Bio Photo Any contributions (pictures or notes) I am able to make available can be used in your best interest.

Granville, North Dakota ~ My wife has come to understand my obsession for recording headstones, uncover Markers and link lost family members. We have dug four to six inches in the ground for some and survived the bushes for others. We have learned together what tools we need to carry besides a camera. We feel it is a way of showing respect for those just found for their family and friends that are to far away to do this themselves. Lisa and I enjoy the time together as well.

My obsession started when I returned from Beirut in 1983 (Operation Peacekeeper U.S.M.C.). Seeing the bodies of those left in the streets is what gave me the passion to do what I can for the families of loved ones here at home. Thus started the beginning of the Wittstruck Memorial Foundation. Some of the stories are indeed sad, but most are uplifting if not funny. All are satisfying to say the least.

Thank you so much for taking the photo of my aunt's headstone! I visited the area last summer and unfortunately, both of my cameras did not want to work at the cemetery, so I was very disheartened at leaving without the photo. You are awesome! Thank you again! Edith
