Bio and Links
Cemeteries have been an interest of mine for almost 30 years. Digital cameras have made it possible to take millions of pictures - basically for free. I began photographing family tombstones about 15 years ago just so I could document my genealogy efforts. A friend and I have taken over 9,000 pics in one cemetery (finished in 2012) and we have taken thousands more, over 52,000, in several other local cemeteries. I have taken pics of all the tombstones in the cemetery where my late husband and his family are buried. Not a big place, but historic. He stated before he died that the cemetery used to be "full" of tombstones, but due to age and vandalism, there are probably less than 300 left. Many of those are broken or knocked down. This is why it is so important to have pictures of what is left!!

We have submitted a lot of our pics to our local library's genealogy section.

Harry Harlow
You may want to remove your candycane flowers message from his memorial. Another Find A Grave volunteer found and photographed his gravestone.
Thanks for your help.

Oakwood Cemetery
Harry & Blanche Harlow were found by another Find A Grave volunteer. Sounds like the cemetery office needs to do some updating.

Milton and Henrietta Copley
Thank you for the info you discovered about Milton and Henrietta Copley buried at Alton Cemetery. I made a photo request and back in December you made a note that their graves were unmarked and you indicated the locations of their graves. I very much appreciate the time you took to investigate this for me. They are ancestors of mine. Perhaps some day I could find out how to get the graves marked. Thanks again. You do important work!

Harry Harlow death certificate
You requested a copy of his death certificate showing that he is buried in Upper Alton Cemetery. Since you have no email address and you don't know how to access the Missouri digital death certificate data base, I am at a loss as to what to do next.
