Bio and Links
I have been doing my family genealogy for about 30 years. I have recently been entering family cemetery markers as I get them. I found this site while searching for family members.
As I go to cemeteries looking for family markers, I check photo requests for that cemetery and try to get them while I'm there, if the cemetery is agreeable enough to give me more locations.
I'm in Baltimore, MD.
The great majority of my photo requests are for grave markers of WWII casualties from Maryland. Help with that effort is always appreciated. For more information, please visit:

Find a Grave has implemented a new way to submit Edits! Unfortunately, there are far too many members for Find a Grave to notify everyone via email, so it's up to us to get the word out. If every member posts this message (or similar) in their profile, hopefully we can help spread the word.

To suggest a correction (SAC) click on the edit tab of the memorial that needs to be corrected. Then click on the link which best describes where your edit should occur. Enter your correction, when you're done, click submit edit. Your request will be sent to the manager of the memorial and will appear in the managers' profile under the Edits tab.

Managers will no longer receive emails. They must go directly to their profile page and click on the Edits tab. Managers can approve, deny or ignore, suggested corrections. It's quick and easy!

The exception:
Requesting a transfer other corrections are still handled the same way. Click on "suggest any other correction or addition," type your message and press "send this message." The manager of the memorial will receive an email.

RE: Your Barbara Pasarew request
Hi, Dan
Thank you for your message. JOWBR has Barbara Pasarew listed in that plot 5A, so I figure they must have got that info from cemetery or synagogue records rather than from seeing the stone itself. A general group photo would be fine, thanks. I figure there was no stone.

I do have photos of some, but not all of the Hackermans and the Pasarews.

Missing Ruth Hackerman.

Have Morris Pasarew. Have Irvin and Stanley, Mollie and David Hackerman.

Don't have Dina and Joseph Hackerman, but they are in completely different plots 3/4/10 and 3/2/34, don't know if they are related.

Thanks again!

William Lilly
An family tree indicates he was born in Ireland and immigrated to U.S. from Canada. I'd be happy to transfer management of this memorial if the Lilly's are related. Kay

I added his parents' information to the bio section of his memorial and searched for location of his parent's burials. No additional information was found other than your suggestions. Thank you. Kay

Thank you for taking the photo. By looking at it, I could see it was not for my direct line relative. She may have been a more distant one, however. I appreciate your help.

Monroe & Bertha Woodward
Hi Dan. Thanks you very much, again, for the outstanding photos of Monroe and Bertha. I sincerely appreciate your help. Being born and raised in Baltimore, I have a lot of relatives buried in BNC and being out of state, have relied on volunteers like you to help me see their photos. Your photos set the standard, not only are they clear and easy to read, but the way you compose the picture puts the grave in context and lets the viewer actually feel like he is there. These are more than pictures, they are works of art. Thank you very much. Rick
