Bio and Links
Bio Photo Live in Baltimore County, MD; summer at Limekiln Lake in Inlet, NY. Write historical articles for Weekly Adirondack in Old Forge and appear on www.adirondackalmanack.com , am interested in Adirondack and Fulton Chain historical figures, of whom many are in Oneida and Lewis Counties and other NY cemeteries, many now inactive, often in obscure locations.

I work from my cemetery photos, then linking the graves through Ancestry.com trees, and newspaper sites such as www.nnyln.net and fultonhistory.com. I often contact ancestry trees to let them know I've found their family members, especially if I've used their trees to confirm or help link family members on findagrave.

There is always a chance for errors and happy finger typos. So please do not hesitate to let me know if you find something needing correcting, have more family connections or question the links I've made, using the "Edit" tab on the memorial.

If you find I've added a photo where one was already present, I often take photos to get the whole stone and a closeup for clarity or to get the family group of stones. If I find a photo of part of a stone and I have the entire stone , if the back of stone is shown without the front, I will add my own to the benefit of the memorial and the deceased's family who may not be able to go to that location.

In like manner, if someone has a better, clearer photo than mine, please add it and don't hesitate to ask me to remove mine. Please contact me and I will be glad to do so for this any other reason.

I don't add to existing photos to replicate what is there or to add to my statistics. If you believe mine repeats what you've added without additional benefit, please ask me to remove mine and I will do so promptly.

Rather than add memorials from listings, I add memorials from walking the cemetery and taking photos.

Anything I add to findagrave is intended to be used by you.

My profile photo was taken at a mock cemetery at Sturbridge Village.

Your Bio on f.a.g.
I commend you and thank you for your work; I appreciate that you have given permission to use your photos and will give credit to you when I use them. As stated in your bio, I am one of those not able to travel to the cemeteries to find my ancestors. Again, thank you; Cid Swartz-Lamkins.

William Foster Grave
Received your message. My cousin Connie (William's daughter) is still alive and living in South Carolina. I will let her know and see if she wants to have his death date added.

Thanks!

RE: system problems findagrave names
Thank you, I try to be.
Find A Grave has been having serious problems for the last two weeks. It was down completely for 3-4 days.
I tried your example and sure enough, the name on the memorial is Willam Jones. The "Family links" and "Sibling" entries are Ryan. On the left side when you click on "Find all Jones in: Calvary" it shows "no records". Have you tried creating a new memorial and deleting the defective one?
I have had other people tell me they have been having issues with Find A Grave. Hopefully, they will get it all straightened out soon. I would report the issue to Find A Grave.
I did Pine Grove Cemetery, Poland, NY and some of the pictures I added disappeared. I went back and re-entered the pictures.
Very frustrating but, this to shall pass.

A warm thank you for the memorials posted at Find A Grave, I add the professional approach is of the highest calibre. I will be reading your articles for Northern New York is where my New England Colonists settled. Families of Spencer, Benton, Seward, Kenyon and Stone allied with many early families of the period.

Regards, Joan

RE: Cataldo
I've never done that before. Either way though I don't have a problem with a new memorial in the right cemetery

131776727 is the new memorial. Feel free to fix my errors by creating one in the right cemetery since you took some great photos :) Seriously I am not territorial or a memorial collector as some are. I really just want them to be in the right cemetery.
Just let me know when I need to delete someone, feel free to use obits or whatever.

thanks for all you hard work!
