Bio Photo 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

Cemeteries Statistics as of 08/03/2017:
County....................... # cems ..... # Mems ........... w/photo
Broome ........................ 154 ....... 190,040 ..... 179,989 (92.8%)
Susquehanna............... 201 ........ 62,939 ....... 48,855 (77.7%)
Chemung ....................... 130 ......... 130,116 ....... 81,635 (62.7%)
Tioga (NY).................... 104 ......... 67,279 ....... 57,898 (86.1%)


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.

I've just been informed that your picture isn't for the right person--but perhaps you known something about his nickname and other wife that she doesn't...

I am wondering who "Grandma Hanrahan" might be, and if anyone perhaps knows Bridget's husbands name for sure(I came up with Daniel). I am also wondering if there might be any records on this cemetery, and who I might be able to contact regarding this. The best way to contact me is via email: Please put Hanrahan in the message line. I will check replies here as well, but I don't check this often as my email. Thank you very much.

There you are again
Thank you so much for the McAndrew, McHugh and Magura memorials. You probably made a whole lot more too.

My friends on the east coast also wanted me to give you their thanks.

I see that you have accepted a few of my edits and corrections, I was wondering if I sent the transfer requests in the correct request area. Let me know

Thanks for your suggestion.

I hadn't used Sr. because he was Herschel M. and his son was Herschel E. -- which doesn't make a Senior in most accountings --but since your photo clearly shows he used Sr., that's all that counts.

Again, thanks.

Hi Paul,

I want to Thank You for taking the picture of my grandfather's and grandmother's (Vernon Simpson, Beatrice Hill) grave marker and adding it to their Find-A-Grave pages. Since I now know where they are both buried, I have added the burial site to their pages as well.

I really appreciate your time and effort.
