Not resolved

I was notified that my childs gravesite was on findagrave. It is.

I nor any other member of my family ever gave permission for photos to be taken. These are close up photos taken from someone standing at the headstone. This is a church graveyard.

Ask for permission, people. You wouldnt get it.

I have found it very helpful that people, volunteers no less, would take their time to go to a cemetery and take pictures of headstones there. This is genealogy people.

Maybe someone is looking for that person. Chill out.

ONLY morbid people with warped minds hang around in cemeteries. You guys all need to seek some serious emotional help!

Chill out? The dead seem to do that just fine.

The people who wish to hang out at cemeteries are usually those that want to pay respect to their loved ones . Your comment is insensitive. I bet you are one of those that dig up graves for fun.

Exploiting information from headstones, and without the consent of family members is not paying respect. It is *** and wrong!

You stalking fools need to get out and stay out of of the cemeteries.

Perhaps worry just a bit more about your own dead! AND Leave the rest alone!


People really have no clue how this stuff works. No one needs to ask permission. Family or not, you do not get to tell others what they can and cannot do on property that does not belong to you.

YA! people can do whatever they want.

BLAH BLAH BLAH! Who needs rules!

We are just another brick in the old graveyard! Leave those graves alone!

People need to show some respect and leave other peoples graves alone . If they are not your family , I agree people have no business nosen around . There is a simple thing to remember, you did not know the deceased and they did not know you so back off !!

to Anonymous #1597767

Did you buy all the grave plots in every cemetery, which also gives you all rights to nose around and tromp around on all family paid for graves and then exploit everyones information ?


is the cemetery open for public visitation (anyone, regardless of relationship)? does it have a "no photographs" policy and signage so visitors know?

i think if the grave is viewable to the public, it can be photographed unless there is signage to make people aware of that rule. otherwise, how would they know?

Perhaps the deceased would also like some respect for their graves.People need to show more empathy for each other. Somethings are sacred to our families.

to NativeAmericans #1580196

The graves are in a place where they can be seen by the public. If you want them private then put then on your own land where you can control the situation.

to Anonymous #1580898

WE are sick of tired of hateful people like you on this fg site, it really brings the site wayyyy down. I agree people need to show more empathy for other people and their that of their beloved dead.

YOU can take all the pictures you want of your own family graves and exploit them on your genealogy malarkey. Not everyone cares for yur fiasco, bad and morbid habits for trampling upon sacred graves!

God knows who you are and what you do! He also knows the hate that boils within your cold heart.

I know for a fact if my deceased grandma could see you hoarders tromping around on our family burial grounds she would say to you to GET OUT AND STAY OUT! You awful people with no manners nor respect for sacred places!

I also say to you losers to get out!

GO Hang out in your own family cemeteries. Good grief!

to Thinking outloud #1610623

"What The" :( ....Since when did graveyards or cemeteries become like grand central station? You might as well have a party and dance on their graves with so much respect.

Good grief! Get off and out of the graveyards if don't have someone buried there.

to Thinking outloud #1610641

There is also this thing called respecting other people's property. If a parent or does not want their child's grave photographed then it should not be photographed.

to Zachary2001 #1611702

Unless you own the cemetery, you don't get to say what people can do there. Even if you do own the cemetery, if the graves are viewable from public property (like the street or sidewalk), anyone on that public property can photograph the graves.

If a photographer gets permission from a neighboring land owner, they can photograph the graves from there. You don't "own" your dead relatives.

to Common Sense #1613300

Rude people who copy information from headstones for a public website are complete low-lives, and they also have no business doing this to others people private memorials. You busy body worms need to learn how to MIND YOUR BUSINESS! and GOOD LESSON to learn in live by.
