Bio and Links
I have been interested in genealogy for many years but am relatively new to Find A Grave so I don't know all the ins and outs of the web site and may violate some of the established protocols but please correct me if I stray from the norm.

Usually, when I am wandering through a cemetery, in search of a photo requested grave, I take random photos and then add them to FAG if they have not already been added. So please feel free to use any of my photographs.

Ahhh! What's a hundred years or so? Thank you very much. It now reads 1832 instead of 1932.

Thank you for your attempt to photograph my third-great grandmother's final resting place. I'm in a quandary as to where that might be, so I very much appreciate your effort to locate her.

for each person please use the edit tab for the request instead of using the 1 tab for requesting multiple transfers. i am not being difficult on purpose but that is the procedures and it also helps me keep track of "each transfer request". upon doing that i would be more than happy to transfer them to you. use asked for 3 transfers, go to each person and use the edit tab to request the transfer, please.

please use the edit tab to request any transfer for each person, that way i can keep track of what i transferred and what F.A.G. has transferred without my knowing. thank you

John -- Thank you so much for the headstone photo for Kenneth Stoner. I very much appreciate your time and effort in answering this request. We'd be sunk without the photo volunteers! --Sheila
