❶ PERMISSION TO USE GRAVE MARKER PHOTOGRAPHS
I do not copyright my photographs, therefore I give you permission to use any GRAVE marker photograph as you wish. Please do not take photo's that are NOT of grave markers. Thank you.
❷ ERRORS/EDIT REQUESTS: If I have made any errors on any of the memorials I have created, PLEASE let me know. Some of my sources are not always accurate and therefore I won't be either. I do try to cross reference when able but sometimes things still come out wrong, for this I apologize. I do not intend to pass along erroneous information.
❸ TRANSFER REQUESTS: I have no problem whatsoever with transfer requests and will transfer out of guidelines. That includes distant family members and friends or acquaintances.
Some members are only in it for the numbers and I would rather a memorial be with someone that knew the person or is in their family tree rather than a complete stranger who just wants their memorial count to increase. FIND A GRAVE is NOT a GAME and you aren't going to win anything by having the most memorials, so...to all the memorial hoarders out there I say, "Get over yourselves and grow up ~ this isn't Monopoly".
I will not transfer any of my own family members or friends except upon rare circumstances. All my family members or friends are marked as such on each of their memorials under the Note section as My family member or Personal Friend
❹ Please be courteous when you are requesting edits/transfers or just corresponding. Rude and demanding people will be ignored, nice and courteous people will get their edit requests and transfers fulfilled promptly.
~ DEAR ANCESTOR ~
Your tombstone stands among the rest,
neglected and alone.
The name and date are chiseled out
on polished, marble stone.
It reaches out to all who care;
it is too late to mourn.
You did not know that I exist;
you died, and I was born.
Yet each of us are cells of you,
in flesh, in blood, in bone.
Our blood contracts and beats a pulse
entirely not our own.
Dear Ancestor, the place you filled
so long ago
Spreads out among the ones you left,
who would have loved you so.
I wonder how you lived and loved,
I wonder if you knew
That someday I would find this spot,
And come to visit you.
