Recently I found pictures on FindAGrave.com of Jabez Burns'(1801-1876) gravestone, as well as a picture of the entrance to the Paddington Old Cemetery in London. I am currently researching and writing about my Burns-McPherson family and I would like to use these pictures, both on this RootsNLeaves blog as well as the book I am researching and writing. I had written the person who posted the pictures for permission to use the pictures. However,it has been over three weeks and I have had no response.
My question: Are the pictures on FindAGrave.com open for public use? Is it OK to just cite the web page as well as the creator of the pictures, even though I do not have permission to use the pictures? It seems that this is a normal courtesy gesture.
If any one can give me some guidance in this area, I would be most appreciative?
