Please use the edit tab to ask for updates. Please use the free-form entry ('Suggest any other change or correction') only if there is no category for your change.

For transfers, please use the edit tab, then 'Suggest any other change or correction'.

Transfer requests for 'all surnames in a cemetery' will not be processed. A separate transfer request must be submitted for each memorial.

I am retired so I have time to walk through the cemeteries and take pictures. In mid July 2010 I started a project to record as many memorials for the cemeteries in my county (Broome, NY) with pictures that I could. This project is done. I have moved on to cemeteries in Susquehanna PA and Tioga NY.

The following link will show all the cemeteries in the surrounding counties photographed (by me and others!) and added to Find A Grave:

Broome County NY Cemeteries
Tioga County NY Cemeteries
Susquehanna County PA Cemeteries
Have started Chemung County - no map yet.

Cemeteries Statistics as of 05/15/2016 (by County): ...... # cems . # Mems ... w/photo
Broome ........... 149 .. 190,882 .. 177,237 (92.8%)
Chemung ........ 125 .. 118,576 .... 45,136 (38.1%)
Susquehanna . 195 .... 59,514 .... 46,757 (78.6%)
Tioga .............. 104 .... 66,513 .... 57,391 (86.2%)


If I have added memorials for any of your relatives, please thank me by visiting a nearby cemetery and add the gravestones there for others to find their relatives.

You have my permission to use any picture taken by me for private uses. For public use, you may use them as long as I am given credit. For commercial use, please contact me.

If any of the memorials I have created need updates, please contact me using the edit tab. If any are a relative of yours and you want to manage them, let me know and I will transfer them. I am related to only a few of the memorials I created so putting them in a relative's care is a good thing. Please use the edit tab and SAC to ask for a transfer or update.

RE: Altheda Johnson Bennett
I was trying to determine if I was looking at the correct father and mother - there are several
Purl/Purley Johnson and I was trying to make sure I was connecting the proper families .

Altheda Johnson Bennett
Hello - I added the obit for this person and am wondering if there is a mix up by the listings for her mother & father; as the children and siblings do not seem to agree with what is listed in the obit.
I will leave a message with the person who made the memorial for the mother and father also.

Edna Beckhorn/Woodlawn cemetery
I would like to thank you for the photograph of Edna Beckhorn and attaching it to her memorial.
I had previously requested a photo with unsucess.
The researcher twice claimed their was no marker and removed my request.

Your time and effort is much appreciated.

Thank you for the transfer of Ora Larrabee. She was a neighbor and sister-in-law of my 'grandfather" (my mother's guardian).

RE: Treleavans
Got Nellie back, but while the obit is posted the dates still haven't been updated on the original memorial. Will re-submit, and when they go through I will delete. When I get a chance I will check to make sure that the changes on the other memorials went through.

Thank you, Paul, for providing a photo of my 2nd great grandfather's headstone.

I moved from NYS 34 yrs ago, so your help is a great gift!
