Please feel free to use my photographs for your own non-profit use. |
You may post them in your genealogy records, family trees, and on the Internet.
I take a lot of photos of the headstones at Fort Bliss National Cemetery. Many are dim and are hard to read the inscription. If anyone asks me, I can retake any photo under different lighting conditions and try to make it easier to read.
A few years ago, I transcribed a lot of the Internments at Restlawn Memorial Park:
I recorded over 25,000 burials.
The office claimed years ago that there were over
33,000 Internments there.
When I first started the project, I was allowed full access to the office on Saturday mornings. The manager let me use the Sexton records, plat maps, etc.
When the cemetery was sold, the new manager informed me that I was no longer welcome in the office. I had to do the rest by reading each tombstone.
Since I have 23 relatives Interred at Restlawn, I feel that I should have been allowed to finish the project.
Restlawn will NOT give out a grave location unless the requestor is a direct relative.
For that reason, I will limit my volunteer duties to Fort Bliss National Cemetery.
At Ft. Bliss National Cemetery, a grave location will be appreciated, but not necessary.

Thanks very much for taking and posting the picture of Floyd.
|Donna Blair||RE: think I had it wrong|
I agree. Seems like they're just too large & therefore have become totally impersonal. Well hang in there, you have the support of many, I'm sure :-) At least your talents will not be wasted with the national cemetery... a very good cause!
|Donna Blair||think I had it wrong|
Oh dear. Reread your profile & believe you're talking about Restlawn (not the nat'l cem.). Either way, I think better treatment & respect should be extended. Just letting you know you ARE appreciated by many people :-)
|Donna Blair||Fort Bliss National Cemetery|
Charles, thanks so much for filling my photo request for Charlotte (Waller) KNOX. Much appreciated! - after reading your profile I feel so bad for what you've had to deal with, especially after all the valuable work you did. It's just not right. I would expect better treatment from a national cemetery. God bless you for all you DO and HAVE done!
