Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been doing my genealogy now, for almost 20 years.. the chase is almost as much fun as finding those elusive relatives. I am always looking for new cousins..

I do this for fun and to help others in their quests as people have helped me.

If I accept your photo request, please be patient. I go to the cemetery more than once to get the best possible picture with the best possible lighting. Sometimes this means I use the entire two weeks allotted to me as I work fulltime and weekends are best to get the lighting that will make the stones the most readable.

When doing a photo request, I will always check the area for more members of the family or take the others in the plot and post those as well. If you want a high-resolution image, I keep the photo, so please let me know.

I do carry tools to clean around the stones, trim grass and sweep away dead grass, etc. I know what kind of picture I would like to have, and do my best to get the same for you. Some of my earlier attempts are not as clear, so if it is local, I can certainly retake them.

Use of my pictures (unaltered) for your family trees, both personal and on Ancestry is certainly acceptable. All I ask is that you give credit where credit is due and not claim them for your own. Please note where you got them from and leave my watermark on them. If you want to use them in a family book, please ask.

TRANSFERS: I will gladly transfer ownership of any memorial that is not family, if you kindly follow the process. I do not feel that you have to be a close relative to care about putting information on the memorials.

Please send any updates through the "suggest a correction or provide additional information" link on the memorial.

Petrusky Request
Would you mind adding the fine pictures you took for Margaret Conroy's marker to the memorial for her husband, Richard Petrusky (65231779), or alternatively, I can add them myself. Would simply like to make sure his photo is current as well. Just wanted to make sure you were okay with the request.
Thanks so much!

RE: Lowen
Absolutely, you may use the gravestone picture in your Family History. All I require is that people not try to sell my pictures or otherwise try to charge for them (unless used in a larger volume of a book). Glad it could help.

I'm sorry - yes you may, do you know if there a way that I can stipulate this on the photo's that I take for people.

I am new to this.

Thanks, Carol

Linn Grove Cemetery
From my correspondence with the cemetery, I now understand that you are the volunteer that takes photos for their excellent website. I'd like to compliment you on your work there.

Like most genealogy enthusiasts, I frequent cemeteries, on line and in real life. Linn Grove's on line experience is almost like being there. I can't get to Colorado, so it's great to be able to "visit" my family members on their excellent site. I can tell that the photos are taken with great care. Good job!

Yes, you may use the pictures and if there is more relatives there also you can use them.
I would like credit for taking the picture by adding picture taken by Marilyn Sanner Keim.
