Bio and Links
Bio Photo Been doing genealogy since 2000. Been photographing tombstones since 2002.

If you take a picture of a marker you should check the plot for other members of that family. Normally all members of a plot are family members even it they may have different surnames

To me the plot is more important then the one grave. If you find more family in the plot and want credit for them tell me and I will add the memorials and request pictures.

If I take a marker I will always check the area for more members of the family or take the others in the plot.

If you want a high-resolution image I keep the photo about a month or so. Or if local I can get them again.

Please note: Only speaking for myself and the photos that I take. Findagrave does have rules you should be aware of regarding copy or using photographs posted. Copywrite laws, etc. Please do not take this as permission for all photos at findagrave.

I am giving my permission for you to use my photos in any way you see fit for your family. To me they are just a rock with letters on them.

Request for Family Links / Transfers

I have been getting a number of weird requests in the last few months.

1. I double check all requests.
My checks many times add family links to the memorials.

2. If you tell me they are your relatives. I must assume they are my relatives too. I have the better claim. Tell me how your related!

On they have "U.S., Burial Registers, Military Posts and National Cemeteries, 1862-1960", don't trust the index, LOOK at the IMAGE!

Christian & John Lynch
The graves you found for Christian and John Lynch, located with the Mead family, are for 2 children of Peter and Mary Mead Lynch. I have been unable to find the burials of the parents. They were living in Milwaukee in 1920 and presumably died there. They should be buried at Calvary with other family members, but the website does not show them. Maybe you can find out more. Please let me know, if you do. Thanks.

RE: Seifert/Rauguth
Hi Phillip,

Unfortunately no, I don't know how they are related. I tried looking for records but could not find anything definitive. Thanks!

I've chosen not to add middle names. The memorials are cluttered enough with nicknames, maiden names, etc.
