Bio and Links
Bio Photo I got interested in genealogy and FAG by watching my sister get very involved. I have finally decided to follow in her footsteps, though I doubt I will ever match her passion for the quest.

I regret not getting involved in FAG while in Alaska, as I could have done a lot of volunteer photography there.

I recently returned to my home state of Montana where I plan to make up for those lost opportunities. I plan to travel some, getting reacquainted with the state. I will always look for FAG photo requests in the areas where I'm heading.

My sister has tossed a gauntlet: Document Pioneer Cemetery in Jordan, Montana. This is where my mother, father, and grandmother rest, so this is a worthy cause.

Find a grave photo
I would like permission to download the photo you took of Edna May (Floerchinger) Daley grave marker at Hillside Cemetery for my personal file, full credit to you of course. I would also like permission for any other photo of my family that you also took that I might find.
I will use these photos in my personal genealogy database and to share with family members.
Thank you for all that you do,
Linda Futrell Rogers

Gravestone Photo Permission

I am happy to see that you photographed the gravestone of Anna Lynette Alford in Grantsdale Cemetery (Memorial# 113479180).

I would like to add this gravestone photo to the (non-profit) Alford American Family Association's collection of Montana Obituaries, where her obituary is (or will be) included. You can see the current collection at

May I have your permission to include your gravestone photos? If so, the photo caption will say:

Photo from [cemetery name, city, county, state]—

Permission granted by the photographer, Penny Jo [or your full name if you prefer]

And thanks so much for your gravestone photo work!

Best regards,
Pamela Alford Thompson (Find A Grave #47195155)

Calvary Cemetery, Great Falls, MT
This message isn't about any specific memorials or anything like that. I just wanted to commend you on the photo you added for this cemetery on Find A Grave. The image of the headstones with the prairie and mountains in the background is stunning and just so indicative of Great Falls, MT cemeteries for me. Just a beautiful photo. Thank you for adding it. :) Me'thinks I might need to re-visit this cemetery again.

Purple Hearts in Montana
to Penny Joe,
My dad was the recipient of a Purple Heart, perhaps two as he was wounded in the Battle of the Bulge in Germany during WWII. I think he was wounded twice but he died when I was young and my Mother couldn't remember for sure how many Purple Hearts he received. He is buried in the Bench Cemetery located on the Gerlach Ranch about 4 miles from Stockett Montana. If your interested in seeing this grave yard,I pretty sure that somebody from Stockett(about 20 SW of Great Falls) can direct you to it. Ask for Ron or Brian Guisti at the American Bar.
Sincerely, Frank Gerlach
