I am retired so I have time to walk through the cemeteries and take pictures. In mid July 2010 I started a project to record as many memorials for the cemeteries in my county (Broome, NY) with pictures that I could. This project is done. I have moved on to cemeteries in Susquehanna PA and Tioga NY.
The following link will show all the cemeteries in the surrounding counties photographed (by me and others!) and added to Find A Grave:
Broome County NY Cemeteries
Tioga County NY Cemeteries
Susquehanna County PA Cemeteries
Have started Chemung County - no map yet.
Cemeteries Statistics as of 05/15/2016 (by County): ...... # cems . # Mems ... w/photo
Broome ........... 149 .. 190,882 .. 177,237 (92.8%)
Chemung ........ 125 .. 118,576 .... 45,136 (38.1%)
Susquehanna . 195 .... 59,514 .... 46,757 (78.6%)

If I have added memorials for any of your relatives, please thank me by visiting a nearby cemetery and add the gravestones there for others to find their relatives.
You have my permission to use any picture taken by me for private uses. For public use, you may use them as long as I am given credit. For commercial use, please contact me.
If any of the memorials I have created need updates, please contact me using the edit tab. If any are a relative of yours and you want to manage them, let me know and I will transfer them. Please use the edit tab and SAC to ask for a transfer or update.
I am submitting edits to move middle names/initials and/or maiden names from the first name field to the proper field. I am typically doing 20-50 per day for a cemetery. If you are receiving them and would like more or less per day, just let me know.

|Shannon Pancoast||Thank you for giving me peace of mind!|
Paul, thank you so much for posting a picture of my grandparents' gravestone. I live almost 1,000 miles away and can not visit. The last time I was there my grandmother still had no stone, nearly 20 years after her death. I once saved the money to get one for her, but at the time my grandfather insisted that it was not my responsibility and wouldn't allow me to do it. I am so happy to know that she finally has the respectful stone she deserves. Thank you. I will pay this forward and take pictures from my local cemeteries to post here.

Paul, thank you for the photo and cemetery info, which I have changed on her memorial page.
for catching my typo
|Susan Houghtaling Odom||Stella Houghtaling|
Thank you so much for the transfer. Has made the family "whole".
Thanks for your suggestions re: Mr. Tammaro. I have added additional information to the memorial, noting that the obituary and the grave marker have contradictory information about his date of birth, and directing attention to your photograph. When I get a chance I will seek to clarify from other public records.
Your efforts to improve the records are, as always, much appreciated.

Hello, Paul! Thank you for the memorial of Julia Q. Simpson, 69602047.
Is she kin or is it that you kindly took her photo as you photographed other grave stones that day?
