Bio Photo ===========================
Please use the edit tab and SAC to ask for a transfer or update.

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 drawing to a close. I have completed all the cemeteries that I am working on. There are still 4 other cemeteries being worked on by others. 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

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. 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'm sure you get a lot of these
but thank you very much for what you're doing. You have posted my grandmothers grave (ellen and william sipple). our family lives in fl and i have only ever been to her spot just one time in 2005 when i placed her ashes in that spot you photographed. it was like it all came back once i seen it and that was good for me. if you happen to ever go there again could you please just make sure to stop by and just tell her i'm still waiting to see her again. Again thank you so much my friend you dont know how many memories that simple photo you took brought back to me. <3

Thank you so much for the picture of the marker you posted for Reuben Bennett. I think pictures make memorials more meaningful and server as additional proof to researchers that the individual is buried in the location shown. Thank you again, Pat in Texas
