I have over 200 years of pictures and historical documents and letters and etc. I have documented family history and found this site.
I found numerous relatives which I have some really neat stuff to post on their memorials for others researching. A user named PAINT has a number of the relatives gravestone pictures. I requested transfer of the memorials so I could embellish them in my own time. Apparently it is OK for people to refuse transfer of direct family members.
Why? I don't know. What does it matter to a person that simply took a picture of a gravestone to transfer the memorial to someone that has the keys to that person's entire life history, photos, letters, awards, etc. The user PAINT was extremely rude, so I made a memorial myself and embellished them with all kinds of stuff.
Findagrave deleted all the information but kept the photos and turned them over to the non-relational person called PAINT (some old *** in Bardstown Kentucky without a life.) I wrote a number of emails to findagrave on their support forum and evryting but never heard anything from anyone. They have NO respect for copyrighted material nor do they have any respect for proven relationships. So now these relatives memorials are sitting there without information AND with incorrect information because for some reason, members of findagrave can't transcribe correctly and they make assumptions about people they have absolutely no idea about! It is the craziest experience I have had besides ancestry people claiming membership in a family that they are completely mistaken about!
Beware of findagrave users and especially one ancestry user, stefanjagoe. Don't trust transcriptions from either site. Look at the gravestone and trust what it says.
Look at the ancestry records and determine proper transcriptions yourself. ALSO, NEVER MAKE YOUR TREES OR MEMORIALS PUBLIC!!!
