Hi! When I discovered Find-A-Grave, I thought it was fantastic! What a great way to preserve history and help other genealogists! I immediately began photographing local cemeteries as a way to give back to others who have helped me and shared information. I love doing it and feel like I am contributing to preserving some of these really old headstones before they become so weathered and decayed that they are illegible. To each their own, but I do not believe I "own" the photographs I take nor do I feel I have a copyright on them! I just don't get that philosophy, but, like I said, everyone has their own thoughts on why they contribute to FAG. I do not volunteer to do this for "credit" in any form—I am doing it to help other genealogists as they search for their ancestor's final resting places. It is always absolutely fine with me if you use any and all photos I have taken for your ancestry.com trees or personal family trees and you do not need to give any credits to me. It has always been my idea that if we, as genealogists, do not share our discoveries and work as one big family, we are just making it harder to complete our own personal history books. As far as transfers, if you are a relative of any degree or just someone "special" to the deceased, I will gladly transfer unless they are also my own relative. I love everything historical and Find-A-Grave is a wonderful gift to us wanting to preserve history. Happy hunting! --Vickie
Almira Leroy Vickie, Thank you for all your work you have done. Without your input, there would have been a lot of family gaps in our family tree.
I do have a question I'm hoping you can help me with on Almira Leroy #101094190. I have her husband as James Henry Leroy #20775558 but I'm finding there may be two people with the same name "Almira" or "Elmira" (maiden name is Woolman). Do you have a birth certificate, death certificate, or marriage certificate where I can get any more info such as birth date, death date, parent's name, marriage date, etc?
The info our family has is Elmira was born in 1850 in Michigan and died before 1862.
