I am retired so I have time to walk through the cemeteries and take pictures. In mid July 2010 I started a project to record as many memorials for the cemeteries in my county (Broome, NY) with pictures that I could. This project is done. I have moved on to cemeteries in Susquehanna PA and Tioga NY.

The following link will show all the cemeteries in the surrounding counties photographed (by me and others!) and added to Find A Grave:

Broome County NY Cemeteries
Tioga County NY Cemeteries
Susquehanna County PA Cemeteries
Have started Chemung County - no map yet.

Cemeteries Statistics as of 05/15/2016 (by County): ...... # cems . # Mems ... w/photo
Broome ........... 149 .. 190,882 .. 177,237 (92.8%)
Chemung ........ 125 .. 118,576 .... 45,136 (38.1%)
Susquehanna . 195 .... 59,514 .... 46,757 (78.6%)
Tioga .............. 104 .... 66,513 .... 57,391 (86.2%)


If I have added memorials for any of your relatives, please thank me by visiting a nearby cemetery and add the gravestones there for others to find their relatives.

You have my permission to use any picture taken by me for private uses. For public use, you may use them as long as I am given credit. For commercial use, please contact me.

If any of the memorials I have created need updates, please contact me using the edit tab. If any are a relative of yours and you want to manage them, let me know and I will transfer them. Please use the edit tab and SAC to ask for a transfer or update.


I am submitting edits to move middle names/initials and/or maiden names from the first name field to the proper field. I am typically doing 20-50 per day for a cemetery. If you are receiving them and would like more or less per day, just let me know.

Thank you for your efforts on behalf of the Finch family, of which I am a member; Nathaniel R. was son of Alpheus my 3rd GG fa. So now you know where I am in the Finch family genealogy.

Hi Paul, it looks like there is a glitch somewhere that won't let me use the name edit tab. So can you please add Carrie's middle initial as L and Goodenough as her maiden name? Thanks so much.

Good morning, Paul,

Thanks for the really quick job of linking Rebecca to her dad! I really appreciate all of the work you have done, and are doing, on find-a-grave! Hope you don't run out of steam!

Take care.

Hi Paul, I submitted an edit request linking him to his parents. I added photos of his obit and his regimental flag to his memorial. Found the info while doing research on his brother Thomas. Thanks for having created his memorial. Paul Turner

RE: Edits
After adding more than 20,000 by hand by transcribing church records I think I am done

I am approving your edits for movement of the first and middle name, not sure if these are your relatives, but in Quebec, almost every girl had Marie or Mary in the church records, and often the family is not even aware the priest included that as the name, 99% of the time they go by the second name, which is why the second name was included in the first name. Same goes for Joseph.

If these are not your relatives, then I suggest you leave the names they way they were entered so relatives can find them, and they will not be looking for Marie or Joseph.
