Bio and Links
Bio Photo I live in Chicago, Illinois and am working on records for my father's and mother's families primarily.
I enjoy taking photographs of grave sites for photo requests. My priorities are sites with a location provided then by request date. Many places have requests that are several years old. You are welcome to use any of the photos I post as you wish. Requests for photo files or transfers are welcome. Email or use the edit tab on a memorial.

Please provide a location in the cemetery for your photo request. Contacting the cemetery is usually successful at obtaining a location. Info about the presence of a grave marker may also be available and is helpful. Locating unmarked graves can be very difficult.

RE: Matilda Loveridge
Thank you for that information. All I had to go on was a census record. Emma was her sister and helped raise her daughter who was a young girl when her mother died. Thanks again for that helpful information.

Wow, it looks like Jacob and Lina are buried in a forgotten section of the cemetery! Thank you so much for your efforts in getting these photos for me! It is much appreciated!

Thanks for letting me know about George's wife Ann. I added her. I wouldn't have minded if you wanted to add her yourself.

Thanks again

Thanks a lot for going to Graceland!
Thanks for taking a photo of Bryan Lathrop. He deserves to have recognition!

Hope you can photograph the other 5 million graves at Graceland! (Just kidding, sort of). Thanks, RL
