic and/or commercial value which might be covered by the intent of the Copyright clause in the Constitution. (Please note, however, that this only applies to photos with my name under them. For any others, you will need to contact the person who added them for their permission to copy and use elsewhere.)

You submitted a change for Helen Stuart. You have her parents listed as Stuart but, you have her maiden name Lee? Her marker states Stuart. I made the change but didn't understand

I knew that had changed, but wasn't aware of the 1931 rule.

Thank you for adding to Find-a-grave. You have Campbells in St. Mary's. Most of them are my husbands family. I do not want to take them over, but I could give you some info. on them.

|Nancy M. Gandy||Beecher W. Sprague|
Rob, You have Beecher W. Sprague, 93153154, in Saint Marys Cemetery along with his wife Annie E. Corcoran Sprague. Annie was his first wife and he remarried in 1917 and the Glens Falls Cemetery shows he is buried there along with his 2nd wife Bessie. He died quite a few years later. Is there an actual marker there for him?
|Kim S.||RE: more about pictures|
Rob, I must say, you have spent so much time and effort to decline my edit because contained more info than the minimum. It hurts no one to have all the info in one contained field. To reject it outright and to take such pains to write two lengthy replies that sounded so very ... well - oh my! And in it you call me "extremely rude" because I expressed concern about the legibility of the existing headstone photo as basis for my desire to put the full marker transcription in the transcription field. Not everyone who turns to Find a Grave seeking family or friends knows to enlarge the photo, and not everyone has the eyesight to ferret out the info. The FAQs are guidelines, not laws. They are minimums, not maximums. The laws of kindness seem to me to make memorials as user friendly as we volunteers can make them. When I asked about the declining of my edit, I assumed it was an error because the reason for the decline (wrong field) made absolutely no sense to me. Most people feel glad when others can improve their memorials with more or clearer info. Some of my own photos aren't very good because of lighting conditions although I try very hard and spend a great deal of time to make them as clean, straight, contrasting, sharp, legible and attractive as I can. And sometimes another volunteer will add a better photo. I'm glad, and happily take my inferior one down, and we at the cemeteries where I focus all see ourselves as teammates, not adversaries, and we carry no chips. But I know some volunteers get highly offended if someone posts a better photo, so - not knowing you - I didn't do that here, I just submitted the wording accurately, word for word - the inscription in the "marker inscription" field. Sounds appropriate to me! The existing "marker transcription" was not accurate, but had wording alterations, omissions, and many squiggly symbols not in the original. I think you would have had a much better memorial, and way less work, had you just accepted the edit in the spirit it was given - that we are all on a team to present the fallen as best and most honorably as we can. Teammates - still with no "i".
