I am on vacation with no internet access. Please be patient and I will process all edits/transfer requests when I return. Thank you.

Please use the edit tab to ask for updates. Please use the free-form entry ('Suggest any other change or correction') only if there is no category for your change.

For transfers, please use the edit tab, then 'Suggest any other change or correction'.

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 drawing to a close. I have completed all the cemeteries that I am working on. There are still 4 other cemeteries being worked on by others. 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

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: Transfers
Sorry, I thought sending the transfer requests in a single e-mail would make it easier for you. I will send the transfer requests separately.

RE: Gambia Rider.
Yeah, I added his father James to the database today, even though I don't know his dates or where he's buried. At least that will help anyone looking for Gambia Rider to find from whence he came.

And thank you for taking all those Rider gravestones. Saved me a trip up to Broome county

RE: Sarah Rider 59214775
What I've discovered from experience is that if the spouse is filled in on the person's page (for example, Charles' number was linked to Sarah on Sarah's page), if you don't fill in the [all ready] filled in spouse's number, it changes the spouse to unknown, deleting the pre-existing link.

But, since the number is all ready filled it, findagrave won't allow you to fill it in again. It sends you a very stern warning about how the people are all ready linked.

This is called a conundrum.

Had Sarah and Charles been linked on Charles' page, I could have added Sarah's parents without deleting the link to Charles

The only good thing is that when you get a request for a link from someone, if the spouse is going to be inadvertently deleted, the name of the spouse shows up on the link request as "unknown" in bright red letters. I've found it easiest to simply write down the spouses memorial number, and relink them again after linking up the parents. But if you don't know it going to happen, you don't know enough to fix it.

FYI, it appears that any time something is going to be deleted, it shows up on the request page in bright red letters.

I'm sure they'll fix it sooner or later, hopefully sooner than later.
