Bio and Links
Bio Photo I live in Chicago, Illinois and am working on records for my father's and mother's families primarily.
I enjoy taking photographs of grave sites for photo requests. My priorities are sites with a location provided then by request date. Many places have requests that are several years old. You are welcome to use any of the photos I post as you wish. Requests for photo files or transfers are welcome. Email rlerch000@yahoo.com or use the edit tab on a memorial.

Please provide a location in the cemetery for your photo request. Contacting the cemetery is usually successful at obtaining a location. Info about the presence of a grave marker may also be available and is helpful. Locating unmarked graves can be very difficult.

RE: Matilda Loveridge
Thank you for that information. All I had to go on was a census record. Emma was her sister and helped raise her daughter who was a young girl when her mother died. Thanks again for that helpful information.

Thanks for letting me know about George's wife Ann. I added her. I wouldn't have minded if you wanted to add her yourself.

Thanks again

Thanks a lot for going to Graceland!
Thanks for taking a photo of Bryan Lathrop. He deserves to have recognition!

Hope you can photograph the other 5 million graves at Graceland! (Just kidding, sort of). Thanks, RL
