Available for you here in Santa Cruz County, California! (I'm in Watsonville, CA area on Wednesdays.) Giving back to other Find A Grave folks for likewise being provided for by others around the USA... Your cross-country trip is my 2-minute drive! Ready to help, back up, or add to other contributors in our team effort searches! Also, all my pics are public domain to be used by anybody freely, permission given, as I am not egocentric or after $$ or personal credit. Add them to matching billiongraves.com profiles if you want to!|
I try to go the extra mile when fulfilling a Find A Grave request: I look (and inquire the cemetery office) for nearby same-names that may be previously overlooked or unknown relatives... I clean the marker of dirt and bird droppings (Eww!) and trim the grass around them... I know that these photos are of your relatives, friends and loved ones: They deserve a quality portrait for all to see!
I will offer (to the "Edits" tab suggestions of the memorial manager) the cemetery office's plot coordinates, if the memorial doesn't have them, as well as any other important and appropriate info I find.
IN MY OPINION:
The primary intention of gravestones is to mark the location and provide information of the interred. But they do not last forever. When a gravestone no longer fulfills it's purpose, it should be replaced, especially before the info on the gravestone is lost. That being done, placing the old gravestone inside an onsite cemetery museum out of the elements seems the ideal thing to do!
UPDATE! FIND A GRAVE RAISED THEIR MANDATED PIC SIZE TO 8.0MB MAXIMUM!
(PLEASE: I REQUEST THAT MY PIC REQUESTS BE AT LEAST 2.0MB. ALSO, THAT THEY BE FREE OF OBJECTS OR VEGETATION BLOCKING THE MARKER'S INFO OR TEXT! THANK YOU!)
I'm willing, upon request, to retake my earlier pics that were taken when the mandatory resolution/size was much smaller.
I use my Ancestry.com account's search engine to find facts that requesters may want to add to their Find A Grave memorials.
I also add clipped obits from my newspapers.com account, which are all Public Domain.
I've been told that I've successfully helped many requesters make important discoveries for their genealogical research.
Again, as always, I'm willing and glad to help, as others have helped me in my own family tree research.

Thanks so much for the picture of Marshleen's gravestone and the very clear great picture of Roy's. Really appreciate it.

A tombstone has been placed on the grave of Marshleen Silvey. My brother saw it just a few weeks ago. If possible, please provide picture. Thank you very much.
ThankYou, ThankYou, ThankYou!

This edit thing is new to me and might have confused me, but I think I did all I was supposed to do. Let me know if I messed up and need to do more.
Thanks for the heads up.

Thank you so very much for taking a picture of my 2x great uncle. I just found him and you already got the picture. That's the fastest request filled ever. Thank you so much! If you have any requests in the New Orleans Area let me know!
Thanks for your input!

Thanks so much. It is hard tracking down relatives who died and who are buried in the great state of California.
|jim gillis||Agnes Leach|
You added the photo of her to her memorial. Was she the wife of Elwood Monroe Leach. Do you know who Monroe Leach was? He was my great-grandfather. I live in Cayuga, Indiana.
