I take pictures of cemeteries for my own pleasure and decided to share them as a way to "pay it forward" to the wonderful people back in PA who were so kind as to post pictures of my family headstones, which have helped in my research projects. Hope they post more!
If any of the pictures I've posted offend you feel free to send me a POLITE message asking it be removed. I'm not interested self promotion or looking to getting attention for a group, so it won't bother me to remove things as long as you aren't OBNOXIOUS. :0)
Yes-I've had an unpleasant encounter with one of the grave police. I was going to quit posting until I made the mistake of going back to apologize(I was rude back) and then read a message about myself from another of the cronies. He said he didn't know why people like me would volunteer we just make messes(I added a second more legible picture, that was the mess)...It made me realize why, so other people wanting to contribute will have one less negative encounter. :-)
bad encounter with the grave police Hi, I am sorry you have had a bad encounter with the grave police. We all have. However, I hope they did not run you off. We need all the helpers we can get to document these stones. As you stated in your bio...its a great way to pay it forward for those stone photos being posted of your family members in PA. I too hope that my work will promote people to photograph my family members in Florida and Alabama.
Anyway, dont let anyone discourage you. I have been corrected many times for things I did wrong. Most often it has been a very kind way. When its not, I just simply report and block. After all, we are all supposed to be adults here. This is not high school.
I hope you come back! Peace and good health, Angie
