Bio and Links
I love helping others with the photographs of memorial markers. I usually photograph with my children in tow, which is a great conversation to pass on about respect and courtesy in a cemetery environment. Who would have thought that a young one WANTS to be a part of the flag placements on Memorial Day and enjoys sweeping headstones?
It is also informative and exciting for me to talk with the cemetery directors and managers -- who are troves of information! I am proud of our contributions for others. I enjoy photography and genealogy. I have time each week to take photos at local cemeteries and hope to accumulate a list of desired photos and then make a day of photography for the find-a-grave users.

I find it exciting to be able to help people find their family members and sustain those records respectfully and with care. I would be pleased to help take photos for you and am additionally in the process of indexing some small rural cemeteries in my area for records preservation.

Let me help you with a quick photo!

Hi, I hope I'm not stepping on toes.
I'm photographing markers for the church, and the photo I took in the autumn doesn't have all the black marking that was showing in the springtime when you took your photo. So, I posted a new picture, and you can decide if you want to keep or remove the other.

Thank you for looking for Jerry's grave marker. I may have the wrong information for you. I appreciate your offer to take a photo of the area, but that's not necessary.

Thanks again,

Hello Sweetcheet,

Wanted to drop you a line to say a BIG THANK YOU for going that extra mile to find the tombstone for Charles H. Carpenter. Your efforts are greatly appreciated!!!! :) I know what a disappointment it can be to search for someone and find an empty plot... But the photo you provied looks like it would be a nice place to spend eternity... Under a Nice Shade tree...
even without a tombstone.

Thanks Again, A fellow Grave Hunter,
