|Bio and Links|
I have been into genealogy since 1983 when a family member contacted me for information. Since then it has been hobby that never ends, a puzzle incomplete. The earlier years were different when I sat in libraries and historical societies throughout the northeast USA and read thru the microfiche. I did photograph headstones, but back then only because it might have been different or pretty. "Find A Grave" is a great treasure.|
Living in the historic Wyoming Valley of Northeast PA, there are many cemeteries that are old and need to be preserved or logged soon.
I plan to do my share, and pass it forward .......
Since I also photograph as I travel I add many who are not of my family. If you have a family connection with any of my entries, please feel free to ask for transfer...
I HAVE WALKED AND PHOTOGRAPHED OVER 1700 HEAD STONES AT WEST PITTSTON CEMETERY, LUZERNE CO., SO I CAN POSSIBLY OFFER LOCATION HELP. Also, completed photographing Eaton Cemetery, Mosier Cemetery and other small family burying grounds
My most recent project was helping to finish the transcribed and digitization of the record books from Pittston Cemetery, and working with the negative scanning project from the Greater Pittston Historical Society ( GPHS ). Also helping to transcribe the old record books from the City of Pittston.

I got notification on 10-30-2015, that my photo request was fulfilled. However, I'm not seeing that is was uploaded. Was the fulfillment in error?
Thank you for all of your volunteer work!

Minnie Seybold Weiskerger was the wife of Lewis F Weiskerger who is a 1st cousin 3 X's removed from me. It looks like were related by marriage and not Blood.
Glad to learn of new relations and keep up the good work with the cemeteries and Find A Grave.

Hello again! I'm confused on this one...the memorial # you put isn't mine and already has a spouse linked.

|Daniel Roberts||Grave of William Roberts|
Hi.....I was sent a message that you had located the grave of William Roberts #133120610 and had taken a photo of it. There is still no picture on his memorial page....Dan Roberts.
|MaG||RE: Buildings on the outside|
Yes hopefully we will! I've been a little under the weather so I haven't been there in about a week or so, but hoping I can get out there this week since the weather is supposed to be nice.

Me again. One more question. I have pictures of the buildings on the outside (and there is one on the inside). Obviously they are locked, so there is no way to see the names inside. Have you worked on them or is that on your to-do list? I'm just not sure how to get the info and/or pics.

Hello! Thank you for all of your additions of info and newspaper articles on my memorials. If there are any you would like to care for, be it friends or family, let me know and I can transfer.
Hope all is well!

Yes, have noticed many people walking, it is a nice area for that. Actually told my husband that I wish I knew about this cemetery when we moved to Pittston 10 years ago, it's so close for walking. I grew up across the street from our Church/cemetery and we used to walk there all the time.
I did the whole outside, almost all of the top section and almost all of the far right section. Hoping to get out again tomorrow since it's supposed to be nice weather! I'm amazed at there being so many cemeteries in our area and not so many people adding them on here.
