Yes, it is a wonderful site. However, I as well as other Find A Grave contributors have stopped contributing for ONE reason: family tree owners "lifting" photos (copying the photo from Find A Grave and uploading to their Ancestry family tree) without nary a second thought. And let's be straight about this: "lifting" is a euphemism to make people feel better. It is STEALING, plain and simple.
