|Bio and Links|
I've lived in San Francisco for many years but was born and raised in the suburbs west of Denver, CO, (Lakewood and Golden). I've always loved exploring cemeteries, maybe a little too much, according to some family members. The beauty and history seem awesome to me. I've been serious about genealogy for about 7 years and love the search, searching Dunn, Webster, Campbell in the US and Juhl, Johnsen, Jorgensen, Larsen in Denmark.|
I particularly like photographing in veteran's cemeteries, being a Vietnam vet myself. I live just a few miles from both Golden Gate National and San Francisco National. SF National is my favorite because of the unique location with majestic views of SF Bay and the Golden Gate Bridge. During my rather brief US Army career I was stationed for awhile at Letterman Army Hospital (now defunct) which was just a 5-minute walk from SF National. I used to stroll around the cemetery grounds to reduce work stress, and often ate a sack lunch there, so going back is always pleasant and nostalgic.
Feel free to use my photos for your genealogical projects. That's primarily why I took them.

Thanks Richard. Great photo, and thanks for going the extra mile.
|Anonymous||Mike Powers photo?|
Hi Richard. I just got an email from find a grave that mentions that you have posted a picture of Mike Powers, however, when I go to the site, I do not see the photo. Could there be a problem with the posting? Thanks again for taking the time to get this photo as it is very much appreciated.

About the crows on their headstone's. These are some of my favorite pictures. I have captured all kinds of wildlife at the Auburn cemeteries. Even one of a turkey on top of a black granite headstone. Squirrels, a variety of local birds of the Sierra Nevada Foothills.
Thank you for the compliment.
Hope you have a Happy Holloween!

Thanks, Richard for your note about your photo. You are quite welcome to repost your photo if you'd like.
I have been unsure if the gates at the National Cemetery are open during the Gov't closure. I should have time to find out tomorrow, but I'll have plenty of markers to photograph.
thank you -JHS
Sorry, I uploaded a photo for him a couple of weeks ago, not realizing that you had claimed him from the request list. So I deleted my photo today...please add yours. My apologies. Richard

My husband said to tell you that he, too, is a Vietnam vet.

Thank you so much for adding the monument photo for my husband's grandfather.

I just wanted to let you know that I am very impressed by the photos you have taken of the markers for this cemetery! I have posted nearly 30,000 photos for this cemetery: I humor myself into thinking that I have become somewhat knowledgeable about how to take a good photo there to optimize the legibility of the photos....
I'm impressed that you seem to have mastered all my tricks in much less time than it took me!
I'd be interested to know if you might be interested in helping us to systematically photograph (or post photos for) the entire cemetery. We've made tremendous progress over the past 18 months and now the cemetery is nearly 50% photographed. Every month or so we post another 3000 photos... My bio contains more information on the project. We could use a good man like you!
Thanks again for the good work you have done on the cemetery!
|Anthony and Jessica King||RE: Charles and Grace Segerlunc|
You are very welcome. It was our pleasure. We were a bit surprised to see such a big stone and in such good shape, given their death dates. Impressive!

Thank you for posting the headstone photo. It provided just enough data to confirm that he is the Rough Rider I was searching for and allowing me to continue my research.

Thank you so much for taking a photo of his grave. I appreciate your help!
