I started going to cemeteries in geneology searches. As I went thru the cemeteries I realized how much the stones wear down (and all the other factors - cemeteries not being kept up, vandalism, etc) and that someday you wouldn't be able to read those stones.|
I also realized what great things people were doing by taking pics, and volunteering to take pics, for people who were looking for their family and couldn't get to the area.
So...I starting taking pictures myself. Now that we have digital cameras all it costs me is my time. And the results are great...people find family they're looking for and most importantly, those that were buried in the cemetery and the stones were put up for are not forgotten.

|Carol Darling||RE: Cortland Rural photo requests|
Thanks, but I really wanted to see them myself; they are distant relatives.... :-)
Thank you for your time and efforts
locating this grave. I was disappointed to learn he has no stone, as is the case sometimes.

|Joyce N.||RE: James Patrick Fagan|
Thanks for the transfer. My mother remembered him very well. He fought in the Civil War under two names. He enlisted in the infantry as Patrick James Fagan for the first 2 years. And re-enlisted in the cavalry for the last two as James Patrick and stayed with that name for the rest of his life. Just thought you might like to know. Thanks again! Joyce

He is my great-grandfather. I hope you don't mind that I added a pic of him. It would be great if you would transfer management of this memorial to me. Thank you. Joyce

|Frank K.||Find your entries|
...is there's a way to do a search on here for entries I've made but not put birth dates in for?
You can do it by cemetery, but if you didn't upload hundreds of memorials in that specific cemetery, it's often easier just to go through it quicly and find the ones missing the birth dates.
