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: 67511467 Adolph Charlier
Ok, thanks. I'll call the cemetery then and/or put in a photo request. She'd be "mother" and it's hard to believe the family would've simply left her out!

Thank you for the Kingman family transfers. I've updated their info and linked them together.

67511467 Adolph Charlier
Hi Paul. Just wondering if you know anything else about the plots around Adolph. I'm researching Adolph's wife's family, and she isn't in Find A Grave. Her name was Laura (or Lura), maiden name Beach. If she's next to Adolph somewhere, it'd be great to get her in Find A Grave. Thanks!

When time and weather permit would you be so kind to see if Joseph Dold's (memorial # listed above) wife if buried next to him and what her name and birth/death dates are. That or do you have the number of someone I can reach at that cemetery. Any info you could offer would be appreciated. Thank you.

Looks like you triple-clicked or something when adding the picture, if that is what can cause multiple pictures to be added. (I think double-clicking can cause duplicate messages or SACs to be sent...)

Thanks for moving your picture and deleting yours. If that other person hadn't sent all the corrections and additions to mine, I would have just deleted mine. And when the time comes that you're working on getting rid of duplicates, I'll be glad to delete mine if yours are more complete.

I remember when I completed the photographing of our local cemetery (but I only added about 4000 to a total of 16,000), it was quite annoying to not have much cooperation from one person in particular. I vowed to myself then that if the roles were ever reversed in the future I would try to be as cooperative as I could.
