Thanks to a lady named Annette and the photo she placed on Find A Grave, I was able to break through a brick wall in my quest to document the family tree. Since then I've placed a number of requests. I am very grateful to the folks who took pictures and filled those requests.

I pretty much limit myself to taking pictures in the San Francisco National Cemetery in the Presidio of San Francisco. It's an absolutely beautiful place with lawn that would make any gardener envious and with breathtaking views of the Golden Gate Bridge and San Francisco Bay.

If there is anything I put up on this web site that needs correcting or that you would like me to remove, please let me know. If you would like me to transfer a memorial to you, please let me know. Be sure you are logged in and then use the edit tab. With the exception of my own family's memorials, I would be happy to make the transfer.

Through Find A Grave I've been privileged to come in contact with some really wonderful people. This is a team effort and it is amazing how this database has grown. It is fun, even though it can occasionally be awkward when I tell someone I take tombstone pictures. :-) There have been many kind e-mails and public messages. While it is always nice to get a pat on the back, that is not why I do it. I do it in the hopes that what I do might help others as much as the work of others has helped me. Over the years there have been a few disagreements, very few. With an exchange of private e-mails disagreements usually get worked out. That is part of the teamwork. But I find public messages that are not polite to be uncalled for. I was raised to believe that you praise in public and criticize in private.

Thank you for photographing the back side of my father's gravestone, with my mother's name. I had
not ever seen it before I viewed your picture. Since 1976, we moved from Los Angelese, and we have lived in NJ/PA, and 10-years in Jerusalem, Israel. So I have not seen the grave in many many years. Another picture to add to my family tree!

Again, thank you.

RE: photo request
Thanks so much Carol, I've never been to the Cemetery as I live in Ontario, Canada, but some day I hope to visit. Thanks so much for the GPS Coordinates. I understand it's a hugh cemetery so these will come in handy. Smart thinking girl. Cheers! Christine

Carol, thank you so much for providing a photo for Edlore Brizette's memorial. You have no idea how much this means to me.
