==============================

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

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.

RE: John/Giovanni suggested edit
Ahh, that explains it then. I have both the Americanized version and surname in the 1st name field on this memorial.

Thanks,
Jennifer

John/Giovanni suggested edit
Hi Paul,

I am going to decline your suggested edit for my great-grandfather as Giovanni was his given name and John the translation he adopted after immigrating to America. This particular grave seems a bit out of your usual area, so I was wondering if you are related in some way?

RE: Declined edits
Until your message I have been writing out each suggested correction, then accessing the respective picture and making the changes. It was a time consuming effort on my part. Your clue about one click showed me how it can be done simply. Thank you. If you desire, I can now make the other corrections.

Re. Edits
Do you have a connection to the Fairview cemetery in northern British Columbia,Canada, or are you simply trolling?
You have sent 66-plus edits regarding how a second name is entered. When entering info. to create a memorial, it is immaterial whether a second name is put in the same box as the first name or in the second box by itself. Most importantly, the memorial itself lists 1st, 2nd, and last name in the same order, either way. If I'm missing something important here, please let me know. We will be pleased to deal with legitimate edits re additions, corrections, etc., but request you stop sending these irrelevant edits immediately.

Thanks, Paul, for sending the edits to separate names to the proper name fields. I know many people would probably call this nit-picking, but I appreciate it. I inherited these memorials and hadn't noticed how they had been entered. It's good to have things orderly.
Also thanks for your tremendous contribution to FindaGrave!

RE: Declined edits
When I submitted those names from PleasantView cemetery many years ago in Excel format, the way they are now is the way Find A Grave put them in. I just don't have the time to sit and make correction after correction.
Leave it..
