Continuing how I use the Find-A-Grave website.
This blog post is how I handle those Find-A-Grave Memorials that were created by some one else but I want to add a photograph of the headstone that I took.
Continuing with the example of John Carroll, buried in the Lurvey Cemetery, Hancock, Maine, I will now add a photograph that I took. I will NOT publish, in my Ancestry Member Tree, any headstone photograph taken by some one else.
I have created a Source called Diary or Journal. Use "dia" or "jou" for the Keyword Search for the appropriate template. The Source screen is filled out, and I add, in the Comments for this template:
[ Cemetery Name, City, County, state ] - [ full name ]
That will be copied and pasted into the Citation Details.
Date of Visit: dd mmm yyyy
This also helps when making a number of entries at the same time for a cemetery, where you can copy and paste the information in these two fields for multiple Citations.
On the Media Tab, in the above image, the New menu is used to Link to a New Media file, and selecting the headstone photograph.
The next step is to Copy the Reference Note, and Paste that into the Media File Description field.
The Citation is then linked to the Person. In this case, I link the media file to the Burial Fact and the Find-A-Grave fact.
As shown earlier, the information from the Find-A-Grave website is copied, pasted, and cleaned up for the Find-A-Grave Notes.
