My interest in findagrave started when I worked on a family tree for my husband. We found some of his relatives and where they are buried through this site. It was comforting to look at their headstones and imagine what life was like for them more than 200 years ago.
I would like to thank all the volunteers for their time and effort in photographing and documenting the grave sites. I was so impressed with their work that now I am a volunteer and I enjoy spending my free time at the cemeteries documenting headstones of which some, unfortunetly, will be totaly unreadable in a few years.
In photographing cemeteries I noticed some of the older, hard to read headstones have been scratched to try and make out a name or date. I DO NOT alter the headstones in any way, instead, I take several photos from different angels to try to read them.
If you find any mistakes, please contact me. I am not perfect and do make mistakes and when they are pointed out to me I gladly make the correction.

Any photo from a cemetery that I've posted at Find-A-Grave may be used for family trees, personal use, etc.

Thanks for the offer, but that's can keep the memorials. I was only related via marriage, once upon a time :)

Hi Monika ...

Thank you so much for your offer but I already have a picture ... I just haven't posted it yet. She was my husband's sister.

Bernice Batta Melcer
My name is David Campbell and my mother's father is Frank A. Batta. I believe Bernice is his sister. I am trying to do the genealogy for the Batta side but it has been slow going. Mom passed away in Sept and I want to finish this in her memory.

If you have any information I would like to share. My email is and mobile is 850-712-8791. I will be in Biloxi tomorrow to view the grave site and take pictures.

Thank you

Hi Monica
This is my grandfather. Are you related? or is this just one that you took and posted.
