|Bio and Links|
I've been involved in genealogy for nearly 20 years — researching all lines of my family, including ancestors, collateral ancestors, and cousins. I also enjoy researching my more than 175 relatives who served in the military.
The vast majority of memorials I have added and/or manage are for relatives of mine. I intend to add photos of them and their gravestones, as well as biographies, obituaries, and relationship links for as many as I can.
MY FULFILLMENT OF PHOTO REQUESTS
Prior to photographing gravestones, I clear away any debris on or in front of the memorial/marker, such as dirt, leaves, twigs, or grass. I shoot the gravestone straight on, as well as wide shots from the left and right to give context/perspective. I also shoot the back and sides of the gravestone if anything is engraved there.
Prior to uploading photos, I rotate them to ensure the engraving is level. Then I crop the photos and adjust their contrast and brightness, if necessary. My goal is to provide people with professional-looking photographs.
FULFILLING MY PHOTO REQUESTS
If you fulfill any of my photo requests, please also email the full-size images to me at "rab_42 [at] yahoo.com" (replace [at] with @), as they make much better prints for my album. If available, I also request the plot number, burial date, GPS coordinates, and cemetery map. I do the same for photo requests I fulfill, whenever possible. Thank you!
POLICY ON USING MY PHOTOS AND RESEARCH
I grant permission to anyone wishing to use my posted GRAVESTONE photos on other genealogy or cemetery websites or in family trees, but YOU MUST CREDIT ME to this effect: Photo copyright R. Boas, FindAGrave.com member number 47304667, used with permission. This not only gives due credit for my work, but it allows others a way to find and get in touch with me, if necessary. Failure to do so is copyright infringement!
I DO NOT grant permission to repost any portraits, snapshots, documents, etc.
If you wish to use any text from my memorial pages or even incorporate any of my family links into your own family tree, YOU MUST CREDIT ME to this effect: Written/Researched by R. Boas, FindAGrave.com member number 47304667. Do not use my research or portions of my family tree in your public family tree without attribution to me. Failure to do so is plagiarism!

Hello! I added your Aunt Florence's place of birth. I will transfer but first I ask that you allow me to get photos of her crypt. You don't have to do a photo request, though, because if you do, I might not be able to claim it before someone else does. We are saturated with volunteers in the South Bay.
I'll let you know when the photos have been posted. In the meantime, if you have portrait photos of your Aunt, please feel free to add them.
PS - Chris Mills added about 25,000 memorials, using Inglewood's online grave locator. He passed them along to me when he got deluged with requests. At one time I believe he had over 400,000 memorials!
|Peg Eddy||RE: Walter and Glenice Scriver|
You're very welcome. So glad I could help. Would it help you if I sent you the photo in an email so you could perhaps see that symbol more clearly? I'd be happy to if you want to send me your regular email. Mine is email@example.com.

|Journeyman||RE: McNulty Family in Southview Cemetery|
I did take more photos and I posted those for Ernest and another for John per your request.I also have photos of the tops of the small stones and of 2 more sides of the big stone. I will e-mail them to you to use as you like. If you add more names to F-A-G fell free to add the photos as well. The top of the memorial is indeed broken but judging by a similar memorial, it was an urn that broke off and is nowhere nearby. The back of this memorial is blank. The stone next to John's military stone reads Mother. I assume this would be Letitia.

I made the links you requested and changed the spelling of Abiathar's name on his memorial. I had created the memorial from Peggy Jenks' transcription and didn't notice the different spelling when I uploaded he photo.
|Seth & Cathy Finney||Luther Finney|
I thank you for your email. My Luther Humphrey Finney is my husband's 2nd great grandfather, which makes NathanielFinney his 3rd great grandfather. Nathaniel did indeed die in 1843,Hillsdale, Mich soon after their arrival to Hillsdale Co. Mich. I have my husband Seth's direct family line traced back into England to 1490, with documentation. I have been researching my husband, Seth Wilbur Finney's family for 30 years. I have much to offer. I have family documentation, and my own research documentation that I have gathered through the years. The photo's on my Ancestry.com site are all mine, taken during my travels to the cemeteries during my research. I enjoy traveling the US in search of our families roots.
I thank you for the information you sent me, I will deal with it in due course.

You are welcome and thank you so much for the compliment. I just know that normally not being able to visit, that these are the photos I would like to see for one of my relatives or friends I was trying to find or honor.

Per cemetery office Elizabeth Moon Norton is buried in Section ii, Lot 140, the Pavelka plot. The front of the upright marker is engraved "Moon." The back is inscribed Clyde A [Moon] 1894-1946, James Pavelka 1892-1967, Gertrude Moon Pavelka 1903-1981. There are fllush military markers for Clyde and James.
I found my great great grandfather's grave posting because you posted it. Was wondering if you were related.

|Janet Muff||RE: Lucetta/Lucretia|
Sorry if I gave you the wrong impression. I don't believe that Lucetta stayed in Granville at all. I don't know what happened to her.
I just wondered how she met her husband and migrated to New York given the fact that her entire family seemed to remain in Vermont. Did she have cousins out there? Or friends? Or did her husband had relatives in VT. (There are a lot of Nortons in the area.)
I'm quite sure your Lucetta is the daughter of Lyman and Polly, I was just trying to resolve in my mind how she ended up where she did.
