Thanks to a lady named Annette and the photo she placed on Find A Grave, I was able to break through a brick wall in my quest to document the family tree. Since then I've placed a number of requests. I am very grateful to the folks who took pictures and filled those requests.

I pretty much limit myself to taking pictures in the San Francisco National Cemetery in the Presidio of San Francisco. It's an absolutely beautiful place with lawn that would make any gardener envious and with breathtaking views of the Golden Gate Bridge and San Francisco Bay.

If there is anything I put up on this web site that needs correcting or that you would like me to remove, please let me know. If you would like me to transfer a memorial to you, please let me know. Be sure you are logged in and then use the edit tab. With the exception of my own family's memorials, I would be happy to make the transfer.

RE: Backus George # 3519875
I just deleted them. Did you have any better luck today with photos?

I visited three old cemeteries here in southern Oregon and found a couple that had stones that could not be read and so I did foil rubbings. It worked well. I will have to visit more of the cemeteries that have old headstones that are no longer able to be read.

Sound like it has a mind of its own, no problem.

RE: Originally buried at Ft. Klamath, Oregon
Hi Carol,

Yes, I work an odd shift that makes for odd hours. Perfect for working on Find A Grave :o)

Pictures that need to be added to the Fort Klamath memorials:
Infant Backus, 52385692
Lawrence Mooney, 52383223
**I added pictures to both

Pictures that need to be deleted from the San Francisco memorials:
Jeremiah M Crooks, 3524114
Stephen T Hallock, 3528837
S A Smith, 95957594
**These are the ones you added and so you will have to delete them.

Yes, I've also found that there are techniques to photographing headstones. I've found it addictive and I am now doing day trips with a friend to find old cemeteries.

I tried aluminum foil rubbings on difficult to read stones for the first time. Here's the first one I did, it was at Ft. Klamath 27596019 Just a challenge to get a good photo and not a good idea try it on a windy day. Have you tried it before?

Thanks again for your help and good luck on updating your photos.

RE: Originally buried at Ft. Klamath, Oregon
Hi Carol,

I went through tonight and deleted all my pictures from SFNC and added the composites to all of the memorials at Ft. Klamath. Let me know if I missed any.

RE: Originally buried at Ft. Klamath, Oregon
Hi Carol,

That looks really nice and I think it's a great idea. I will go back in and delete the pictures I posted and then do you want to add the composite photos?

I've not used the virtual cemetery feature yet, I'll have to read about how to use it.

Thanks for your help!

RE:Transfer of memorial for Gladys Chubbuck # 51799359
Thank you, Carol for the transfer!

I appreciate the offer to remove the photos which you took, but I would like you to leave them. It's a reminder of your efforts. It's also a tribute to the hard work which J.R. Reagan and his construction crew at the San Francisco National Cemetery are doing to preserve the memorial headstones of those who served and put their lives on the line.

Thanks again.
