Bio and Links
Bio Photo Hi, please don't transfer anyone to me unless I
request it. People keep sending me memorials that I really don't want. I have been returning
some. Thanks!
Don't forget the words "Thank you".
They go a LONG way! And the words "You're welcome" don't hurt either.
Did you know? When you put in an edit and someone ignores it, the memorial will automatically edit itself in 21 days. The only way it won't is if the person declines it.

1) PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE NO dates or your name through the pictures. This is REALLY tacky!
They look awful and are SO unnecessary!! This is about them, not us.

2) No chopped off around the sides. There should be 'outdoors' around all 4 sides. I want to see what the stone looks like! Some stone pics were chopped to just show the name & date.
This looks awful, get the whole stone in the picture! Many people chop the top of the stone off...why?

3) If there's a tall stone with the info on the side, take a picture of the whole stone and then a picture of the writing.

Lloyd Smith

4) The stone picture looks best if it's taken in front of the stone, not at an angle. A trick I use to keep my reflection off the stone: I stand behind another stone and use the zoom on the camera.

5) No 'postage stamp' sized pictures. Set your
camera to take regular sized pictures.

6) Sent in from another Find a Graver: Please take the time to brush the leaves and grass clippings off the stone. But use a broom as not to upset any nasty ground bees or fire ants and get stung!

It's not all about 'point and shoot' to hurry up. Take some time taking the pictures. Let's honor our dead as best as we can by taking beautiful pictures. These pictures will most likely be the only ones on the internet for generations to come!

This is his first wife's niece, I believe. I don't know her, but she submitted a photo for her memorial. Nick's name is on Cecilia's grave marker, and I had come across her obituary in the Herald Journal.

Hope I didn't find the skeleton in the closet. No info about his remains at all? Or still with family?

RE: Bouck
Well, still trying to figure some out. I know my great grandmother Sarah and Henry (top right). I suppose that is her mother and father in front seated. Still researching all the old documents my mother has.
