Please help with
"Veterans Grave Preservation"
we are cleaning up the old cemeteries in the area with hopes of documenting all of the American War Veterans buried here in our towns. With the 150th Anniversary of the of the Civil War and the 70th anniversary of WWII, several memorial events are taking place around the country. Boys and Girls Scouts, High School seniors and anyone interested can sign up for community service and give back a little something to those who came before and paved the way. This is our way of saying Thank You and giving respect where respect is due while taking a historical tour back in time. Go to your nearest American Legion or VFW Post and ask if you can help.

I am sure everyone will enjoy navigating the pages of history. Photos and stories, names and dates, friends and loved ones, you will connect the present with the past in more ways than one.
A pleasure ...

RE: Lukyanovsky Cemetery in Kiev
Hi Larissa,
I have included just one grave in that cemetery. I do have contacts in kiev, if needed be, But havent ever asked anyone there to do some research there. So, in reality no, can't be of service, but, if its something that is ultra necessary, i can try..

Wawarsing Cemetery
I saw that you added a photo of the Wawarsing Cemetery in Ulster County. Can you advise of the specific address of this cemetery. Thank you so much!

Thanks Lisa, I can probably add a few comments on Horace's bio, but nothing of real significance. Or proven really, I will try resending the original message I sent you although it looks like I had the address I used, I must look carefully. Again my thanks. Perhaps there will be a family photo or a cousin, that could fill in some blank spots for me, as you have already done

Lara, the email address that I used to write wasn't valid, where can I send you note of thanks and some information on this gentleman, I believe to be my husband's maternal grandfather.

RE: Kable family

That is so kind of you! I am sorry but it was not me that sponsored their memorials. If you want to send me the memorial numbers I am willing to help as much as I can.

You are awesome to do this!

RE: Oscar Seaman
Did you purchase the picture of the grave? The picture of Oscar himself was put on by another contributor and I'm contacting him regarding that picture. I just want to make sure I give credit where credit is due!

Thank you!

I'm working on a volume of grave locations for veterans of Co. M, 15th NY Heavy Artillery. Could I have your permission to use the pictures you posted of Oscar Seaman's grave in this compilation? I will cite you as the source.

Thank you.
