Bio and Links
Bio Photo Served as family Historian for the Senft Society of America over 30 years and a Marine Corps Vietnam Veteran 1967-1968.

Note: Any duplicate memorials are not intentional. If you find a duplicate memorial that I posted, please let me know.

If you have any corrections, additions, changes, or transfer requests, please first try to use the edit tab on the memorial page.

I'm always glad to receive updates and corrections, and thanks to those who send them.

Transfers will be given to those who will commit to being responsible updating and maintaining the memorials whom I am not related to, outside Find-A-Grave's four generation policy.

I have sent updates to members who had memorials transfer to them, and do not update them.

To them, if you are collecting memorials like baseball cards, and don't have anything to add, don't ask for a transfer.

Also I will post obits and will credit those who send them.

Please visit my Dad, Harry Edward Senft and Mother, Gertrude Mae Guyer Senft Memorials.

********************************

If anyone wants any of my photos posted, send a web link of the photo you want posted also with a web link to the memorial. If there are more than one person on the stone, you only need to send links for one person per stone with the memorial page link. As soon as I can, I will post them as requested.

For all those who used my pictures without my permission, please document them or remove them and post no more. When I ask to have my photos to be deleted, I expect them to be removed.

I have found hundreds of my personal undocumented photos copied on F-A-G and other genealogy sites.
This is a copyright infringement. They are my personal property and not public domain.

Even when using public domain photo's, they should be documented to show respect for those who took the photos.

Most members have been real respectful and documented my photos that were posted without my permission. To them, I let them keep the photo they posted, unless I have a better photo that I retook or enhanced.

I hope F-A-G members understand that taken these photos took over 10 years of hard work, and this is not all about me. I done this for preserving history for the generations to come and to help this generation to find their family members.

When I first stated taken these photos I was only concern about getting the data on the headstone. After years past I started being more concerned about picture quality. There were times I went back and forth many times to cemeteries to get better quality photos and re-done the whole cemetery for that reason.

I seen some members get upset over the dumbest things including myself when reacting before thinking. If I offended anyone in the past, I apology for the lack of better communications.

We should all work together and be respectful to one other, even when we disagree with each other. Bottom line, we should all be in this together for the future generations to come.

York and Adams County, PA Cemetery Pictures

Harry Senft has taken over 282,811 pictures of of headstones, 334 cemeteries in York and Adams counties that are ALL posted online.

(Also,there are some in Cumberland Co., PA, Lancaster Co. PA, and one in Carroll County, MD.)

In conjunction with FamilyHart (aka Don & Jeanine Hartman), Custom Google Maps for each cemetery location have been produced so that the user can easily find the cemetery. An index of the cemeteries listed is also provided by name and by location. In addition, indexing of the actual cemetery picture files with links to the FamilysHart Online Databaseare being compiled. The FamilyHart Online Database contains over 985,000 linked family names, most of which have connections to York and Adams counties. This family database is the most comprehensive and complete listing of York and Adams County names on the Internet. It grows by over 1,000 names per week, and is updated online quarterly.
By The Hartman's
The York County Cemeteries USGenWeb site is a relatively comprehensive site for finding transcriptions and pictures of Tombstones in York County. Many of Harry Senft's pictures (and those of others) are posted here and are indexed by cemetery. Also found here are transcriptions of many cemeteries (some complete and many incomplete.) These transcriptions are valuable as they often include stones that are no longer readable and may not show up on photo images. Also many cemeteries only have transcriptions. Neither this site or the FamilyHart site are all inclusive for burials in York County but used together they provide the most comprehensive record of burials in the county found online.
There are over 345 different cemeteries in the county. Finding the right cemetery is compounded by the fact that many cemeteries have changed names over the years and are now known by different names. A comprehensive list of cemeteries can be found at York County Cemeteries and Locations. This link does not have burials listed but is the most complete listing of all the cemeteries in York County.

Re: Henry C Markley
Thank you very much for the photo of his headstone. This is a tremendous held in the Markley Family Tree. Do you mind if I use your picture for my Tree ? ( The Markley Family comes down to the Fullingim Family from Silsbee Texas. They are my half sisters and brother's adopted family )

Thank you so much for taking her grave stone picture. It was very helpful since it had her husband's DOD which I did not have.

Thank you again for the picture and the many contributions to this site.

Hello, I want to thank you for taking you and fulfilling my requests. The George Lower stone does not seem to fit with the memorial i have. the age says 88 years. but he was only 17 when he passed. im wondering it maybe his father is also buried in that grave and maybe that is a stone for him.

RE: Charles Sunday Shiloh cemetery
Thank you sooo much for doing this for me! That picture is my favorite. His daughter took that before he died while he was standing in the barn. Then his grandson superimposed a picture of the farm behind him and brought it to the funeral. Everyone wants one! Thanks again!
