I am retired so I have time to walk through the cemeteries and take pictures. In mid July 2010 I started a project to record as many memorials for the cemeteries in my county (Broome, NY) with pictures that I could. This project is done. I have moved on to cemeteries in Susquehanna PA and Tioga NY.

The following link will show all the cemeteries in the surrounding counties photographed (by me and others!) and added to Find A Grave:

Broome County NY Cemeteries
Tioga County NY Cemeteries
Susquehanna County PA Cemeteries
Have started Chemung County - no map yet.

If I have added memorials for any of your relatives, please thank me by visiting a nearby cemetery and add the gravestones there for others to find their relatives.

You have my permission to use any picture taken by me for private uses. For public use, you may use them as long as I am given credit. For commercial use, please contact me.

If any of the memorials I have created need updates, please contact me using the edit tab. If any are a relative of yours and you want to manage them, let me know and I will transfer them. Please use the edit tab and SAC to ask for a transfer or update.


I am submitting edits to move middle names/initials and/or maiden names from the first name field to the proper field. I am typically doing 20-50 per day for a cemetery. If you are receiving them and would like more or less per day, just let me know.

Ida M. Glass edit
Done. You aren't by chance related to the Glass family, are you? I'd sure like to know who the parents of Moses J. Glass is. CindyLee

RE: Charles Willard Brooks
Paul, the interment records show the child was Raymond B. Brooks who died at 3 months old year and died Aug.19 ,1918 buried in Glenwood cemetery lot 126 . Also C.W. Brooks is buried in lot 126 and he died in Aug. 29, 1926. Also in the same plot is another Raymond who died in 1960, Plus Asabelle and Sarah all in the same plot 126. Brooks family Plot.

If you still feel I should remove the newspaper article I will do it.

Floral Park Cemetery
Hello Paul. I see that you uploaded a picture on 10/14/2010 from Floral Park Cemetery. Headstone says Isaac VanTassel 1830-1899 and underneath is his wife, Catherine 1844-1921. Also listed are George and Etta, children. I have requested the location of this stone several times. I spoke to a man at the office and he told me to leave him the info and he would call me back. I have not heard a thing. I also attempted to locate the stone myself but apparently missed it in passing. Is there a chance you can tell me the location of this stone or at least the section to check into. Any help is greatly appreciated.

Thank You,

Joe Barry
