RE: Riverview Cemetery
Hi Leland
I have done a lot of photos in that cemetery. I had photographed all of the stones of those who passed on the east side of the street. I started in the older section of the cemetery I am not sure how far I got I was working in sections. Probably the best thing to avoid duplicates would be for you to start at the far North end in the newer section. I have not done much if anything in that area. I have been pretty busy and not able to do any more photos. I would love the opportunity to work with you but not sure when I will be free again....I will send a note when I am able to go out and volunteer again and see where you are. Thanks :)

RE: Middle East Conflict Wall
what? that's terrible. My guess is some young computer tech misread your request. I would load them back on again.
