Bio and Links
Bio Photo I've been interested in genealogy and photography for a couple decades now - thanking my mom and grandmother for the passion to learn about my past. Taking photos of headstones is both relaxing and challenging, especially in older cemeteries.

My family takes photos as we visit cemeteries around our area, and as we visit places for research. We try to find requests while we're visiting as well.

I'm using this area to provide permission to use any of my images on Find-A-Grave for personal family trees. (I hope other folks will likewise give permissions for personal use of their images on here).

Myrtle Viola "Granny" Miles
Did you know this lady? She was very well known in this area. She would help everybody and even take care of their children. She was a very good friend of my family.

Hi Robert,

I made the links to Florine's parents as per your request. I see that you manage her mom's memorial and are likely related in some way. I am not related (taking photos of headstones as I visit my own family). I have transferred Florine's memorial to your care so you can add more information as you find it.
