Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been into genealogy since 1983 when a family member contacted me for information. Since then it has been hobby that never ends, a puzzle incomplete. The earlier years were different when I sat in libraries and historical societies throughout the northeast USA and read thru the microfiche. I did photograph headstones, but back then only because it might have been different or pretty. "Find A Grave" is a great treasure.

Living in the historic Wyoming Valley of Northeast PA, there are many cemeteries that are old and need to be preserved or logged soon.
I plan to do my share, and pass it forward .......

Since I also photograph as I travel I add many who are not of my family. If you have a family connection with any of my entries, please feel free to ask for transfer...

I HAVE WALKED AND PHOTOGRAPHED OVER 1300 HEAD STONES AT WEST PITTSTON CEMETERY, LUZERNE CO., SO I CAN POSSIBLY OFFER LOCATION HELP. Also, completed photographing Eaton Cemetery, Mosier Cemetery and other small family burying grounds

My most recent and ongoing projects are transcribing the record books from Pittston Cemetery, and working with the negative scanning project from the Greater Pittston Historical Society ( GPHS ). Also transcribing old record books from the City of Pittston.

St. Mary Church Maternity Cemetery Sign Photo
Hi Sharleenp,

I wanted to ask your permission to use the photo of the St. Mary's Church of the Maternity Cemetery sign and entrance photo, I will cite the photo as yours? I would be putting them on my online public tree. Thank you.
