Bio and Links
Bio Photo I've been interested in genealogy for a long time and thoroughly enjoy the time I spend in cemeteries, whether it's for my own benefit or someone else's.

If anyone wants to use headstone pictures that I post, feel free -- no royalties required. I'm also happy to take any other pictures of the area that you would like -- let me know what you want and I will do my best.

If you have any additional information that you would like added to memorials that I manage, let me know. I want each memorial to be as complete and accurate as possible. I'm also happy to transfer memorials to relatives/friends who want to manage them, so please don't create a duplicate. I believe that memorials are best taken care of by the people who loved them.

My ultimate goal is to help photographically document all of the cemeteries in my area so that the existence of the people buried there is available to future generations and to ensure that people who can't visit on their own can still see a picture of the stone.


Note re Kirkland Cemetery: This is a heavily treed cemetery and many of the stones are covered in moss. If there is a particular stone that you would like re-photographed, feel free to let me know and I will see what I can do to clean up the stone.


Cemetery Projects:
-- Cedar Lawns (done)
-- Kirkland Cemetery (Done. Many, many unmarked graves in this cemetery. Many stones very deteriorated.)
-- Redmond Community Cemetery (Done)
-- Sunset Hills (The outside is complete, with only the Sunset Mausoleum left to finish)
-- Hillside and Upper Hillside (both Issaquah) I have walked both cemeteries, adding more recent memorials and looking for stones not yet photographed.


Although I have marked a cemetery as done, new graves may have been added and/or I may have missed a couple, despite my best efforts to be organized.

Hi Mary,

I was informed I had a duplicate memorial for this person, and was hoping you would be able to place another picture of his grave site to the correct one, memorial # 139496267, or I can copy and paste it there if you wish before I delete my memorial.

Many, many thanks for the incredible contributions & work you are doing here at Find-a-Grave. It is truly invaluable to individuals like me doing family research. ~ with appreciation, George Gaston

p.s. Oh, what odd names our ancestors were given over the generations!
