Bio and Links
Bio Photo I'm a retired Radiological Engineer and a Electronics Technician Chief-ETC(SW)USN-RET. Past and present hobbies are Skydiving, Motorcycle riding - Veterans, Masonic and American Legion riders, Pistol-Rifle-Bow hunting, Genealogy, Photography and racing R/C model cars with my granddaughter.

Folks my photos are for anyone to use as long as it's not for profit. These are your family and friends. I'm just thankful that I can help but a credit would be nice. If you need the original image just contact me.

Speaking of photos I've seen some really poor ones. I don't follow their idea for a photo size as it's to small to look at, if you want to blow it up to see something. I use a Panasonic Lumix pocket "CAMERA". I crop and adjust them for brightness and contrast using Elements and my final size is approx. 1761x1000 at about 350kb file size. I carry a small brush and shovel an remove anything growing near it. If in doubt I go with an without flash an pick the best to start with. It's a one shot deal folks give them the best you can an be proud of it. Check out, Granny, #97607760.

Another thing I do at the grave site is record the GPS coordinates. I use a Garmin etrex 10. I use, boulter.com/gps/ to convert the numbers for F-A-G format. I put the Plot information and coordinates in the notes. Then the grave can be viewed from the satellites.

I also don't have a lot of memorials an that's because I'll give them away as fast as I can. I DO NOT believe in their relationship recommendation. If their your family, friends, neighbors or shipmates it's yours as long as you treat them respectfully and it's not my family. I'm surprised that there not handing out bronze, silver and gold headstones annually for the biggest (head)stone hunters.

Live long and prosper.

Talk at me later,
Bob C.
Tucson, AZ.

RE: Harry Clell Berry
Thank you so much Bob, I really appreciate it. I moved his memorial to Evergreen Memorial Park. From your photo it looks like there is no stone present and that he is buried in the center of the grassy area in the picture.

RE: Harris family
Hello, Greetings Bob. First allow me to apologize for the long delay in response. I have been busy like a one-armed paper hanger (if you will, ha, ha) I did receive your info on Hattie Harris, and it was a wonderful article. Still doing some research on that. There could be a family link there. Again Thank you for all you do and have done. You may email send a message any time. Thank you Again!!!

Clarence Arthur
I received an e-mail saying that you had taken a photo of Clarence Arthur's grave. Thank you very much. The e-mail said that the photo was already posted to the site, but I received the e-mail last weekend but haven't seen it on the site. I don't know if there is a time lag in posting as I am new to Find A Grave. Anyway, thanks again and if I can do the same for you in the Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania area, let me know.

Thank you very much for fulfilling my photo request for Henry at the Mountain View Cemetery. It is so nice that you have added the photo of the grave area and location information, with the additional information of no marker. You have gone the "extra mile" and I do appreciate that!!
