Bio and Links
Bio Photo Please read before sending corrections:

I'd very much prefer to transfer a memorial to someone who is researching the person listed than make corrections. Even if you are only distantly related or not related at all. If you know more, you are a better person to manage it than I am. (I do keep management of memorials for my own relatives rather than transfer those to well-meaning non-family members.)

Per Find a Grave guidelines, I do not add obituaries to biographies. Please send citation information (e.g., name of publication, publication date, page number, etc.) instead.

For memorials that I manage, I prefer to have searches for the information on the headstone be able to bring up the memorial. For instance, if the stone says Ethel Jones, I will keep the name listed as Ethel Jones. If Ethel's legal name was Gladys Ethel Jones, I will note that in the biography.

Please use the Suggest any other correction or addition link on the Edit tab of a memorial to request transfer of that memorial.


Feel free to use my photos under the terms of the Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike license. That means you can use them without asking me so long as you credit me, you don't sell them, and if you make something based off my photos, you must also let people use *that* on these terms. If you do not include attribution when you use or repost my photos, I will send a take-down notice. I don't ask for much. Please just include it so I don't have to be a bad guy.

I license my photos this way for two reasons. I want people to be able to use them. And I want credit so that down the road if someone has questions (e.g., "Were there any any infant graves nearby?"), they can ultimately track me down. Proper sourcing is vital for quality genealogy.

All my photos are also available on Flickr in higher resolution, as Find a Grave limits photo sizes.

Philip, just letting you know I will be going thru the cemetery memorials and updating information where I can using the BC Vital Statistics site and their birth, marriage and death information. You've done a great job putting them into Find A Grave and the photos to match.

Thank you for transferring the memorial for Cecelia Paulis to me. She was the adoptive mother of my father-in-law, Stanley F.( Lapczynski) Paulis. Could you also transfer the memorial for Leo D. Paulis (#88151158) to me? Thank you for your dedication to Find-A-Grave.

The picture of Margaret Burns tombstone that you took is also the tombstone for my great grandfather John Burns. The lettering is on the opposite side of the stone. I made the same omission when I was in Clarion in 2004. I wrote the church and asked where John's tombstone was and they sent me a picture with the caption that it was on the opposite side of Margaret's tombstone. I can send you the picture if you like.

I think my dad is related to you in some way. I was researching his family tree and found his dad Ligouri Darby was the Great Grand son of Patrick and Mary Parker. Do you think that it is the same Mary Parker you are related to?

Can I get permission to use the headstone photo you have listed on Thomas A Nodine's memorial for my tree please. I always add who added the photo along with the date added and the memorial number.
