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.

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 20-25 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 informing me I duplicated a memorial. As the original had only a name and a year, I did not realize it was the same Emily.
Maybe, just maybe, if "downloaders" would add more than minimal info, people adding family members would know they already had a memorial. Mine had dates, a bio, photo, connections to parents and sibs. But I deleted it, and asked for edits on the original. Hopefully that will happen.

Hello Paul I rec'd a batch of emails from you about dupes in this cemetery. I don't know if there was a recent merge or what but I noted yesterday that a lot of mine have links and pictures while the other ones were blank - no info. I've asked Find A Grave to look into this. If you can please just send me notifications about dupes that have no links/pictures I'll be glad to delete them but the ones with added info should stay since the other one is barren. and merged into the other one. You can email "edit at Find A Grave" with a batch of links to memorials to merge

Thanks Paul for all the edits you are doing on my memorials. Your welcome to send as many edits a day to me as you wish :) I copied and pasted my data from my spreadsheet onto the Find A Grave spreadsheet and realised afterwards that the forename and middle name had to be seperate.

Thanks D :)

a duplicate

well - as soon as you have Daryl add the information that I have on my page, then I will delete mine - but I won't delete mine until you let me know you have had Daryl include the information that I have.

Most sincerely,

Michael R. Wolcott

We approved the edit you sent on this person.

FYI, we think that Otha Deen is the only one of the three on the stone that is actually buried here. I know that Jewell Gose is buried with his wife in Fort Worth and Delano Deen is probably buried in New Orleans.

Thanks...know there was a typo...not Oswego but Owego! I'll check with the town clerk's office for birth records. Appreciate your time.
