Bio and Links
Bio Photo My interest of documenting cemeteries began with a request to help on an Eagle Scout project in 2001.

Since I love creating and working with databases, digital photography and genealogy, what better combination!

I've documented many Howard Co. Indiana and Montclam Co. Michigan cemeteries with thousands of tombstone photos. My largest contributions are Arlington National Cemetery and Crown Hill Cemetery, Indianapolis.

I love Find A Grave and I especially enjoy adding photos to memorials so that family members can visit their family member's grave at anytime. However, I ask that you respect my efforts. Please, do NOT copy my photos to without giving me credit. Simply indicate " 2001-2016 John C Anderson on Find A Grave". I'd appreciate a note letting me know you have copied them. However, do NOT post them to other Find A Grave memorials. Just let me know and I will upload them. Use for commercial purposes is not allowed under any circumstances. However, it is okay with me for you to post my photos of your friends and families headstones on Facebook as long as you link it back to the Find A Grave memorial. You may use my photos on your own personal website if non-commercial, but photo credit is again appreciated.

This love of documenting cemeteries has led to the formation of Instone Data Solutions, a company used by government agencies and others to digitize their old cemetery paper records.

I'm more than happy to make corrections and add relationship links to other memorials.

ALL REQUESTS FOR corrections, additional information, or transfers: PLEASE do so with the Suggest A Correction (SAC) link on the memorial for that person. [Most memorials will have an 'Edit' tab on the upper right side of the memorial. Click on the 'Edit' tab, then click on the 'Suggest a correction' link on the Edit page.]

PLEASE NOTE: I'm very grateful for corrections and additional information, but I'm receiving 75-100 a day and cannot reply to everyone. Please check back to ensure accuracy of memorial page updates.

Please be assured I do most updates, corrections and links (via SAC, email or message) within a day. Guidelines do suggest a member send no more than 20 per week to a single contributor but have no problem with receiving as many as needed to get the objective accomplished - which is getting memorials, and the cemeteries, as accurate and complete as humanly possible.

Thank you John for the work you do. I have a friend that is buried in Greenlawn Cemetery in Greentown, Indiana. I live in Idaho. She passed away on May 28, 1994 at a very young age and I have just recently contacted her sister who lives in Ohio. I got information from her, then I located Cindy on Findagrave. I see that you are the contributor of her information. Again, thank you. I have found a friend that for so long has been lost to me and her family no longer lives close to her resting place. I know that some Findagrave memorials include the obituaries for that person. Do you have any way to retrieve an obituary from the Kokomo Tribune and paste it to her memorial page? It is in that paper sometime after May 28, 1994. I am also a member of Findagrave and have set up all of my family on there and some friends. If there is any way possible to do that, I would really love to see her obituary. Thank you. Sandy Ward

I believe Edward's middle initial should be L for Louis.

Thanks, Mark

Wow, that was a quick transfer and I want to say how much I appreciate it. Now I can add some to her BIO.
Just a note, I have just come in possession of all of her genealogy from papers my now deceased brother had. I have a lot of work to do making her family connections now.
