|Bio and Links|
Retired US Army colonel and then college administrator.|
40-year genealogist and member of SAR. Have written 11 family genealogy books.
Travel extensively to attend college sports events and visit cemeteries. In fact, have posted FindAGrave "volunteer photos" from cemeteries in 41 different states, plus DC.
Will gladly transfer a memorial to you unless I or my wife are a closer relative. Just ask (politely).
And feel free to use any of my photos.
A couple of tips if you would like volunteer photographers like me to take cemetery pictures for you. First, if possible, include the grave location -- one way to learn a grave location is to phone the cemetery; if a cemetery with thousands or even tens of thousands of graves has 20 photo requests and the volunteer has only an hour or two to take photographs, we are likely to select first the requests that include the grave location. Second, if you want multiple photographs (e.g., husband and wife), list both/all of them; we volunteers feel we are more helpful the more pictures we take, so we are likely to choose first a pair of requests.
Thanks, and have an awesome day.

Hi Bill. My husband descended from David Bates through Sarah Jane Bates Livingston. I am writing you to ask your permission to use the information you have put on Find A Grave about William and some of the other Bates family members in my husband's family history in my books and on Ancestry. I will give you credit for all of the information. Jim passed away in 2008 from cancer but I am building his genealogy for our children. Thanks for all the work you do on Find A Grave.

I wanted you to know what a fabulous job you have done at The Fort Huachuca Cemetery. I appreciate it! If there was an award for the clearest, best photos I would nominate you! :)
|SMH||RE: Father Mike Day|
At that time the cemetery put this marker on the grave. Waiting to put the head stone or marker in. I will go over in a day or to and see if they have put one in and take the picture for you if you like. Glad to help.

Thanks so much for taking the photo of the grave of Henry Myers. Henry was in Co I, 120th OVI. I have been researching the 120th Ohio Volunteer Infantry for the last 11 yrs in order to identify the men. I would like permission to use your photos on my site and on any CD or print copy of my research that I will give to the Wayne County library in Wooster OH. I always give credit for the photos.
Thanks for any help.
