|Bio and Links|
Find A Grave is now owned by Ancestry.com and it is now considered a genealogy source.
On June 21, 2014, FindaGrave experienced a series of data corruption problems that included 1) many memorials in the system now have incorrect photos attached, 2) there are many links that lead to incorrect memorials, and 3) many memorials are now managed by people other than the original contributor who created them.
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.

|Pittynh||RE: Re: Oliver Freeman|
No problem John. I must confess though that I did not know you had a request in for Oliver. I have been adding names & photos for this cemetery and was surprised when the request fulfilled popped up. I do not recall any other Freeman burials but if I do, I will record them.

I did not know that Joseph's daughter was an actress. I'm glad I was able to get the updated picture for you.I plan on taking a trip to Edgell cemetery to look up some family and noticed you have some requests there. When I go I will look for them.
Thank you for taking your time to photograph the Farrar Headstones.

I'm just glad it worked out. Have a good day.
|B.J. Nelson||RE: Re: Ida Ferrar|
I don't mind bowing out, but I don't want somebody else to claim it before you do. Is there any set time you go online? I can set my schedule to match whatever time you want. Let me know.
|B.J. Nelson||Ida Farra|
I took her photo request but I see you have his. I'm going to be online for a little while. So if you message me and I know you are online I can unclaim her the photo request and let you take it. Let me know.
