|Have picked up where my father left off on learning more about my family. Have been doing genealogy research for about 2 years now. My family research is Etzel, Rogers, Lias, Rea, Brown, Osam, Ragsdale, Weaver, Holiman. I know how important it is to find information on a family member & have found Find A Grave a big help.|
If I have a Memorial you would like transferred to you, let me know. When I am searching for grave marker(s) as a photo volunteer, I take photos of surrounding graves if they have same last name & post it to Find A Grave. I just hope this helps other people in their search for family members.

|FrauJulia||RE: How did you do that?|
Glad you asked! I love sharing this, because it will hopefully stop people from using chalk or other harmful methods of obtaining the grave info.
We use an LED flashlight. The one we used for a long time is the Nitecore EA4 LED flashlight, $69 from Battery Junction.
My husband just upgraded to a more expensive, higher power light last month. You could try any powerful LED flashlight (similar to our Nitecore which is 860 lumens) though, and see what results you get.
Our tips for this:
On sunny days, create a shadow - usually I will stand over the grave, hubby will shine the light on it and I will photo. I read where one woman brings an umbrella with her to the cemeteries, to create a shadow for the photos.
Shine from the left - We get the best results when shining from left to right. Just hold the light at the left edge of the grave, shining across the front, and you will see those letters and numbers just 'pop' right out at you.
We have used aluminum foil in the past, but since using the LED lights, have not had to 'foil' a grave again.
I hope this help you and I'd love to hear how it works out for you if you give it a try!
Keep in touch,

Thank you so much for finding the Armstrongs and posting the photos. They look great!
I apologize for any inconvenience; I will try to watch the photo request page more closely. Thank you for your efforts on Find A Grave.

Thanks so much for locating and photographing this gravestone for me. I know it takes time to do it and I appreciate it so much. We live 2000 miles away and wouldn't see it otherwise.
Lovely photo. Thank you so much.
|Shawdau||RE: Phebe Rea Painter|
I've been reading over the Painter information on the Internet adding details to the memorials. Palemon is called Phelon and Arion is called Orion, but I used the spellings from their stone. Lots of family notes from "The Painter History" by Sarah Angeline Painter Kern (1971). If you could find that on the Internet, (IF you don't already have it!) I think you would find a lot of helpful information in it.
