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.

Thank you for accepting the edit. A complicated family but good that they're all buried together. And thank you for creating the memorials.

John P Whittemore # 44756762
Hello Paul,
I have a big question for you about John P Whittemore. Find A Grave Memorial# 44756762 John P Whittemore born 11 July 1848 - 4 Aug 1917 Record added: Nov 24, 2009 by Carole Whittemore

The Family said he was buried at Riverside Cemetery in Endicott, Broome, New York. I received this message from another Findagrave member -relative:
My husband and I went to the Riverside Cemetery in Endicott, NY to look for the grave of John P. Whittemore. He is not buried in this Riverside Cemetery. I was able to contact the church and the caretaker of records and there is no record. There records go back a long time before the dates your are looking at. There are other Riverside Cemeteries in the area and it may be one of them. Sorry I couldn't help you.Barbara Hughes

Would you have any idea? You have been to that cemetery and I was wondering if you may have taken a photo. I know people are sometimes not listed in the "book of records" but ARE buried at the cemetery. (Found one and photographed at Crown Hill Cemetery here) If you could help, I sure would appreciate it.
