You have my permission to use any of my photographs for your family research.

I am very willing to add to and correct any of the memorials I manage and will do so as quickly as possible. Please help me out by making suggestions through each memorial's EDIT button. This makes it much easier to locate the correct memorial to make the recommended additions and corrections. It will also make certain that I see the request. Requests made through member page messages can get missed.


FELLOW PHOTOGRAPHERS - the website below has some great tips on photographing headstones, it is a worthwhile read - check it out.

Briefly - some Do's and Don'ts
- do use reflected light to photograph hard to read stones (use a mirror or other reflective surface)
- do get down to eye level with the stone
- do fill the viewfinder with the stone
- do take some close ups and some photos showing the entire stone
- do use only distilled water and soft wood utensil (bamboo or popsicle stick) to gently remove lichens
- do use soft natural bristle brushes

- don't use chalk, flour, shaving cream, graphite, etc. to read stones (these can damage and/or stain the stone).
- don't do rubbings as the pressure can damage the stone and/or break the stone off
- don't use soaps, vinegar, club soda, bleach, or cleaning solutions of any kind
- don't use wire brushes, sharp metal objects, knives, nail files, etc.

Hi Gayle,

First, thanks for all the Yunker transfers. I’m happy to have them.

Then, as for the infant Yunker, I am not finding any information in my records about him or her, but if you transfer the memorial to me I’ll keep digging. The Yunker family is vast, and there must be some info somewhere.

“Unclaimed remains” -- how sad.

Thanks again, Blanche

Yes, I would leave it as Larsen since that's the way the marker reads. And that should prevent duplication. And as you can see, I was able to add and link her third husband but am not sure about her second.
