Bio and Links
Bio Photo What began as a way to memorialize only members of my family has turned into something larger and seemingly open-ended. Most of my memorials are not for my relatives.

I have helped to inventory and photograph two cemeteries in their entirety: East Batavia Cemetery in Batavia, Illinois and Oakwood Cemetery in West Chicago, Illinois. I also have done extensive work in Calvary Cemetery and Glen Oak Cemetery in West Chicago, Illinois.

I have tried to add as much information as is readily available. I will gladly make corrections or add information. I try to process requests as quickly as possible, but please allow the recommended time. Please do NOT use flowers for these purposes. Doing so is against FindAGrave guidelines. Flowers are to be tokens of respect; flowers left for any other purpose will be reported.

Feel free to use any of my photographs for non-commercial use, but please give credit where credit is due.

Thank you to those who have added photographs and flowers to my memorials. They are appreciated. Please add appropriate photographs to any of my memorials, but I would very much like to know that you have done so. I would like to see the photographs myself.

Out-of-guidelines transfer requests will be evaluated individually. Please do not take me to task if I do not transfer when such a request is made. Inappropriate or abusive comments will be reported.

"The ultimate goal should be to have meaningful, accurate memorials that honor those who have passed away, regardless of who created the memorial or who maintains it."

RE: Headstone Photo for Walter John Marecki, Jr
I went to St Adalbert's Cemetery and I searched quite extensively. I feel confident to say there is no grave stone for Walter Marecki Jr. Just the head stone I found previously. Sorry I could not do more.

Stephen Rinehart at Forest Home Cemetery
Hi Dennis,

Thanks for providing the additional information to confirm Stephen's birthplace. I have modified the memorial to reflect that. Do you want this memorial transferred to you? I am not related and if you have more information to add, I'll be glad to let you manage it.

Thank you for taking the picture and posting it of my great great Uncles grave marker. I searched for it when I was in Batavia, but now realize I was in the wrong cemetery. I did find some of his children in the cemetery I was looking at though and photographed them along with some Reynolds family members. I will use your picture if you don't mind and will certainly give you credit for it. Thanks again.
