Learn something each day, and teach something each day ...
For me, photographing cemeteries has evolved from an interest in genealogy, nature, and a quest for understanding life. I enjoy following the paths of my ancestors, searching for their final resting places. I also enjoy fulfilling photo requests. Finding graves brings a rush that makes the search worthwhile. Photo volunteer work is just a small way of contributing and giving something back to others. Cemeteries are by nature peaceful places, and I enjoy the peace I find while searching. Yet, my favorite cemeteries are those that are filled with activity, either relatives visiting their loved ones, joggers, or people walking their dogs.
Currently Pekin IL is home base (but I love to travel).
Carrie Skiles Have not had the chance to do much on the site for awhile. I ad moved way out in the country, and there was no internet service at all. I just saw in email that you provided a photo for my Ancestor.
Wishing you a great weekend, and again, thank you so much for your time and effort obtaining the photo.
Joseph Picton Thank you so much for adding the tombstone picture. It really helps to get confirming or additional information. It is because of people like you, who go out of your way to assist us, that we are able to link to our family members.
THANK YOU I am delayed in giving thanks for the nice photo you took of my gr-gr gramdma because I somehow missed the electronic notification. ^.^ You can imagine how surprised and happy I was when I saw it on her memorial today. Thank you for this kindness in filling my request for the photo.
Correll Family in Swam Memorial Garden A belated thank you for providing headstone photos of my ancestral family. I have been gone for the winter and just returned to my genealogy research. If you have no objection, I would like to post the photos to my family tree on ancestry.com. Your time and efforts are greatly appreciated. Sandi
