Find A Grave is now owned by Ancestry.com and it is now considered a genealogy source.
If you find memorial errors or photos added to the wrong memorials, please help solve these problems by sending edits.
I support the cemeteries in Longmont, Colorado, and have done family history research (both ancestors and descendants) on one of the founders of Longmont, Jarvis Marvin Fox, as well as my own family of Sutherland, Davidson, Corbett, and Fox. My research also takes me into that of my in-laws families including Drummond, McNulty, Tipping, Kehoe, and others. I take grave photos as a hobby.
Regarding gravestone photos, please remember that some of the older gravestones have mineral deposits or vegetation on them, and Find-a-grave volunteers are generally not in a position to clean the stones before photographing them. Cemeteries usually claim responsibility for ground maintenance, but consider gravestones to be family property, and therefore do not maintain the stones.
Older stones with mineral deposits, wear evidence, or grass or lichen growth will sometimes result in photographs in which details of the gravestones are difficult to read. If you have some specific instructions for me regarding your family's gravestone, pass the instructions along when you request the photo. I usually try to clean up minor contamination on a gravestone before taking a photograph.
If you have corrections for a memorial that I have authored, or you wish to be assigned as maintenance for the memorial, simply go to the memorial, click on the edit tab, then select "Suggest a correction or provide additional information" and ask for a transfer or enter information for a correction.
This process makes transfers and updates much easier to implement, and provides an audit history of changes. If you want a transfer, please tell me your relationship (if any) with the person whose maintenance you would like transferred. It is always helpful if you include your FAG member number.
For the record, I consider the FAG guidelines as reasonable, but not mandatory.
For copyright purposes, I grant free non-commercial use of photos I take for Find-a-Grave subscribers.

Sorry I couldn't get a closer, clearer photo, but her niche is on a wall that is about 20 feet tall and my camera couldn't capture a better photo. Chris

Just thought you may want to know that the Monroes aren't in the Monroe plot, they are in the Griffith Plot. I'll be posting the photos shortly.

|Sally (Winegar) Flaherty||Mary Dryer Cole|
Thank you so much for the wonderful bio you sent to me regarding Mary and it now added to her memorial. I also have her adopted Mary Subrandt and Mary Dryer Cole connected.
|Diane Farr Golling||RE: Gladys Calkins|
I always like to have a sense of "where" as well the headstone. It's a very well-maintained cemetery. I'm glad you sent me a message because I needed the reminder!! LOL! I'll call the office and tell you what they say.
|Diane Farr Golling||Gladys Calkins|
I went to the cemetery today and the office was closed, with no hours posted. I looked for the grave for a while but soon realized it was a hopeless task without any information as to the grave's location. I will try again. Meanwhile, I will upload some photos of the cemetery to the cemetery page.
|Bill & Sheila||RE: Re: Pearl L (Fisher) Sloan photos|
Thank you for the information you sent regarding Pearl L Fisher Sloan. I have added the information to her memorial. I also have requested an edit on Richard L Sloan's memorial (# 24742608) to add a link to Pearl and Raymond Sloan as his parents. Thank you for your contributions to Find A Grave.

|Adk_Gen||RE: Lurancy Green|
Sorry, that is census records 1820 and 1830 had only the family of Abial Green in Jay, New York. In 1840 a Liberty Greene appears. He may or may not be a son of Abial. There are a number of Green progeny in this area through the years.

|Adk_Gen||RE: Lurancy Green|
I do not have a lot of information on the Green family of Jay, New York. Birth records in this area were not kept as public record until the late 1800s. The primary sources are church records and family bibles. The only Green in Jay during the census records 1820 and 1840 is Abial Green and his family. Only the head of family's name is listed, so I don't know if this includes Lurancy. There is a good chance that this is her family. In subsequent records, I find Abial's birthplace listed as New Hampshire and Massachusetts; records listing Massachusetts predominate. His wife's name was Abigail; I do not have a surname for her.
