Army Blanket, Olive Drab - 1922
When I fulfill requests, (as best I can) I take a photo that includes the entire stone and any accoutrements, then I take a clear close-up photo of the inscriptions. I think it is very important that every bit of information on the stone be passed on to the requester.
This is not a "scavenger hunt", but an important facet of genealogy, not to mention memorials to our loved ones.
You have my expressed permission to use any of my photos (or the following commentary):
Who would hold hostage - under the fictive pretense of copyright - the photo of a grave stone?
~| MEMORIES |~
Oft I remember those I have known
In other days, to whom my heart was lead
As by a magnet, and who are not dead,
But absent, and their memories overgrown.
With other thoughts and troubles of my own,
As graves with grasses are, and at their head
The stone with moss and lichens so o'er spread,
Nothing is legible but the name alone.
And is it so with them? After long years.
Do they remember me in the same way,
And is the memory pleasant as to me?
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
VETERANS MEMORIAL CEMETERY
As of 15 Jun 2013, I have photographed every visible headstone in this cemetery - all have been posted.
That's over 6,400 headstones.
With that many photographs, they can't all be "great".
If you would like me to take a more thoughtful photograph - better lighting, background, grass trimmed away, etc - feel free to ask.

since you placed my uncle on here before i could. i hope that at sometime you will replace the pic of the gravestone because its incorrect. my aunt karen ordered and had another placed because his middle name doesnt start with a J, it was H for Herman. also i hope you will let me ad family pictures to the memorial. thank you.

|Larry Krueger||Your request for Marjorie Donovan|
FindaGrave has duplicate (two) memorials for
Marjorie Mae Cashman Donovan
One is yours from 2010, WITH a picture of her grave stone where she died in King, WI..And another that duplicated yours in 2013 by "lookingforkin (#46805055)"
Yet you (Who has a photo)are requesting a photo of her grave stone in Niagara, WI.. Did you possibly intend to request a photo for her husbands stone who died up in Michigan and may be buried in Niagara??? Or am I missing something here?
|Nadeen Sobottka||Kreiger at Wood Nat'l.|
Hi Jim, I doubt that you're done finding duplicates of mine. I'm still tweeking the memorials and trying to add addt'l. info. where I can find it. But I did delete my Krieger and added the info. to the pre-existing one. Thanks and if no one else has said it, I do appreciate your work on this! Regards, Nadeen
