Bio and Links
I do photo requests and out of the way cemeteries. I add and photograph veterans (the majority of the requests) as well as lonely graves, well cared for graves, or ones that appeal to my inner photo journalist.

No doubt I've handled someone's parents or grandparents. I do not mean to intrude (I rarely add recent ones). I do it as a way for those who no longer live close to connect with their loved ones. I take photos and document the ones near me and others do my ancestors who are not near me. I also do it so that old graves are not completely forgotten to time and decay.

If you have any corrections, please use the Edit/Suggest A Correction feature and let me know the source of the information so I can include that. (Information without sources are fairy tales.) If you find a dupe, let me know too. Accidents happen.

I do transfers within Find A Grave guidelines. I also do transfers outside of the guidelines on a case-by-case basis. Please send any requests though the Edit/Suggest A Correction feature and be sure to include your Contributor Number. That way I get all the information necessary to do the transfer.

Unless I give you explicit permission otherwise, do not publish, repost, or upload any photos I've contributed. This includes not uploading to ancestry trees, even if marked private. (However you are more then welcome to link to the FindAGrave memorial.) It happens to be my legal right to set these boundaries. Please respect the law.

(Claims that FindAGrave photos are copyright-free are erroneous. The "no copyrighted photos" message these reports are referring are about not uploading photos whose copyrights are held by someone else. All photos take by a private citizen automatically have a copyright.)

You DO have my permission to use my photos in your own private files on your own computer.

I liked your picture of that cemetery's specific area of ash scattering. That seems kinda weird. Have you seen other areas like that?

I have a request to transfer the memorial for Pvt John Edward Haynes - are you also related and/or interested having him transferred to you?

Thank you for adding the photo of the Tablets of the Missing for John Haynes.
Are you related to him?

RE: William Ridsdale
Cemetery records indicate that both are buried in the same grave but only the younger Williams marker is there. He went back and checked a second time for me to be sure.

Vist went pretty good. The cemetery had been "cleaned" up but I fear when that is done many of the old broken markers are getting moved around and then thrown out with the other "trash". It is looking so bare since when I first started. I got a lot of "unknown" and if I can get corporation with this technology, I will make them into memorials before they too are "cleaned' away. I will have to verify others have not made memorial of the unknown, but will only be able to check with comparing old photos with my recent ones.

Just wanted to leave a note to let you know I will be in town next week and am trying to make the best of my time. Biggest challenge is getting the most photos with the short time I can spend there.

If youd like to share, feel free to email me and I will get back to you
