Transfers: I will transfer ownership to direct descendants within four generations - the same as Find A Grave guidelines. Otherwise, I'm happy to add to memorials and make links, just click on the "Edit" tab on the top right of the memorial, then click on "Suggest a correction or provide additional information". Be sure to give me the other person's ID number when requesting links.|
One line of my ancestors (CROSE) lived in Tippecanoe Co., IN in the 1820s. Some of their cousins lived in the next county to the south, Boone, and some south of that in Hendricks Co. I live in northern Hendricks Co., and am taking photos mostly in Boone and Hendricks, including the older, more difficult to read stones. Hopefully, these photographs will be around longer than the headstones. Many are on the verge of not being readable - even with the sun at a good angle and using tricks to bring out the text.
Since I've been doing genealogy research for a number of years, I can see a real benefit in seeing headstones, rather than relying on a transcription. To me, the important thing is to be able to read the inscription (names & dates, child of ...), but not really the verse below it. It's also important to know who is buried next to whom. I'll mention that if I notice a connection.
Cemeteries that are completed - meaning that I photographed everything and have posted all that was readable. Other transcriptions may have more names.
Beck - Bethel - Browns Wonder - Jones
Lowry -Macedonia - Mintonye - Mt Union
Mt. Zion - North Branch - Oak Hill (Sect 1-29, 34N & 34S) - Pleasant Hill (Indy)
Pleasant View (Dover) - Poplar Grove - Prebster - Old Union Church - Richland - Robison - St. Malachy West - Salem
Sparks - Taylor - Trotter (I can only find 33 of the 64 markers) - Weaver - Zionsville
I currently use a 10M Canon Powershot camera which will take pictures at 3648 x 2736 pixels. Normally I reset the resolution to 2272 x 1704 and then on the computer, especially with worn headstones, I turn up the contrast 20-30%, and lower the brightness 5-10% and keep the compression at 98 to 99%. When I started posting for Find a Grave the file size limit was 250 KB, then 350, 500, 750, 2000 3000 and now 8000 KB. I use photo editing software that I downloaded for free - it's much better than what Canon or Olympus gives you with their camera. With Photoscape I know the file size before I save the file.

|Marta Vaillancourt||Shubael BARNARD (133451039) and his wife Lydia MACY (81640243)|
There is a duplicate site for these two people that you have posted, so I am hoping that they might be combined.
The other memorial site for Shubael is #131833372 and the other one for Lydia is #133450697.
The other poster did not know where these two were buried so since you have that they are buried at the Old Flora Cemetery, Flora, Monroe Township, Carroll Co., IN, I am hoping that you could help the other poster with the cemetery names.

Thank you so much for all the cemetery photo requests you took care of for me! I knew that there were issues with the names and such and you helped to correct any problems.

The photo scape software that you use. Well now has a ton of malware and adds in it. I tried to get from the company webpage and download.com. No luck still the same Norton goes nuts when I try to download it.

Nancy is my mother. Would you consider transferring her to me? Thank you.
Found Tommie's father and made some updates to the three Doty memorials. If you are a relative I will be happy to transfer.

Marc, I found Jesse and Harry's mother in the Poplar Grove Cemetery, also, plus another young son. I added her obit., too. One of those birth dates I sent you was his (the 1897 one). Her number is #133632983 .
