*********************************
I am an avid amateur genealogist, researching many different lines for both family and friends. I include all collateral lines, so my area of interest is extensive.

I have added many memorials in the hope of helping a fellow researcher. Permission is granted for personal use of any of the photos I have added, please just cite the F.A.G. memorial number and cite me as the photographer. This includes ancestry.com - it's so disappointing to look at a public family tree and find one of my photographs without mention of the photographer.

I decline to give permission to use my photos for resale, for profit, or to upload to a different web site. Do not copy them to other grave related sites such as BillionGraves.com.

PLEASE remember the volunteer nature of FAG and be polite when writing. People have been less than understanding recently, wondering why the information they sent hadn't yet been added.

Dates of birth & death as well as linking to parents can been added through the automated system. If I've missed your email about additions to a memorial, just ask a second time. We're all human, no need for attitude.

TIPS FOR PHOTOGRAPHING GRAVESTONES by Maureen Taylor

[for full article, go to Genealogy.com] http://www.genealogy.com/64_gravestones_print.html

"Technique:

Since you are creating a record of the cemetery in addition to photographing a single stone you should take several images of the same marker. For example:

1. One showing the whole cemetery.

2. Shoot an image that includes the closest stones and provides context.

3. Photograph the whole gravestone so that inscription and carving are visible.

4. Make sure to take at least one picture where the inscription fills the camera frame.

Unless you are extremely lucky, most of the stones you want to photograph will not be straight due to ground settling. In the case of leaning stones, tilting the camera should eliminate the slant."

Our greatest treasure is our family, not only the warm circle around the Christmas tree, but all those whose lives gave us life, and those who will carry our love into the future. ~ Anonymous
************************

It avails not, neither time or place—distance avails not;
I am with you, you men and women of a generation, or ever so
many generations hence;
I project myself—also I return—I am with you, and know how it is.

Just as you feel when you look on the river and sky, so I felt;
Just as any of you is one of a living crowd, I was one of a crowd;
Just as you are refresh'd by the gladness of the river and the bright flow,
I was refresh'd... ~ "Crossing Brooklyn Ferry" by Walt Whitman

Perform, then, this one act of remembrance before this Day passes - Remember there is an army of defense and advance that never dies and never surrenders, but is increasingly recruited from the eternal sources of the American spirit and from the generations of American youth. ~ W.J. Cameron

For death is no more than a turning of us over from time to eternity. ~ William Penn
************************

“Those we love remain with us for love itself lives on, and cherished memories never fade because a loved one’s gone. Those we love can never be more than a thought apart, for as long as there is memory, they’ll live on in the heart.”
– Author Unknown
************************

Those we hold closest to our hearts never truly leave us. They live on in the kindness they have shared and the love they brought into our lives. ~ Author Unknown
************************

Perhaps they are not stars in the sky, but rather openings where our loved ones shine down to let us know they are happy. ~ Anonymous

Oh, Thanks for the "Fantastic Stone Photo" comment. I sweep hard, douse all (Metallic) stones with Super Stone Brite and shoot them wet on sunny days only.

I take 12 gallons of Super Stone Brite with me during a photo run.
You can get this product from.....Your Kitchen Faucet.

The only edit I got was to change Donald Allen's father, Edward Cowan Allen, to unknown.

What basis is your claim that Donald's father is unknown.

Claudia "CLoudy" Strong
I am a bit confused about your entry on this person. First of all SHE is listed as male.
Second, I see that she has a stone in Jenny Lind, but she also has a stone at our cemetery - Ione Public Cemetery which she is recorded as buried here. Obviously one is for a memorial only. Do you have any documentation to support that she is buried in Jenny Lind? I would love to know so we could correct our records. - Thank you, Carole Meltzer, Office Manager Ione Public Cemetery

Hey Personna,
Seeing that you did sponsor Patricia Gimbel, and I do Thank You for that).

I wanted you to return to 145332475, and check out her newest stone photo. Email me when you do, so I can delete the old photo, (that I'm not too proud of).
