Bio Photo MY PHOTOS:

If you would like to use my grave images for any non-commercial purpose, I release them to you under a creative commons non-commercial license. No further permission is required or requested. If you'd like to leave me a public "thank you," I assure you that will put a smile on my face.


Most of my photos taken in 2013 or later have GPS coordinates embedded. If you want to find the coordinates of a grave, and the memorial does not display coordinates, you can check if the image has GPS metadata. How to do this:

1) Click on the small image so you get the big image page.

2) Right-click on the image in the big image page and choose "Copy image URL"

3) Go to Jeffrey's EXIF viewer utility.

4) Paste the URL (it should end in .jpg) into the "Image URL" field on Jeffrey's site and press the button "View Image at URL". It should give you a lot of data like this example.

5) Scroll down to where it says GPS Latitude and GPS Longitude. If the image has GPS coordinates, you will see them there.


My primary interests have been the historic cemeteries of Rehoboth, Swansea, and Providence, with excursions to Fall River and Somserset, and as far away as Maine and New York.

Of course, sometimes I make mistakes. Send me a correction by using the little "edit" button in the memorial. If your edits require more than a click, I may transfer the memorial to you.


I am interested in photography, genealogy, and history, not in maintaining databases. Therefore, I have a very liberal transfer policy. I'm glad to transfer any memorial to anyone who is sincerely interested in taking good care of it. I don't care if you are a relative or not. The only exceptions might be my own family members.

Emil Kirschenheiter / Cathedral Cemetery
I added pictures for Emil. I also created memorials for Emil and Anna, who I presume are his parents. They were located about 100 feet away.
