Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am just a regular girl who also happens to be a taphophile. I have been a "tombstone tourist" since I was a kid. My mother loved visiting old cemeteries, so the tradition continues in me. :)

I do not know all of the people buried in these plots (although some are my ancestors), but thanks to "Find a Grave" someone out there may benefit from my pictures. Taking photographs of gravestones of people that I have no connection to may seem like a strange pastime to some, but it is one that I enjoy. I have always loved cemeteries, even as a little girl.

I apologize in advance if some of the gravestones that I have taken pictures of are difficult to read. Many of them are quite old and and are deteriorating. Also, I am still considered a "noob" graver, so please bear with me! ;) I have gotten a better camera, so hopefully the pictures will be better from here on out! I do not mind transferring management of any burial records that I have added. Also, you do NOT need to ask me for permission to use my photos for ancestry research or for use elsewhere. I posted these photos to hopefully help people in their genealogical search; the photos that I take are not copyrighted. Feel free to use them however you wish! :)

I am from Canada too but I live out in Calgary now. I grew up near Ottawa.

When I was back home visiting my Dad in July, I visited various cemeteries near where my ancestors were. I am slowly working on uploading hundreds of photos from Merrickville Union Cemetery.

It was my first time ever photographing graves so I was a little haphazard on what I took.

I got my sister onto this and she is on a mission to do photo requests for strangers. She says she has more fun finding other people's requests than her own :)

If you go to the Throoptown cemetery beware the poison ivy! :)

Nice to "meet" you!

Thank you so much for taking the photograph of the Flatters family memorial! Volunteers like you are what makes long distance genealogy possible. Your kindness and dedication to help others are appreciated.
