Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been interested in cemeteries since I was young. My interest started by going with our neighbor's grandfather who was caretaker of our local cemetery. We would ride to the cemetery on his tractor. I enjoyed walking around reading the gravestones. Now I know that there is more. Each cemetery has it's own history and beauty. They all tell a story. By adding memories and pictures, I hope to share this history and beauty. I am a cemetery walker.

"A cemetery is a history of people - a perpetual record of yesterday and sanctuary of peace and quiet today. A cemetery exists because every life is worth loving & remembering always." Unknown

Hey Dalia, I saw that you added a photo to a memorial for Fraser Cemetery in York, New York. I was curious if you happened to live in the area for a question.

Did you send the following email through Ancestry?Hi Denise -I see that you have the Gruettners in your family tree. Gustave Gruettner was my great grandfather. His daughter Emma was my father's (Albert J Hoffmann) mother. I am wondering if you would share how you are related to the Gruettner? I have memories for the Gruettners and Hapkes on Find a Grave. I am wondering if I could uses your pictures of them on my memories? DHM
If so I tried to reply through Ancestry but it was rejected possibly since we let our subscription lapse. Following was my reply-Gustave was my great- grandfather also although through Emma's stepsister Martha. Go right ahead and use any of the pictures. Do you have the picture of the family in front of the house? If not I could send it to you

Hi Delia,

Thank you for taking the time to walk the cemetery and taking pictures of the headstones.

I am originally from Batavia but I currently live in AZ and I'm researching my family back in WNY. Your work allows me to do this.

Thank You,

Ron Dawson
