Bio Photo If you have corrections or additions, I am happy to put them in but please, use the edit, correction suggestion to do corrections or transfer requests. I am also happy to transfer management to a responsible relative.

I became interested in genealogy in 1993 after my grandmother passed away. I have collected over 40,000 names 4500 obituaries, and 1500 death certificates for descendants of 1880 Lawrence County, Ohio.

In 2010 I found findagrave and found it to be a excellent site for remembering our ancestors.
I have done considerable work on City Cemetery, Brownsville, Texas, (adding 20,000+ names, in addition to several 1000 more by other volunteers - 25,000+ total), I also have done several smaller cemeteries in Brownsville and Lawrence Co, Ohio.

I am also working to index Brownsville Death Certificates from 1950 to 1976 (images available on familysearch.org up to 1976) and the Brownsville Herald Newspaper obits from 1977 to 2013. Currently have scanned images of 1977 to 2013, with index complete from 1977 to 2001. If you need a Brownsville obit in this time frame, send me a note with the name and death date.
After the index in complete, I expect to find several 1000 more names that have no headstone to add.

Just found a great webpage, adblock.com. It is shareware, you don't have to pay but it is worth $15-30 to block almost every ad. Stops the ads on findagrave, well worth something to stop them, but also stops adchoices garbage.

Do not post photo requests for City Cemetery. All readable headstones have been posted.

Photo requests for Buena Vista and Rose Lawn in Brownsville requires contacting the cemetery by a family member to obtain plot location information. They will not give the info to a non family member, who knows why, its just "policy".

photo acceptence
I noticed you say some of your photo offerings have been rejected with no reason given. One of the criteria for photos seems to be "No white outline" If a photo gets rejected, try cropping it to eliminate any border. Also, there is a Megapixel limit on the size of the file. My 16 MP camera would create files much bigger than allowed so I crop most of it out before uploading. I often take photos of two or three stones or markers at one time and crop each one out before uploading. Hope some of this helped.

Trying to get a photo of the tombstone of Felipa Cortez. Plot: Blk 60 lot 20. She is my great grandmother. She passed away on Sept. 21, 1910 and she is buried at Old City Cemetery in Brownsville,Texas. If you can get a picture of that I would it. Thank you for your hard work and research.
