As I meander through the upstate New York cemeteries taking pictures, I am struck by how fast some of the markers and the country cemeteries are deteriorating. Sometimes I will post a new photo of an already photographed marker if there is a significant difference in its condition.|
I always look for down or broken stones and photograph them. I actually enjoy the puzzle of trying to decipher the almost unreadable marker.
Feel free to use my pictures of your ancestor's markers in your family trees. If you are directly related to a person whose memorial I have submitted (and we are not), I will be happy to turn them over to you!

Thank you Laura for taking the time to fulfill my photo requests for Mary and Elizabeth Angle. The photos turned out great and with your permission I'd like to add them to my ancestry.com family tree.
Thank you. Elisha Jennings was my 3rd great grandfather.

If you don't mind, and you are not related, would you transfer the 4 Dawson memorials to me? They are my husband's ancestors. Many thanks! kim

Laura, Thank you very much for the kind words about my work in the Mindenville Cemetery. I wish I could have been there when you visited. My work in the cemetery took several years (or longer) clearing away brush, branches and debris and resetting over 50 stones in 2010. There are quite a few people buried in the cemetery with no headstones, so it is near impossible to say just where they are located. If I can be of any further assistance, please let me know. Thanks again. Sincerely, Larry Schoff
Wow. That was fast - I just put in the request this morning! Thanks so much, I live in GA and that would have been tough for me, especially not knowing if the stones were still there.
