|Bio and Links|
I'm a retired librarian and a stickler for details. I started taking photos of grave markers after someone was kind enough to take photos of the final resting spots of some of my ancestors. Since then, I have been systematically taking photos of each and every identifiable grave in my area and uploading the photos and information to Find-a-Grave. I like to find the people who slipped through the cracks, who aren't already on Find-a-Grave. I especially enjoy giving other people the same feeling that I got when I first looked upon the grave of my great grandfather. And I feel like I am doing something that is important to future generations. Grave markers don't last forever. If we can capture them now and put the photo on Find-a-Grave, then hopefully they will be available for all posterity.|
As regards the photos I have uploaded to Findagrave.com:
I, the copyright holder of these photos, release them into the public domain. This applies worldwide.
In some countries this may not be legally possible; if so:
I grant anyone the right to use my Findagrave.com photos for any legal purpose, without any conditions, unless such conditions are required by law.

Hey Ruth, Can you turn his photo around ... I have a family member looking at it and noticed.
|David P. Wilson||RE: George Knowles request - Odd Fellows, Smyrna, DE|
Thanks so very, very much for doing the sluething and taking the plot overview picture pertaining to George Knowles' grave location! You're the best!
I apologize for not responding and thanking you sooner, but actually have never, as of yet, received an e-mail (or any other type) notification by Find A Grave that you had left me a message on my Find A Grave home page, so wasn't aware you had/have until a few minutes ago just happening to scroll down there and found your message - which has been there, unknown to me, for days, I see. I haven't been getting any type automatic Find A Grave nofications correspondence in several days about anything else, either, so don't know what the reason may be.
At any rate, I am deeply grateful to you for having investigated about George's grave location, then taking a wonderful picture of the location you were informed of. You're terrific!
Best regards, Dave

I plan on pursuing this lead.
Again, many, many thanks from the bottom of my heart!

Hello Ruth. You are doing such generous work and I want to thank you for your outstanding efforts. When researching Lloyd, it was a happy surprise to see you had added him to this site. Bob
|Russ Pickett||RE: Annie C. Clements Cummins|
Your edits are "never" a problem... :-) The reason they do that, with the photos, is because in the past people have erased other's photos and then put one of their own on .... That is ... Imagine if I went to Odd Fellow's in Smyrna ... took photos that you already took for my records .... erased yours and then put mine in place. That would more than likely "tick you off" ... LOL So I think it's a good thing that they do it that way. :-)
|Russ Pickett||Annie C. Clements Cummins|
Hey Ruth ... I can't delete the photo ... only the person that added it can delete it so you will have to let them know that it needs to be deleted. Sorry. :-)
|C. Walsh||RE: Mark Meyer|
Thank you so very much for transferring Mark's Memorial to me. I appreciate it very much. I will take very good care of my first cousin. His mother is still alive (almost 94) and I will tell her about it. Thank you again!
