Bio and Links
Bio Photo Been doing genealogy since 2000. Been photographing tombstones since 2002.

If you take a picture of a marker you should check the plot for other members of that family. Normally all members of a plot are family members even it they may have different surnames

To me the plot is more important then the one grave. If you find more family in the plot and want credit for them tell me and I will add the memorials and request pictures.

If I take a marker I will always check the area for more members of the family or take the others in the plot.

If you want a high-resolution image I keep the photo about a month or so. Or if local I can get them again.

*********************************************
Please note: Only speaking for myself and the photos that I take. Findagrave does have rules you should be aware of regarding copy or using photographs posted. Copywrite laws, etc. Please do not take this as permission for all photos at findagrave.

I am giving my permission for you to use my photos in any way you see fit for your family. To me they are just a rock with letters on them.

Request for Family Links / Transfers

I have been getting a number of weird requests in the last few months.

1. I double check all requests.
My checks many times add family links to the memorials.

2. If you tell me they are your relatives. I must assume they are my relatives too. I have the better claim. Tell me how your related!

On ancestry.com they have "U.S., Burial Registers, Military Posts and National Cemeteries, 1862-1960", don't trust the index, LOOK at the IMAGE!

Agnes E. Wilde Brever (140254732)
Thank you for the picture. This lot may possibly be shared with Agnes' parents (J Wilde 125385655), whom I've been trying to locate for some time. He owned land in the southwest quarter of section 17 which is now part of the cemetery.

Thank you for the picture. The grave location information came from the Milwaukee Archdiocese records from Holy Trinity Cemetery. I suspect that she has a flat stone that has become buried and under grass over the decades.
Regarding the year of death, I'm fairly certain that 1910 was a transcription error by the Archdiocese when they computerized the data. She was born in 1833 according to Census records and at least 82 years old at time of death even by the Archdiocese record.

I'll do my sun dance just for you, provided I can jump around. My back isn't doing too well.

RE: Lorbiecki
I want to thank you again for all the work you have done with my requests in WI. I just saw nasty messages about find a grave and am absolutely disgusted with some the the remarks that were made. I wonder if the people making these remarks ever do anything for others to start with and if not maybe they need to change their outlook on people doing this for free. People can be so ignorant with comments. I hope you share the good with others who do this work for free. I hope you have a great holiday period. I would say Merry Christmas but not sure if you celebrate. I can say have a wonderful, healthy New Year to all of you and the work that you do Carol Jacques

Think that is the original?
