Bio Photo "One person can make a difference, and everyone should try." John Fitzgerald Kennedy

The best way to give back on this site is to go out to a local cemetery and fulfill some photo requests. If someone has fulfilled photo requests for you, maybe it's time to go do the same for someone else. It really is very rewarding for both you and the person for whom you take the photo.

The best way you can help the volunteer photographers is to post the burial plot of the grave markers you want photographed. Posting photo requests without a burial plot is like trying to get somewhere without directions. You might get there eventually, but it could have been a whole lot easier and taken much less time. The "Help with Find A Grave" file clearly states that the person requesting a photo is to provide the burial plot for the photographers.

Almost all memorials I create are not family members, and I am willing to transfer them to other members.

Do not use the photos I take anywhere else, including within Find A Grave, without permission. I retain the copyright to all of my photos.

Major Accomplishment 2016: Fulfilled my 4,000th photo request on September 9, 2016. Discovered and photographed the burial books for St. Vincent Cemetery in LaSalle, Illinois.

Major Accomplishment 2015: Fulfilled over 500 photo requests, most of which were at Forest Home Cemetery in Forest Park, Illinois, and cleared up 75% of the photo requests at the cemetery.

Major Accomplishment 2014: Fulfilled over 2,222 photo requests with number 2,000 occurring on October 28, 2014. Multiple cemeteries with large backlogs of over 100 photo requests were cleaned up while completing this project.

Major Accomplishment 2013: Added photos for all 433 persons buried in the Chicago Typographical Union Section of Elmwood Cemetery in River Grove, Illinois along with most of the veterans sections, the old age home, Civil War wives, and a large group of graves at the southern end of the cemetery.

Memorial #162724805
Hello ACE,

I have been researching my family tree and came across the memorial record you added on May 17 2016. I am a relative of both Edward and William Williams from the UK and know we had family members in the US from William. Would it be possible to let me know how the memorial request was made and would it be possible to put me in contact with who ever requested it. We have lost contact with our US relatives and would like to follow this up.

Many thanks

Zachariah Melugin 128656307
Hello Ace,

I recently asked for a transfer of this memorial. If this does not meet with your approval, please change the bio information concerning his wife Mary Ross Melugin Atkinson marrying John Robison as it is incorrect.
Thank you very much.

According to the website,
"Melugin's Grove a Lee County Ghost Town",
Zachariah's sister, Mary Melugin Robison 1810-1879 (91174801) married John Knapp Robison 1808-1899. After Zachariah's death, his wife (Mary Ross Melugin-Atkinson 1814-1880 (99521997), married William T. Atkinson 1806-1888 (99521957)

RE: Addie Chapin
Ace - On her memorial there are two pictures, one of the stone and the other of a monument that is a "Memorial to the Union Soldier's Widows". At the bottom of the memorial is this statement - "This monument and burial lot were given to the W.R.C. by the mother of Sylvia Springer Doton, 1904".

So Addie's aunt, Esther Springer, donated the memorial in her daughter's Sylvia's name. Her daughter died in 1902 and it was in numerous papers that Sylvia Doton had died while saluting the flag at a Women's Relief Corps meeting. (I suspect that is what W.R.C. stands for on the monument.)

Thanks for your help. I talk with Kaye several times a month and know her well. Just digging for little things to add to her "Tree". I am looking for family that she might not have recent information on.

Are you familiar with Kaye Aurigemma? She is my daughter-in-law's mother and I am doing a family genealogy report for her.
