Bio and Links
Bio Photo PLEASE REQUEST TRANSFERS.... If you are related and can enhance the memorial by adding additional information, please request transfer, giving me your relationship. No transfers just for collection of a particular family name.

If you request a transfer, be sure you are committed to a lifetime of maintaining the memorial. Unfortunately a few of my older transfers are maintained by contributors who no longer respond.

IMPORTANT: When sending information to add, give source of information. Without sources, sorry, but changes will not be made. With new quick edits, this is still important. Unless evident on memorial, please use the other suggestion and include source. Please note that online trees, such as ancestry's, are not valid sources unless documentation is attached to the tree.

We've searched many graveyards, seen stones that were in such disrepair, and wondered what would happen to them as time marched on. This site is a wonderful way to preserve, if not the actual stone, at least a replica by photograph for future genealogists. Our eldest son has also gained in interest in photographing the stones and we have enjoyed working these cemeteries together and searching out requests.

If you have taken better gravestone photos that what we have posted, please post yours and send a message - we will review and delete ours if appropriate.

I may try to contact contributors if I question an edit. For those who hide themselves completely by not showing email or allowing comments, my only choice is to decline. To me credibility is in question if it comes from a contributor who does not have enough pride in their work to identify themselves and provide a way to be contacted.

Happy graving to all!

---Linda & family

October 2014 - Our son has taken on the project of photographing all the stones at Cumberland Valley Memorial Garden in Carlisle. I will be posting these photos as quickly as possible. He has also helped me photograph other local cemeteries -- a big THANKS goes out to him.

What a surprise to find the message in my inbox that the memorial you created for Martha Ditmer has been transferred to me. Again, thanks so much and for the wonderful work you do.

Thank you very much for finding and taking the picture of the marker for me. Hopefully next time I make it out there I will get to the Cumberland Memorial Gardens. Hope all is well, Jessica

I do hope the PA death records are updated.

Actually I've been wandering around 19th century old Banffshire and Aberdeenshire working on my Scottish kin in the meantime. Some interesting things including a couple of cases of "nothing new under the sun"!!!

Cheers, Barry

Thanks much for the photos on John Abram Ditmer and his wife Anna Eckroth's memorials. Much appreciated.

I've just about run out of Shatto and Shatto related people to work on in PA. Have run through the death certificates, most recent additions to, etc.

Best, Barry
