Anyone who wants to take over management of any memorials.....just ask!
Also, any and all photos that I've taken in these cemeteries can be used by anyone, you don't even have to ask! If anyone has a better photo of a gravemarker that I've added, just add it and let me know, and I will delete the one I added.

If you would like me to take a photo of a gravemarker or retake a photo, check with the cemetery or Twp. office and find out what section it is in; then I will walk the section to find it. I will then replace it if it is on my interment page or email it to you if it is on someone else's page!

Jackson Monument Works does a great job in cleaning and restoring grave-markers, I've seen them at work while I was photographing markers.

Thank you, Vern. I will be sure to share this info with my son-in-law's mother. She will be thrilled.

Hello Vern. I am researching for my son-in-law, Robert Leeke, who's maternal line is Pacyna. Can you transfer ownership to me? And I was wondering if you found a Wladyslawa (female) Pacyna and/or Jan (John) Pacyna, a good chance there are no markers. Thank you for your help.

Thank you so much for both updating and transferring management of my grandparents! I was able to add more photos and feel like their memorial is more complete. I see you've done this for many folks, and I want you to know your "retirement work" is deeply appreciated!
