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 done. 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
Have started Chemung County - no map yet.

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 using the edit tab. 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.


I am submitting edits to move middle names/initials and/or maiden names from the first name field to the proper field. I am typically doing 20-25 per day for a cemetery. If you are receiving them and would like more or less per day, just let me know.

Got your message of duplicates of George and Dinah Hancock. When I created my entries these names and graves did not come up when searching Find-a-Grave. If you want to keep the records you have with no information and delete mine go ahead, but I will leave mine as there is considerable information available on them.

I also received all of your messages regarding duplicate memorials. It has been quite some time since the files were started, I am thinking that many of the originals were not quite correct and that is how the duplicates happened. Merging the files would be the best since the files I have created have tons more information than the originals. I really don't care that I am 'not getting credit for creating the files' I just don't want all the hard work and important information lost.

Mt Hope Cem, Rochester, NY
Received your notification on several duplicate Hawley family memorials at Mt Hope. Some of these Hawley memorials have errors in the spellings or are incomplete in dates & names. What we posted comes from documented records & photographs we took ourselves, along with all the family links. As someone else said here, perhaps the simplest way to proceed is for Find A Grave admin to merge the memorials, rather than send the other member all the corrections one by one. For example, one of these memorials is connected to 9 other memorials, plus it has corrections on names & dates. Plus, the other member left a note that he is not on the site as often. Please consider a different resolution. Trudy Hawley
