Bio Photo ===========================
Please use the edit tab and SAC to ask for a transfer or update.

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. 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.

Swetech transfers

Thank you so much for your kindness in transferring my husband's Swetech relatives in Holy Spirit Cemetery so I may work on adding information. My husband and I deeply appreciate it.

Hi Paul -

Could you add your photo from my cousin Douglas Gardner #58567881 to his wife's memorial #108877901?

Thank you so much for all you do - I never would have found the family if you hadn't created his father's memorial.

Although both families were from Canada, turns out we were all living in Wilmington at the same time when my dad was a Canon at the Cathedral of St. John during the 50s.

Lydia (Ames) Whitaker
Above is wife of Amos Whitaker - both buried Vestal Park Cemetery. On your info sheet on Lydia, you have listed her father as Elijah Ames. As a descendant of Amos & Lydia, I would like to say that there is no proof at this time that Elijah Ames was Lydia's father in spite of some claims on Ancestry.
By the way, I am very grateful for all of the information and pictures you have posted about my various ancestors who are buried in Vestal.
