PLEASE NOTE THAT I AM HAVING ISSUES WITH BROADBAND PROVIDER XTRA.CO.NZ AND THEIR CHANGE OVER IN RELATION TO EMAIL SERVERS (EARLY 2017) THAT EVENTUALLY WILL NOT SUPPORT YAHOO. THIS AFFECTS FLICKR ACCOUNTS AND CURRENTLY YAHOO IS NOT ALLOWING TRANSFER OF BROADBAND PARTNERS (IN MY CASE XTRA) TO MOVE TO A YAHOO ADDRESS.

IF I DO NOT ANSWER ANY REPLIES LEFT ON PHOTOS ON THIS FLICKR ACCOUNT IT IS BECAUSE I HAVE BEEN LOCKED OUT AGAIN. THIS HAPPENED RECENTLY AS I AM NO LONGER A CUSTOMER OF XTRA BUT FINALLY MANAGED TO CHANGE MY PASSWORD.

IF NO REPLY, PLEASE CONTACT ME THROUGH MY WEBSITE LINKS BELOW. HOPEFULLY YAHOO/FLICKR AND XTRA WILL MANAGE TO SORT THIS MESS OUT AND THOSE OF US WHO HAVE HAD FLICKR FOR MANY YEARS, [IN MY CASE SINCE 2007, OVER 43,000 IMAGES UPLOADED AND 6.5 MILLION VIEWS :( ]

FLICKR HELP SENDS USERS AROUND IN CIRCLES AND CLEARLY IS NOT WORKING FOR ANYONE.

Firstly I must say i do not take grave photos to offend anyone. I sometimes get messages from people who cannot understand why I find this an interest. It is a very common past time now as genealogy is a popular hobby. I find it especially fascinating as I learn about other people, often long forgotten and pass their stories on where I can.

I am the keeper of stories for my family and realise that so many families die out and people are forgotten from living memory if a little something about them is not 'out there'.

If you find a photo connected to your family and wish it removed please let me know. However, take the time to think about those within your extended family that may not be able to get to the cemetery to visit the grave. It is for this reason also that i take photos.
