Bio and Links
While searching for my own ancestor's graves, I enjoy taking pictures of nearby graves and try to focus on obscure or easily missed markers and getting them uploaded so they won't be lost to time. Being a military family, we particularly like to record military markers.

We also try to fulfill some of the many photo requests at the big urban cemeteries near our home. However, we will no longer contact cemeteries to get burial location information - we have endured enough sales pitches! Accurate section and grave location information in large cemeteries really increases the odds of the grave being found and it always helps to know if there really is a marker on the grave.

Marker photography has been a learning process and hopefully my photos have improved, however, it can be a challenge at times due to environmental conditions (sun, shadows, glare, etc.) and cemetery maintenance standards (weeds, leaves, debris). While we try to get good pictures, we are not in the business of cleaning or weeding markers. It does appear that there is a job opportunity there for someone.

It is not about numbers of entries owned for us, so if we recorded a memorial of a member of your family, we will usually have no problem with transferring maintenance to a closer family member. Or if you need a picture removed to add a better one, just let us know.

Remembering those who have passed on is an honor and hopefully along the way we have helped someone find the final resting place of a lost loved one.

RE: William J. Danaher
You're right - she, Josephine, William H. and Mary Frances Danaher Drummond were the children of William J. and Frances. I hope to get them linked soon.
Thanks again!

RE: AJ Frasher Cemetery
He is not a Frazier, but we think he was a relative of Gail mcKenzie's step daughter. He had no.money and no place to be buried. Rick will contact Gail and get a name and more info Rick is the caretaker of the cemetery. All a labour of love at no cost to the cemetery fund. He accepts only donations. He was appreciative of the comments from Monna Kay that you had said the cemetery was in excellent condition.

I wanted to ask you when do you think you took that photo? When we were there the metal holder was there, but no name was in it. Glad you took it when you did.
