Ancestry.com LLC Acquires Find A Grave, Inc.

What's your take on this?    I know for me, I will be rethinking my cemetery research and my photo's of the cemeteries I put up.

You have to wonder about all the copyrights in regard to obits, and photo's.   Will they be willing to pay the photographers for permission to use their photos?   

I am actually not happy about this at all personally...I see FAG going downhill with Ancestry in charge.  :(
PROVO, Utah, Sept. 30, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Ancestry.com LLC announced today it has acquired Find A Grave, Inc., the leading online cemetery database. With over 100 million memorials and 75 million photos, Find A Grave has amassed an unparalleled collection of burial information.

I agree 100% on the improvements needed +Leslie Lawson !  My worry is simply it will become limited access...It seems to happen with many of the things they obtained in the past other than Rootsweb.   With them already providing links to FAG,  one has to wonder what their ultimate goal actually is.    

I hope so also +Katie Chapman !

I have to admit this is a pet peeve of mine when looking at clients tree's that have added information from just a transcription.

Transcriptions are minimal, and only as good as the persons eyes who transcribed the information.   It's important to try and find the original and see if there is added information that may actually prove or disprove the Ancestors information.

I know for me, there have been many times, when after looking at the original, we find that the record does not in fact belong to the Ancestor we are looking for.  :)
 
Why is it important to see the original document, and not a transcription? Look at what I would have missed if I didn't see all the margin notes on this one document!
This is a short post about looking at the original documents when you are researching your family tree.  If you cannot get to the actual document, a scanned image will be second best.  This is why. Here is the Town Clerk's Re...

This is a GREAT read for anyone looking for lost Ancestor Burial's in New York City!!!

What this lady is doing for Hart Island is long overdue and the more awareness she gets going for her project the more people will benefit.

"Hunt got involved with Hart during the 1980s, when the AIDS epidemic put the island into the public spotlight for the first time (the first New York child to die of the virus is buried here in the only individual grave on the island). Her book about the island was published in 1998, and represents the last time an artist was allowed to work on-site. Since then, Hunt has single-handedly acted as the sole legal and political advocate for families of the deceased buried here, and in the process, become the foremost historian and keeper of knowledge about the island."
It’s a place where few living New Yorkers have ever set foot, but nearly a million dead ones reside: Hart Island, the United States’ largest mass grave, which has been closed to the public for 35 years. It is difficult to visit and off-limits to photographers. But that may be about to change, as a debate roils over the city’s treatment of the unclaimed dead. Never heard of Hart? You’re not alone--and that’s part of the problem.

It sounds like a bloody brilliant idea - something worthy o' everyone's involvement...as stated in the App info; someone out there lives next to the cemetery I need. And who knows, maybe the cemetery they need to search through is the one in my home town.
