Bio and Links
Bio Photo Search for old tombstones to photograph. Enjoy the history behind them.

Don't always have time to fix my typos, so allow me some leeway (ie many days) in making corrections if you spot them.

If I post a photograph on one of your entries and you do not like this, simply remove it, no need to inform me with a wordy e-mail.

RE: Job Winslow
That would be fine, if you want to transfer ownership to me. I will enter the information that I have on the individuals.

Do you need anything from me, in order to transfer ownership?

RE: Strykersville Cemetery
If you have no attachment to them I will gladly accept them. It may interest you to know that I have traced Saloma's family back to the Mayflower. I was surprised because no one in the family ever knew we had an ancestor on that ship.
Thanks, debra

Thank you so much for the beautiful photos of Garrett and Saloma Luce Stryker's gravestones. My mother is a Stryker and delights every time I find another of her ancestors in any database. Again Thank you and keep up the good work.

Also, thank you for the beautiful photo of Cornelia's grave marker. Your camera really brings out the wording, including names of both husbands.
