Transfer requests for 'all surnames in a cemetery' will not be processed. A separate transfer request must be submitted for each memorial.

I am retired so I have time to walk through the cemeteries and take pictures. In mid July 2010 I started a project to record as many memorials for the cemeteries in my county (Broome, NY) with pictures that I could. This project is done. I have moved on to cemeteries in Susquehanna PA and Tioga NY.

The following link will show all the cemeteries in the surrounding counties photographed (by me and others!) and added to Find A Grave:

Broome County NY Cemeteries
Tioga County NY Cemeteries
Susquehanna County PA Cemeteries
Have started Chemung County - no map yet.

Cemeteries Statistics as of 05/15/2016 (by County): ...... # cems . # Mems ... w/photo
Broome ........... 149 .. 190,882 .. 177,237 (92.8%)
Chemung ........ 125 .. 118,576 .... 45,136 (38.1%)

If I have added memorials for any of your relatives, please thank me by visiting a nearby cemetery and add the gravestones there for others to find their relatives.

You have my permission to use any picture taken by me for private uses. For public use, you may use them as long as I am given credit. For commercial use, please contact me.

If any of the memorials I have created need updates, please contact me using the edit tab. If any are a relative of yours and you want to manage them, let me know and I will transfer them. Please use the edit tab and SAC to ask for a transfer or update.

RE: John F O'Hara (133065161)
Hi Paul, My experience has been to trust dates on the Death Certificates. Often times, those purchasing headstones may be reliable on providing dates as the stones may be purchased long after the death of the individual. Death certificates are made at the time of death. Give me a call. We can talk about John and his wife Margaurette Garvey. Number is 423-764-6835.

Hi Paul
Thank you for taking all of the photos that you have. I am from Long Island and my stepdad's family in from Chemung County. He now lives in Tampa, Florida. So, it is nice to see a picture of the headstone of his relatives and to be able to share that with him as we will not likely be able to get out there for quite some time. Thanks again for taking the picture of Maude and Harry Earle Raplee's headstone.
