Bio and Links
My husband and I have been researching our families for over ten years. Most of this was done the old fashioned way by visiting archives, libraries, courthouses, elderly relatives etc. When we began there was nothing available on the internet, not even census records.

The way we did it was great fun. But now it is much easier. There is so much on the internet --definitely not everything-- but a lot. Since discovering Find-a-Grave, I was able to locate a couple of people in my own line that I had not previously managed to find. Now I want to help others by being involved in the project of Find-a-Grave.

I try to take good pictures but sometimes because of the conditions, etc. they do not come out as I would like. If anyone gets a better picture than I have put up, just let me know and I will remove mine.

Find A Grave Memorial# 103067006
Your Memorial# 103067006 for Tiny Lee is a duplicate of Memorial# 37698736. It would be every so nice if you would post your photo of his headstone to Memorial# 37698736 (which was posted prior to your memorial) and then delete your memorial. I do appreciate all the work you have done for the Find A Grave website.

George Landry
Dear Louise,

I am researching my paternal grandfather's WWI army unit, Company B, 355th Infantry, 89th Division. According to the History of the 89th Division, George Landry, who was from Paincourtville, LA, was also part of this unit.

I'm not exactly sure where I'm going with my project, but want to eventually publish something. Would it be permissible to use your photograph of the grave of George Landry (Find A Grave Memorial# 122543606) should I eventually publish something?

Thank you,

With warm regards,

Bryan Anderson

RE: Dorothy Fairbanks
I'm sorry, but my captsha puzzle thing is not appearing, so I can't use the edit for messages. Find A Grave says I need to upgrade my OS, but I don't like changes, so I'm stalling...

Gravestone Photo Permission

I am happy to see that you photographed the gravestones of Alvin & Betty Alford in Holy Rosary Catholic Church Cemetery (Memorial# 38328372).

I would like to add these gravestone photos to the (non-profit) Alford American Family Association's collection of Louisiana Obituaries, where their obituaries are (or will be) included. You can see the current collection at

May I have your permission to include your gravestone photos? If so, the photo caption will say:

Photo from [cemetery name, city, county, state]—
Permission granted by the photographer, Louise [or your full name if you prefer]

And thanks so much for your gravestone photo work!

Best regards,
Pamela Alford Thompson (Find A Grave #47195155)
