Bio and Links
Bio Photo Transfer policy: I am currently willing to transfer 100% of my memorials (as long as they don't have a family connection to me), no questions asked. For all of Florida cemeteries, I save all of my original photos and I can probably work out where in the cemetery the photo came from. If that could be of use, don't hesitate to ask.

Royal Palm Memorial Gardens in Punta Gorda, Florida: I am able to walk Royal Palm taking photos every two-to-three weekends. I have finished walking the entire cemetery and entered every memorial, and only need to upload all the photos.

Charlotte Memorial Gardens in Punta Gorda, Florida: same comments as for Royal Palm above except I have only begun walking and photographing. My wild guess is that there are probably 4,000 memorials, so only a small fraction are currently online here.

Oakside Cemetery in Zephyrhills, Florida: I am able to walk Oakside every two-to-three weekends. Most of the cemetery appears to be in the system but it was very low on photos. In uploading photos, I am finding where many corrections are needed. Thank you to those who are promptly and patiently making those corrections.

St. Mary's Cemetery in Schenectady, New York: I used to walk this cemetery 10+ years ago and probably never will again due to geography. I cannot recall how much of the cemetery I logged - maybe 50%? Sorry for no photos and sorry I won't be able to provide much more info than what is here.
