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!

Thanks for all the pictures you have taken of the headstones of my relatives. You have taken so many and I'm sure there are still more of my family that I will be requesting in the near future. Because of the kindness of you and others I decided to pay it forward and accept requests for pictures in my area. Today I spent quite a chunk of my afternoon trying to locate the graves of several people. This was made very difficult because the location markers at this particular cemetery are few and far between. I appreciate your efforts even more after my treasure hunt today. Thanks again.

Thanks Phillip. Have you ever been to the town of Milwaukee Cemetery?

RE: Magdzinski.
Apparently you have not been to the old Town of Milwaukee cemetery north of Bayshore mall. It looks like a city dump.

Hi Phillip, once again huge thanks for taking more pictures. They are always so nice. Hopefully I will have my family all located soon.

Thanks Phillip for the picture. Went to Holy Trinity yesterday. An acquaintance from the Milwaukee Genealogical Society was saying that that cemetery was not in good shape with the old headstones. I was pleasantly surprised to disagree with him. I think it is well kept up and the graves weren't bad. If he wants to see some bad graves go down to St. Adalbert in the corner of 13th and Howard.

Thanks for the pictures and the info yesterday about Holy Trinity. Always thought it was in the southwest corner near 13th and Howard. I was going to run over today but it seems to hot and humid. Frank

Hello Phillip,

Thank you once again for fulfilling another one of my photo requests. I greatly appreciate it.
Any idea what/who is behind the flowers?

Kind regards,

RE: Peter Odya - Holy Cross
You are very welcome. I can transfer if I didn't already. I wanted to ask you where exactly Holy Trinity cemetery is? I thought you went to Saint Adalberts you went in on 6th street. If you wanted Trinity you went on 13th street. The sign on 13 th street said Saint Adalberts. Went close to the corner of 13th and Howard. I have a nephew that died in the 1950's and he is in Holy Trinity. I took some pictures near there but online says it again was Saint Adalbert.
