REMINDER - Please remain aware of the restrictions on posting our work on commercial sites that has been in effect since the site began in 1996. We are finding many violations of this, whole pages copied and pasted with no source citation or permission.These violations are usually from people who have never bothered to thank us or donate to the site's expenses. We publish it here free and available 24/7 anywhere in the world. There is no advantage to posting it on sites where people have to pay to see our free gift. It separates us from the people we help and diminshes the returns we get in exchange for our own projects. I have already had to curtail publishing many pictures I intended to. They show up without my name on them all over the place. They are not public property. We want to continue to develop this site in a trusting and honest environment without being slave labor to commercial sites. If that is not possible, we will have to find other ways to share our work. Be moral. Restrictions on Use

Survey of Cemeteries in Town of Catlin by Mark Claypool
15 DEC 2012 I have to bring to your attention a very difficult situation and ask your help in resolving it. As you know my volunteers and I have spent sixteen years gathering information for you and publishing it in good faith that the work and the workers would be respected and treated fairly. In the past three/four years or so, our site and many others like it have become victims of people claiming our work as their own and publishing it on findagrave as their own work, with no permission of the producers and no citation of the source. Just in October and November of this year a findagrave submitter copied as many as 150,000 records from our site to his page as his own work. He has about 772,000 records to his name, so our site is not the only one he has raided. He has even commented on his page about the work it is to track down all these lists and links. We have another example of a Tri-Counties volunteer spending a YEAR on one large cemetery. We published it and within a month it was on findagrave under someone else's name. Coincidence? I don't think so. If someone else wants to spend the time and effort to read cemeteries as we have, they can do so, but it is not correct to piggy-back on our work in this massive way.
 I have notified findagrave of these violations and they have ignored my emails and letters. They have a policy of fair use, but they are not enforcing ethical standards within their submitter base. I have never prohibited fair use of our work, but copying thousands of records, whole cemetery listings that we have invested our time, effort and money into producing is way outside the bounds of fair use and there is no way it can be called ethical or respectful to those of us who have done this for the genealogical community. We have other listings ready to publish, but we can not do it in this free-for-all frenzy of take whatever you want and call it your own environment. Until we can instill upon the findagrave administration some semblance of control on their submitters, we are disabled. 
I know that some of you think findagrave is just the greatest thing, but you need to know that even they have to adhere to the same ethics, scholarship, and business etiquette that keep all of us involved in a fair way. One of our guests stumbled on the 772,000 individual and recognized what he had done immediately. He brought him to task on his page and his note was removed right away. This person does not want his followers to know that he is not operating in a reasonable or fair way. He believes he is doing a good thing. He is making himself a superhero on our backs. One of my volunteers said, "I'm out there sweating in the cemetery, and they're thanking him!!" 
We are wounded, we are devastated, and we can't work in this environment until some control is established. You can help by sending an email to info@findagrave.com and to Jim Tipton, founder, at Jim@findagrave.com to let them know that you protest the unethical practices of some of these aggressive harvesters of the work of others. Please also copy me at Joycetice@aol.com so I can see what kind of support we are getting from the hundreds of people who have used and relied on this site for its many years .  I can think of no way to justify putting one's own name on the work of others. I think that only through the court of public opinion can we make the severity of this offense clear to them. They are damaging their own credibility and reputation by not taking action. These violations were not, I believe, what they intended when they gave people a chance to memorialize their relatives.

19 OCT 2014 The following is the first new cemetery list we have published since the massive Findagrave theft of Nov-Dec. 2012 pulled the rug out from under us, totally demoralized me and my volunteers,and left us unable and unwilling to continue developing the site. Treat this with fairness and ethical standards. If you become aware of further thefts of our original work by Rob the robber, or other Findagrave harvesters, please notify us so we can report them to Ancestry.
