|Bio and Links|
I'm a genealogy enthusiast, a Civil War & U.S. military history buff and have always had a fascination with cemeteries. I'm also a USAF veteran of the Persian Gulf War, a second generation hillbilly and recently commissioned as a Kentucky Colonel. Being a career NCO (former USAF Technical Sergeant), I occasionally struggle with this. However, the stripes usually win.|
My current Find-A-Grave projects are locating graves and updating existing memorials for members of two of my great-great-grandfather's Civil War regiments (23rd Kentucky and 28th Ohio Infantries, both Union). I'm also very active at photographing Evergreen Cemetery in Southgate, Campbell County, Kentucky.
Most of my memorials are family, but I do enter military veterans and other graves that may catch my eye from time to time. If I have a memorial of a relative or friend of yours, send me a transfer request by way of a SAC. I don't follow FAG's transfer guidelines as if they were the Ten Commandments like some folks do. If you have ever refused to transfer the memorial of a relative or close friend to someone (simply because the guidelines say that "you don't have to") - shame on you. That's just plain mean. What a truly horrible person it takes to be selfish with the memory of someone's deceased friend or loved one.
Wikipedias definition of "guidelines":
A guideline is a statement by which to determine a course of action. A guideline aims to streamline particular processes according to a set routine or sound practice. By definition, following a guideline is never mandatory. Guidelines are not binding and are not enforced..
Please feel free to use my grave marker photos for your personal use. ½
NOTE TO EVERYONE ABOUT PHOTO REQUESTS
I always put some kind of note in the photo caption regarding the photo I took, usually the date and place taken. If there was no marker, I will take a photo of the lot (or lot marker, if available) and note it in the caption.

|Joyce Gilb Bucci||Re: Corporal Frank Gilb|
I noticed that you just added a birth year of 1841 for him. May I ask where you found that info? We've been trying to pin down an accurate year for him, but it seems to be all over the place. Any additional info you have would be appreciated.
|Libby Huffer||RE: Elsie R. Lindzy (photo)|
Thanks for getting back to me. I am trying so hard to find a photo of Elsie to show my daughter.
If you come across one, please let me know.
Ok, thank you. I will contact the other person with wrong photo.
Thanks for your help.

You added the photo on this memorial it is in black and white just like the one above it that is how I contacted you by clicking on your name. You better check again. It's there I just looked at it.

I am wanting to know why the photo attached is the same photo for mother? They cannot be the same photo for two different people. This is really going to cause a problem.

|DancinSue||RE: How are you doing this??!!|
Its quite simple actually. And quite tedious. when the office wouldn't give me headstone locations, I started photoing every headstone in the garden. Not done yet. Can't do it in the snow. Can't do it when the markers are underwater. Can't do it when its blazing hot. Third year running. What will I find next? and its fun to me.

Thank You for all your help in getting the pictures for Alice and Catherine
|Shirley Vittitoe||RE: Long time|
Always good hearing from you even if it is just a small note. I haven't been out taking pictures in a few months but with spring around the corner it shouldn't be much longer. I can't believe I haven't run into you somewhere.... or maybe I have and just didn't know it?
|Evelyn Linger Thorn||Thank you|

|J L||George Lynn|
