"We actually don't fear death. We fear that no one will notice our absence, that we will disappear without a trace". (unknown)|
People come to Find a Grave for many reasons; genealogy, curiosity, closure. People volunteer on Find a Grave for many reasons; genealogy, curiosity, closure. Sadly, some are in a contest to see how many memorial pages they can put in, mistakes and all, and they hold tight to those pages they've created even if they aren't related to them at all…for them it's all about the numbers.
My friend, Melinda Fowler, and I started doing this for our own families and then it quickly became something bigger…it was about other people's families. We have gotten such satisfaction out of fulfilling requests and everyone is so grateful. But it is "we" who are grateful for the opportunity to honor your relatives. We're not in this for the count, but for the gratification in connecting relatives and for recognizing the need to say "I WAS HERE".
p.s. I take a lot of random pictures in the Danbury, CT and Westchester County, New York area. If I should happen to run into your family and you would like to take ownership, by all means let me know and it's done. Families should stay together!

Thank you so much for the picture of Michael Gould's headstone. This is my husband's great-grandfather, and we've never had a chance to visit the cemetery. It means a lot to have this information, it's even more interesting since the dates don't match those listed in his obituary. A bit of a mystery!

What a kind service that you do for others. We live in the center of the U.S. and would not be able to take a picture in New York so I appreciate that you took the time and effort to help. May I use the photo for memorial #166247986 on my ancestry.com family tree? Of course, you would be given credit. Thank you.

Twice in the last month, Find A Grave has astonished me. I was searching for the grave of my aunt's father, George Stankewicz, who I believe to have been buried in Kensico Cemetery in 1932. I turned up nothing, but accidentally found the grave of another distant family member who I wasn't even looking for. Today, searching for yet another individual, I came across a grave photo credited to you, and of course I recognized your name, fellow Lyco Class of 1972 member! THEN, I looked at your profile page and discovered you ramble around cemeteries in Westchester County, including Kensico! So if, by chance, you spot a grave for George Stankewicz with a dod in November 1932, please post a photo! Other names associated with him would be John Stankewicz (father) and Helen Goodman (sister).
I promised myself to do a lot of cemetery scouting in my retirement, and I have a list of photo requests for the Scranton and NE Pennsylvania area I'm following up on, so if you need anything in this vicinity, give me a shout.
