I discovered Find A Grave while searching for the grave of my grandfather's brother. This simple little search sent me on a mission to search for my ancestors and get some of my family history on Find A Grave. Once I got hooked on genealogy, I decided I could help others by adding names to the site so that sent me onto my new "hobby" - photographing graves, and now I am totally addicted. I hope my work on Find A Grave will help others in their search or allow them to "visit" a loved one's grave. |
I'm not one of those people who think they give a prize for managing the most memorials. If you have any connection to someone that I have created a memorial for, I will gladly transfer it, as long as they are not in my tree.
The Bismarck Tribune did a very nice article on my cemetery project a while back. Click Here to view the article.
I have set up a Tribalpages family tree. Click on the link below to view it.
If I have taken a photograph of your ancestor's tombstone and it is of poor quality (shadows/overgrown with grass/hard to read/etc), please let me know and I will see what I can do about taking a better one. It is hard to take good photographs of all the markers when I am at a cemetery as the angle of the sun is often poor the stones don't photograph well.
If I have helped you in your search, please return the favor and "pay it forward" and do your part to help out someone else.

Thank You for adding the grave pictures of my mother-in-law Elsie Violet Fandrich Saville to her Find A Grave memorial on June 7.
She and I grew very close during the last six years of her life. Her ashes were placed into the niche shown in your photographs today, Sunday, July 13, 2014. Unfortunately I was not able to attend the ceremony, so your photos especially appreciated.

I can't thank you enough for the picture of Bill and Irene's tombstone. It was a beautiful picture and so clear. You are a very generous and giving person. I live in Arkansas so don't get to the Dakotas like I would like. Have lots of family in North and South Dakota tho..Thank you so much again.

Brian - Thank you for going out and taking these photos for me... Hope you had a good day for this - just from the photo I would say you've been getting lots of moisture up your way hope you continue to have a great summer. Peggy
Thank you for an instantaneous edit. I thought there was something wrong with my computer. Your FINDAGRAVE contributions are impressive!! Don
