Bio and Links
Bio Photo Been doing genealogy since 2000. Been photographing tombstones since 2002.

If you take a picture of a marker you should check the plot for other members of that family. Normally all members of a plot are family members even it they may have different surnames

To me the plot is more important then the one grave. If you find more family in the plot and want credit for them tell me and I will add the memorials and request pictures.

If I take a marker I will always check the area for more members of the family or take the others in the plot.

If you want a high-resolution image I keep the photo about a month or so. Or if local I can get them again.

Please note: Only speaking for myself and the photos that I take. Findagrave does have rules you should be aware of regarding copy or using photographs posted. Copywrite laws, etc. Please do not take this as permission for all photos at findagrave.

I am giving my permission for you to use my photos in any way you see fit for your family. To me they are just a rock with letters on them.

Request for Family Links / Transfers

I have been getting a number of weird requests in the last few months.

1. I double check all requests.
My checks many times add family links to the memorials.

2. If you tell me they are your relatives. I must assume they are my relatives too. I have the better claim. Tell me how your related!

On they have "U.S., Burial Registers, Military Posts and National Cemeteries, 1862-1960", don't trust the index, LOOK at the IMAGE!

RE: St Adelberts
I Don't know who these people are but THANK YOU they are so nice. I went to find my Aunt (My Mother's Sister) and finally a nice gentleman came out to help the helpless lady. You always find them and do such a nice job. :)

RE: Mary Valeria Blinkiewicz Wobschall
I see that your photos show a tombstone for Charles Assarssen next to Maria Glier. I cannot read the years on it. For now I expect that he was Mary Blinkiewicz's prior husband. There is no memorial for Charles Assarssen. Maybe the cemetery record of lot owners may be helpful in figuring out relationships.

RE: Mary Valeria Blinkiewicz Wobschall
I do not know whow her parents were. I have a note that she may have married an Assarssen. She and Charles had three children and none were Mary.

Sikora, Katarzyna (nee Szweda)
Sorry about the previous computer is jumping around!
So, thank you, Phillip, for the picture showing that there is no headstone for Katarzyna. It's the first time I've seen anyone do this and it's an outstanding idea.

I noticed you claimed this request and now it shows its unclaimed. Is there no headstone?
