I have worked on my family history since the early 1980s. My idea of a perfect vaction would be to travel all over the world visiting cemeteries! Since I can't do that, I appreciate all the nice people who have photographed graves I may never get to see. My family surnames are; Dorei, McAferty, Killoren, Boutwell, Hayes, Sherman, Brown, Barnett, Young, Withams, Trompeter, Hennessy, Wilcox, Niles, Palmer, Holmes, and...well...many more. :>)
I have tried to add photos which show the inscriptions plainly. Sometimes when I get home from a cemetery trip, the photos are not what I had hoped for. Please feel free to add your own photos to memorials I have created if they show the inscriptions in a better light. Sometimes it is difficult to match a stone that only lists a first name with the family monument. Please email if I have mistakenly matched someone up with the wrong monument! If a book of cemetery inscriptions was available, I used it to verify my memorials.
One reason I add memorials is my wish that people will locate their family members through Findagrave, and want to take over management of the memorial. So, I am happy to transfer memorials for family members. If you would like a transfer, or if you would like me to correct a memorial, please use the "edit" tab on the upper righthand corner of the memorial, use the suggestion link, and include your Findagrave contributor number.
