|Bio and Links|
I live in Texas but was born and raised in Southern Illinois.|
A lot of people here have helped me by photographing headstones of my family members that are far away from me now, so in order to give back to this online community, my husband and I go to local cemeteries and photograph the headstones.
If I've taken a picture of your family members headstone, I am the copyright holder. If it's a photo that I own, please feel free to use it in your own personal family tree such as Ancestry.com. Do not copy my photos to another Find A Grave memorial page. Just ask and I'll be happy to add it to your memorial as long as it's not a duplicate memorial or a "burial unknown" which are both against Find A Grave rules.
I won't link memorials to "Burial Unknown" memorials. Find A Grave's primary purpose is a grave registration site. If you don't know where the grave is, IT DOES NOT BELONG ON FIND A GRAVE.
I don't mind adding obits and other information to memorials, but please include the source of the information.
I won't add copy and paste online census or other indices information to memorials. I think it makes the memorial unattractive and about as personable as reading the nutritional information on a cereal box. You can re-write it and reference these sources and I will gladly add it to a memorial. See examples below of what I'll accept.

I'm experimenting using a 1000 lumen flashlight while taking photos of old weathered stones and those always hard to read, gray and white marble, and it's been a big help. Here's an example George Wesley Weatherford
