I'm not sure how I happened upon it, but I discovered "Find A Grave" in April 2012. I am a hobby genealogist and a neophyte at that. |
In the fall of 2008, by chance, I came into possession of two family photos from the early 1900's, one from each side of our family. I have always sensed this discovery was more than coincidence, perhaps a nudge that I should pay attention to. Since then, I have found this "hobby" takes me in many directions. Branches of our family have been reacquainted and we have come to know family that we had never met.
"Find A Grave" takes me on still another path and allows me to help others with similar interests. I grew up in a Funeral Home and have always been intrigued with cemeteries. I'm fortunate to have a husband who shares my curiosity and often accompanies me on graveyard excursions.
I live in Oxford County, Maine which is located in the far western portion of the state. If anyone is searching for gravestone photos in this area, I will assist wherever possible.

Thank you so much for taking and posting the photo of Nina Cotton's tombstone. Would you mind if I added it to my tree on ancestry? I would credit you as the source.

Thank you so much for fulfilling these photo requests. Marge and Henry were very dear friends of my parents and we have a wealth of memories of this very special couple. I can't tell you how much it means to be able to "visit" their distant graves.
