Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am glad that I am able to contribute and be a part of this wonderful site (when I have and make the time to!)
Gravestones help us honor and remember our lost loved ones, and this site helps ensure that memory will carry on years from now even when the stones are weathered, worn, broken or forgotten... as unfortunately many already are. I am happy that I can help record what the stones look like now before they age even more.

I have found alot of useful information from this site when researching my family lines and hope the memorials I add and those I add photos to can do the same for others! I, fortunately, am close enough to be able to travel easily to most of my family graves, but understand that is not the case for many people. Even so, it is nice to be able to 'visit' them on this site at anytime and even find new discoveries of family members in places/cemeteries I did not know of.


At this point almost all of the memorials I have created are just from visiting cemeteries in my free time to record them on find a grave - so I would be more than happy to transfer them to family members willing to add-on and improve them!

I will do my best to make any suggested corrections and reply to any messages as quickly as possible regarding memorials that I have created. I normally and do not always get online regularly, nor do I check my email everyday (or even every week). Alot of times (especially in summer) I travel or get busy and/or am nowhere near a computer or internet for over a month. I would appreciate your patience , as I will be more than happy to add and correct any info once I am available to do so.

**the memorials I have added that do not have gravestone photos - I entered info from the photos I took - I just have not yet been able to get these photos onto my computer to add to the site. Hopefully can soon!

Hello, laribel. I wonder if I could use your nice photo at this gentleman's memorial for his page I have at Ancestry; he was Dad's first cousin. I would appreciate it; thank you for all you do.

Henry Aubrey Strode (9725248)
Hello: I need your help; I've a photo of Prof. Strode, but can't post it as there are already 4 photos pertaining to his burial and the obit I added.
Would you please consider deleting the Strode family plot pic you posted?
I realize you spent some time & effort to photograph & post your pic, but perhaps you agree that his (direct) photos are a priority over family plot pic.
Thank you very much for your understanding--
Very Respectfully,
Dan

First, thank you so much for the transfer, I really appreciate it.

Particular thanks for the kind suggestion you wrote me to include my contributor number. For the memorials I have, not too many people are really working on them, so I have only had a few transfer requests from newbies. But I've been a member almost five years now, I should have thought of it myself that it would make a transfer so much easier for people who manage memorials for whole cemeteries.

I will be sure to add it next to my name in the future, and again, thank you for taking the time to write.
