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: photo request
Hello. It would be interesting to know if there ever were markers. It would also be interesting to see the lot. I feel like you are going to a lot (no pun intended) of trouble. If you ever happen to be near there I would appreciate a picture.
The Pettigrew family was a prominent family early in my town's history.
Thank you for all of your effort. NovemberSkies

Helping those who live so far away from their deceased loved ones is not only a selfless act of kindness on your part, it is a cherished and priceless gift that you give to us. Your time and effort are much appreciated; you're an asset to this web site!

I can't thank you enough for the photos of the DeVolt brothers' headstones. It's so nice to see two Civil War Veterans documented by Memorial Day... many thanks!
