I'm a photographer and I like taking pictures of interesting headstones, and headstones with interesting names or inscriptions.
I'm generally a polite, genial sort. If you ask me to transfer management of one of your relatives' memorials, I probably will -- just state your relationship, and be polite and patient. If it's one of my relatives, I probably won't, unless you're more closely related.
I believe that Find a Grave is a great collective resource for genealogists and gravers alike. As a general rule, I don't get hung up on who owns what, and I'll never be overly proprietary about memorials; if you want to add something pertinent to one of mine, please feel free. (One caveat: my photographs are all copyrighted to me. If I see them being used elsewhere, I will not be polite or genial about it. In advance, thanks for respecting that.)
Baden-Powell monument, Kensal Green Sorry to trouble you, but I wonder if you can tell exactly when your photo of the Baden-Powell family monument in Kensal Green was taken? As it is now subsiding to the north-east, it would be interesting to know the date of this photo, as a tracking aid by comparison to a recent snap. Thank you for your time and attention.
Photo shoot On September 26 we are getting together for a photo shoot to get as much of a cemetery photographed. We start at 9 am and usually don't go more than a couple hours. This time it will be at Mount Lebanon on St.Charles Rock Road, near Lindbergh. Please join us if you can
Jacob Meyer memorial Thank you so much for photographing the monument for Jacob Meyer (Myer)! He was my great great grandfather. It is so nice to have this connection to him. Thanks and warm regards, Alice Gansfield, Boulder, Colorado
April 27th at Calvary Our annual spring gathering of gravers this year is at Calvary. Working on the hard part of the requests. Section 5 and 16. It requires a lot of walking and good eyes. We start at 9 am and will be way in the back of the cemetery. The more legs and eyes, the more we get done. It usually does not last more than a couple hours. Would love your help if you can.
Anna Coffelt Hopkins Thank you very much for taking a photo of Anna Hopkins gravestone! I really appreciate it. Since her husband is also listed on the gravestone, I have created a memorial for him as well. I was wondering if you could upload your photos again to his memorial this time.
