Hi there,

On the side of researching my own family tree and visiting graves of my distant relatives, I also am a tombstone photographer. I enjoy making a list of all of the unphotographed memorials in one cemetery and photographing the whole cemetery. At the moment, I have finished photographing the Potomac United Methodist Church. I am currently working on Parklawn Memorial Park in Rockville, I will be continually adding and updating memorials and photos. I am much more active during the summer months due to the fact I am in school.

If anyone needs a family member's grave photographed in the Northwest D.C. and Maryland area (this also includes Arlington National Cemetery) let me know! Happy to help.

If you have any problems or would like to transfer one of my memorials, send me a message

Many thanks for your headstone photography. I know what's involved in traveling to the cemetery, finding the plots, sometimes cleaning the headstones, taking the pictures, and uploading them; all for a perfect stranger. I really appreciate your efforts.
Thanks and best regards, Karl Hamlin
PS The photo allowed me to identify his spouse as well

Windsor, Alvin Richard Sr & Jr - 67120450 & 69579583
Dear Brian Love,

While helping to enhance Melvin Engene 'Gene' Windsor's recent memorial, # 134902345, I found his parents and brother's memorials.

During my review of Sr's memorial, I noticed you had accidentally posted Jr's marker photo to Sr's. I noticed a photo of a shared tombstone on Mrs Ruth Windsor's memorial by Jack Galuardi, that would be appropriate should you not have a photo of Sr's available.

Thank you for all your Find A Grave efforts.

Always, in Find A Grave brotherhood,

Otto and Helene Graeser
Hi Brian,

I used several sources for the information I have on Find A Grave regarding Otto and Helene Graeser. Census records give the date of immigration. I also have a book of church records from Salem Lutheran Church.

The state of Missouri has a fantastic resource available on-line. Death certificates from 1910 to 1962 are available free of charge at the Missouri archives web-site.

When I created the memorials for the Graesers in 2009, Missouri only had death certificates available from 1910-1959. They keep adding a year about every 12 months or so. Since the Graesers died in 1960 and 1962, their death records are now available. As a result, I found them both and up-dated their memorials this afternoon.

I also went through some more Salem church records that I found recently and was able to come up with more complete names for their children. (The children were confirmed at Salem Lutheran Church.)

Hope this helps!
