I believe the most important part of this website is the sharing of information and not how many are mine to maintain. A transfer will be done unless it is my family or a person of strong interest to me, all you need to do is ask. If you notice an error in my postings please let me know or if more info is available.
Roy Botruff 120250369 Hello Kennetta, Sorry you do not like the photo. Unfortunately, I no longer have any other photos of Roy Botruff. I try to keep images for awhile but eventually all extras have to be deleted to make space for more. Currently I have 18,000 headstone photos to added. That photo was taken Nov 2013, a few months after I joined Find A Grave. I can reshoot the headstone when I return to that area. However, I live over 2 hours away and we have had another snow storm so it could be a couple weeks from now. You can either wait for me, or request another photo. Someone else might be able to get there before me. Hopefully the second time it will photograph better. As far as his bio, I added his dates but I'm not a researcher. I like taking photos but not researching so much. If you would like, I would happily transfer to you so you could complete his memorial. I will message you when I return to the cemetery and thank you for welcoming me, RAP
RE: Smith updates I am glad to add to all your fine work on Find A Grave. They are in good hands with you. Maybe someday a member of the Smith family will want to take on management of their memorials. While they are very distant relatives of mine I think someone else should manage them.
RE: Binschus You are so welcome. I really enjoy doing this and am especially happy when there actually IS a stone to photograph! (Sometimes you can find the grave easily enough on the city cemetery map, but alas, there is no marker. Sad.) Have a great weekend! Eileen
