Please use the edit tab and SAC to ask for a transfer or update.

I am retired so I have time to walk through the cemeteries and take pictures. In mid July 2010 I started a project to record as many memorials for the cemeteries in my county (Broome, NY) with pictures that I could. This project is drawing to a close. I have completed all the cemeteries that I am working on. There are still 4 other cemeteries being worked on by others. I have moved on to cemeteries in Susquehanna PA and Tioga NY.

The following link will show all the cemeteries in the surrounding counties photographed (by me and others!) and added to Find A Grave:

Broome County NY Cemeteries
Tioga County NY Cemeteries
Susquehanna County PA Cemeteries

If I have added memorials for any of your relatives, please thank me by visiting a nearby cemetery and add the gravestones there for others to find their relatives.

You have my permission to use any picture taken by me for private uses. For public use, you may use them as long as I am given credit. For commercial use, please contact me.

If any of the memorials I have created need updates, please contact me. If any are a relative of yours and you want to manage them, let me know and I will transfer them. Please use the edit tab and SAC to ask for a transfer or update.

Ernest Hust (and wife Sophie)
Hello Paul :)

You had uploaded an image of Ernest R. Hust's stone (memorial 101689600). At that time, Zofia (nickname Sophie) Shuta Hust was a pre-need. She has since passed and I have created a memorial for her. Could you and would you mind uploading that same image to her memorial 138733056?

Thank you so much for your time and treasures you create.

Helen T. Tripp Telford Memorial# 64140244
Hi Paul,

I'm going to put through a suggested correction or two for Helen in a moment. They are going to seem odd, so I thought I'd tell you where they are coming from.

Maiden name was Nikula. See her husband Arthur C. Telford's memorial (# 64140241) where an obit is posted from 1948. The obit gives her maiden name and their marriage date.

Her father (Harry C. Nikula # 55485137) died 18 Nov 1958 and his obit lists Mrs Helen Tripp as surviving.

In the 1958 Binghamton City Directory, Helen is listed as spouse of George J Tripp who was an employee of Nikula Const Co.

Her son was married in 1969, the article listed his parents as Mrs George Tripp and the late Arthur Telford.

George J Tripp (64140652) is also one of your memorials, so you'll see a link suggested for him too.

Think that is everything, thanks for your time and effort.
