Bio and Links
Bio Photo I live in the Richmond, Virginia area and have been taking gravestone photos for over 3 years after I discovered what a great tool a digital camera is for that kind of work. I am trying to photograph as many of the cemetries as I can in the area. I also take my camera whenever I travel and and usually end up with photos from some distant cemeteries.

I am the volunteer coordinator for the clean up of East End Cemetery in Richmond. Please contact me if you are interested in helping with the clean up effort.

The vast majority of the gravestone pictures that I've entered are of people I don't know. I've entered them to help others. If you'd like me to fix, add to, and/or delete any of your family members please email me and I'll make the change as quickly as possible. If you would like a copy of the original picture, let me know and I will be glad to email it to you.

If you would like me to transfer an entry to you, please let me know. I will be glad to do that.

Please request transfers and updates/corrections through the Suggest a Correction function so that I make sure I update the correct entry.

Note that much of the CSA related info for burials at Hollywood Cemetery was provided by Scott Hutchinson.

John

Just wanted to stop by and say thank you for the work at this cemetery. Seeing long neglected history uncovered is exciting, and I'm so glad there are others who care and do so much to help preserve it. I appreciate your passion and effort! Bravo!!

I also saw a couple of different articles on what you are doing for this cemetery. It makes my heart full that someone else feels the way I do about the history of a cemetery and the people that are in it! I am clear on the other coast, but I'd help you in a heartbeat if I were there. Unfortunately, in the San Francisco Bay Area, there are a few cemeteries like this, but the politics of the towns they are in is impossible to get through - you can't just simply start fixing stuff without approval... drives me nuts.

Thank you for your dedication.

=)
