|Bio and Links|
I developed an interest in genealogy after a family reunion—it started with just my family, and now extends beyond. In my wildest dreams I could not have imagined spending so much time in cemeteries photographing headstones throughout Lake, Mendocino, Napa, Solano and Sonoma counties.|
Thank you to those of you who have submitted edit requests. Your time and effort is truly appreciated.
My personal plea to photo volunteers. Photograph with a quality camera that would produce a nice, clear image. Photograph the entire monument (not just the engraving or plaque), marker, crypt or niche (avoid over cropping). It's okay to gently sweep off debris. I realize not all markers have weathered well, and some are covered with lichen, so do your best to get a good photo suitable for posting.
