Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been interested in genealogy research for over 20 years. I enjoy taking photos and adding the information to this site in hope that it will help someone researching their family. I especially enjoy filling volunteer photo requests because it combines my love of photography, genealogy and volunteerism. If you see any mistakes or have additions to my postings, please let me know and I'll make corrections. I reserve the copyright of all my pictures.

Duplicates: It's never my intention to create a duplicate on purpose. If you come across a duplicate I have made, please use the SAC and let me know.

I happily make transfers within the 4 generation "Find A Grave" Guidelines which are:
Spouses, Parents, Brothers and Sisters, Children, Grandchildren, Great-grandchildren, Grandparents, and Great-grandparents. Please use the "EDIT" tab to ask for EACH transfer. PLEASE STATE YOUR EXACT RELATIONSHIP TO THE DECEASED.

If you are seeking transfer to "have all your family together" ~ use the virtual cemetery button. Then all of the memorials will be in the same "cemetery", and you can look at them daily.

Tip: Please include the gravesite location when requesting a photo. This can be done by calling the cemeteries directly.

You recently added a tombstone photo for memorial # 170984847 .

This is not the correct George, the cemetery must have given me the wrong plot # or the wrong person. I will have you remove the photo until it can be sorted out.

Thank you

Benevento grave Holy Cross
Thank you so much for adding the picture of my family's headstone. We have moved away and have not been back to the cemetery for way too long. I cried when I saw it. I can't thank you enough. Bless you! Many thanks from the Benevento family. - Emily

I have an edit in but it has not been approved. I put that in when I requested the photo and if you had taken the time to look at the memorial you would have seen that.

Hi Again, Found some more data on Marcus. The Town Clerk's Register of Civil War Veterans recorded him as being born in Duanesburg NY (submitted an edit to add the location). His parents were James Herrick and Julia Sherbourne. Paul Turner

Hello Again BK, Anthony was a another Civil War Veteran of the 134th NY, I'll submit an edit request to add his regiment and company to the Bio section of his memorial. The sources were his death notice, which listed his service in the 134th. Thanks for having created his memorial. Paul Turner, descendant of a member of the 134th NY Infantry.

Thank you. I love finding the family. Now if I could just get info about Jane's sister, who was buried on Hart Island in the 1970's. So far there are no online records for her. ~sigh~
Again, thank you.

Wrong Grave Marker Photo
You may want to check the memorial of:

Jared Coffin #108492548
The grave marker photo added does not match this person and you may want to remove it and add the correct one if you have one.

I see why you would want clearer photos of the stones. I will put them on my list for my next visit to Rockland County.
And thanks for reminding me about the photo requests...I did that for the Mohans. :-)
