Bio Photo FindaGrave Notes:

Find A Grave is now owned by 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 have done family history research (both ancestors and descendants) on 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.

photo request for Lois Hamlin
Many thanks for your headstone photography. I know what's involved in traveling to the cemetery, finding the plots, sometimes cleaning the headstones, taking the pictures, and uploading them; all for a perfect stranger. I really appreciate your efforts.
Thanks and best regards, Karl Hamlin

This is so late; I am so very sorry, but thank you so very much for the photo of Mr. Conrado's headstone! It is rather perfect. I know how time consuming this trooping out to the cemeteries, trying to track down the grave, etc., can be, so your time, energy, and willingness to do all this for total strangers is greatly appreciated.

Again, thanks! Belated tho it is.

RE: grave picture
Thank-you John for confirming that. I looked at the cemetery record and it had Bessie Doris with the same dates as your picture showed. Only thing I think is incorrect is who the cemetery record shows as her parents. her father would have been 10 and mother born same year. So I checked census records and who they have as her father is actually her brother. thanks again.
