Removing Picture From a Find A Grave Page. #general


Ralph Baer
 

I wish to thank all of the people who responded here or privately to my question of how I could have a picture of my aunt removed from my mother's Find a Grave page https://www.findagrave.com/memorial/77312694/lore-baer.  The most common answer was to ask to have a page transferred to me which I could do since I am a son. However since a couple of people said that would only give me the right to rearrange the pictures, I decided not to go that route. Instead I went through the Find A Grave help function (writing to support@findagrave) and asking to have it removed. Someone named Jacobo has now removed the picture for me.

The picture originated from my aunt's US citizenship application. The page of the application on Family Search with the picture is here https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/3:1:3QS7-99HD-59BK?i=223&cc=2060123 .

For what it's worth, I had success in using "Suggest Edits" to get Find A Grave to do make a substantial change to a memorial I didn't own.

In my opinion it's a simple matter.  You need to take over the site by requesting a transfer of her site from Athanatos https://www.findagrave.com/user/profile/46907585 who is currently maintaining it to yourself and state in the request that you are her son. 

Athanatos says that " transfer requests, and other changes not addressable in the drop-down system, send by "other" SAC. ❤ When requesting a transfer please give a reason for your interest."

After you take ownership of the site you are in charge and I would think you can remove the picture...

Actually, as was pointed out to me in an off-line response, the picture is from my aunt's US citizenship application which is available in Family Search.

Just a note regarding the photo.  This is a typical passport photo with the person's signature and the official seal.  Cannot actually read the lettering though.

You can't remove the photo, but you can add a note in the bio identifying the person in the photo. If you have other photos to add, you can rearrange the order of the photos so that the offending photo no long shows on the front page.

Hello Ralph,

To have the photo removed, click on HELP at the bottom of the memorial where it says MEMORIALS CEMETERIES CONTRIBUTE etc. Then click on HOW CAN I REQUEST TO HAVE SOMETHING REMOVE FROM THE SITE? Follow the directions for:  Memorial or part of a memorial.

State that you are her son and that you want your aunt's photo removed from your mother's memorial, but the woman who uploaded it has not responded to your request.

Hello,
Probably what I say will not help.

There is a contact at the bottom of findagrave page, write or call them.

The terms of service are the photos belong to the
person whom uploaded the photo. (Billion Graves is different).

I had no problem taking down photos I uploaded.

If the person does not take down the photo, is her choice.
The headstone in a publicly accessible cemetery is not
protected by privacy in many countries.

Sorry for the bad news.

This is not strictly a Jewish question. A couple of months ago, a woman named Tina D. added a picture of my aunt to my mother's Find A Grave page https://www.findagrave.com/memorial/77312694/lore-baer. I would like to have the picture removed. I have tried to do that both by going through the editing process and by writing to Tina D. Neither has resulted in anything. Assuming that others agree that the picture does not belong there, is there another way to do this?

I add the following, not really relevant to my question. There is currently no Find A Grave page for my aunt who passed away 22 days prior to my mother and is buried in Beth-El Cemetery in Paramus, NJ. I have no desire to do so. Also, neither of my aunt's children is familiar with the picture which was posted. Her full name as Gertraud Flora Gunzenhauser is written on the picture. Because there is no umlaut on the A in Gunzenhauser, it must be from after she left Germany in 1939, but certainly before she married in 1948, probably closer to the earlier date. The picture appears to have an official seal embossed on it. Interestingly, Tina D. has posted pictures of many people who lived in or near Duisburg, Germany, both Jewish and non-Jewish. My grandmother, that is my mother and my aunt's mother, was born in Ruhrort which is now part of Duisburg.
