I am interested in the Anglemyer, Schuster/Rose, Wilkerson, Kraetschman names for myself. Tanner, Hunsley, Abbott, and Marsh for my hubby. |
I would love to help you if you need some. Just email me if I can help you.
YOU ARE WELCOME TO USE MY PHOTOS OF YOUR ANCESTOR AS YOU WISH.
IF YOU WANT ME TO DO A TRANSFER OF YOUR FAMILY MEMBER, EMAIL ME. I will consider each request as they come in. The way I see it--these are guidelines only, not hard and fast rules. So, if you have an odd situation with your ancestor or even if it is a friend--let me know. I am not related to very many of the names that I "manage". So, don't be afraid to ask for a transfer or whatever your situation involves.
Taking photos--I want to explain my thinking behind the way I take the photos.
I feel that it is a privilege that someone else is entrusting me--to take the best possible photo of their ancestor that I can. Therefore, I take a whisk broom with me and some water. I always clean up the stones before I take a photo. It does not take long and so improves the photo. Not to mention it just seems more respectful of the person that I am photographing. Sometimes, the descendant needs date/name verified. That is difficult to achieve if there is a bunch of debris on the marker. Debris like pine needles, branches and so on. It only take a minute if that long to wipe that all away.
Water-I take some of that just for any bird droppings on the stone. A bit of water on the droppings, wait just a sec., and the bird droppings are gone. You have to sweep, wipe away. But, the idea is that you don't use anything harsh to get rid of them.
If it is bird droppings mixed with tree pitch/sap--no chance of removing that.
So, if you are going to fulfill any photo requests for me--I would appreciate your doing it the way I have outlined it for when I fulfill other peoples requests.
Please, when posting a photo request--if known, please include all names-family names and so on. It makes it easier on the one doing the hunting if all info is known. Like, if you don't know the death date for sure, but think it's about 1910-say that. It will make a difference as to how soon your request is fulfilled.
Just in case someone wants to know someday--My source for DOB, DOD, names, marriages, military and so on is--digitalarchives.wa.gov--obviously it only helps me out here in Washington State.
I don't like having to pay any web site money for what actually should be free--esp. in the case of a 100 year old marriage license, death cert., and so on. So, I don't do Ancestry.com--although I did just for a trial period of like 6 months.
I have looked at Familysearch.org--have been unable to figure out that site, how to navigate around, so not interested in a site that is not user friendly.
The above web site is ALWAYS my source. The only other source I have here is our library.
So, please don't ask me who or what my source is--I've already told you.

Sue - the variations are numerous.
I appreciate all of your efforts. If and when you can safely take photos I will appreciate anything you can find. Maybe the inscriptions have faded over time. . .
But please, move on to requests you can fulfill. Hopefully someday I will get to Washington State and be able to do the research in person :-)

Mistakes happen...been there done it myself...but you handled it with grace and got it fixed, so no big deal!! Thanks for the overview. I noted it on the site so people could see that. I like having an overview of where they are located, so thanks for that extra step! I did redo the order so that both shots are showing. Thanks again. For a "beginner" I say you have outdone yourself! I do appreciate you a ton!

Thanks again for all your work. The photos look great. You have definitely gone beyond the expected to accomplish this for us! May you be richly blessed because you are definitely a blessing.

Have added the additional info to George and Mollie Capps. Thanks for the input. Pat
|Jon Kindschy||RE: Lewis and Mary Shriner|
I would like a better photo. Thank you. No rush. Thanks again!
|Bob & Valerie (Johnson) Freeman||RE: Laughbon|
I just called the office. The woman who took my call was extremly pleasant and helpful.
I have added the plot info to their memorials, but I cannot amend the existing photo request.
She gave me the information as:
Garden of Astor
Lot 15N(north) x 19W(west)
Spaces: 14 & 15
If you happen to notice any other Laughbon/Laughbaum/Loughbom burials near them I would appreciate anything you see.
Would so love to go to Washington someday on vacation.
Thank you agian!!!!!
|Bob & Valerie (Johnson) Freeman||RE: Laughbon|
ok - thank you. Now I understand. So several cemeteries overseen by one office.
