Law School Graduate & Record Collector. Just picked up the genealogy habit in 2008.|
I enjoy going out on photo treasure hunts, but I focus most of my efforts on capturing "endangered" stones, namely older stones and stones in abandoned cemeteries. I'll also swing by the National cemetery because stuff is so easy to find there...
In respect for others' expectations of privacy, I have decided no longer to post photographs of stones of people who died in my lifetime (after 1980), unless I have the permission of the plot owner. Where the proprietors of a cemetery forbid me from taking photos for find-a-grave, I will respect those wishes.
Since February 2011, I've been taking photos using the Samsung CL65. This camera includes a GPS that automatically geotags images. The accuracy of the GPS coordinates I post is limited by the accuracy of the GPS in that camera.
Presently, I release the photos I post here under a Creative Commons share-alike license. This means that you may use them any way you like, as long as you release any works derived from the images under a compatible license. See: Creative Commons Attribution-Share Alike 3.0 United States License.
I say all this jazz about licenses because I have already spoke to people on here who have published books about their families and who have done extensive research on entire civil war infantries. You are all doing really great work, and I want to make sure that concerns over copyrights do not prevent you from compiling and publishing the most complete accounts possible of your subjects.

I don't even know what to think. I had two soldiers there. After you completed the request for Hobill, I name searched Hubel and found there was a memorial, so I requested it. I absolutely rely on the VA... and I don't want to ruffle feathers. James Rowe was the second one... date of death was 7 Jan, a clerical error on the interment card with 17 Jan as death date... and service end date marked 7 Jan date of death. When the stone came back, it was 'Bowe', instead of 'Rowe'. I haven't researched yet, but I know from memory that I have more soldiers missing in that area. I searched for interment cards when I originally posted them, but I noticed more are becoming available now. Can I send you the names? There should only be about 3.
