Bio and Links
Bio Photo ******From here on out please send me proof with your edits. I have been getting a tremendous amount of mistakes sent to me.
Most of these people are my family that I am working on as time permits. I have the
accurate data and will enter it when I can.
We need to keep these memorials accurate.
I had someone yell at me for making a mistake on his grandfather's memorial. WELL that was yet another edit sent to me from someone else! Since then, I have been checking all edits and was pretty shocked to see how many are wrong.
Don't forget the words "Thank you".
They go a LONG way! And the words "You're welcome" don't hurt either.
Did you know? When you put in an edit and someone ignores it, the memorial will automatically edit itself in 21 days. The only way it won't is if the person declines it.

1) PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE NO dates or your name through the pictures. This is REALLY tacky!
They look awful and are SO unnecessary!! This is about them, not us.

2) No chopped off around the sides. There should be 'outdoors' around all 4 sides. I want to see what the stone looks like! Some stone pics were chopped to just show the name & date.
This looks awful, get the whole stone in the picture! Many people chop the top of the stone off...why?

3) If there's a tall stone with the info on the side, take a picture of the whole stone and then a picture of the writing.

4) The stone picture looks best if it's taken in front of the stone, not at an angle. A trick I use to keep my reflection off the stone: I stand behind another stone and use the zoom on the camera.

5) No 'postage stamp' sized pictures. Set your
camera to take regular sized pictures.

6) Please take the time to brush the leaves and grass clippings off the stone.

It's not all about 'point and shoot' to hurry up. Take some time taking the pictures. Let's honor our dead as best as we can by taking beautiful pictures. These pictures will most likely be the only ones on the internet for generations to come!

RE: Michael Fagan
You're welcome.
There are so many names sometimes its hard to keep track. Others have sent me edits for duplicates. I hope most of the names are added.

RE: Selinsky photo requests @ Assumption
Yup, I agree with you about Woodlawn. They just never seemed to get their act together providing locations for me in a timely manner so I don't bother any more with them. It's a shame that all those requests will just pretty much sit there. And yes, the girls at Assumption are wonderful!
~ I saw a memorial for a PVT Joseph Selinsky and since I snapped his photo while looking for the others I uploaded it.

RE: Selinsky photo requests @ Assumption
Yes, still doing requests (keeps me outta trouble...usually;)
I simply gave the names to the office staff at Assumption and that was the location they gave me. I did find a Selinsky but it was PVT Joseph Selinsky which I added a photo to his memorial. Did not find John or Mary.
