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
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%)

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.

Curious how you got this information. I believe no stone exists. I as his gr-grandson would like to have a stone erected. Have you visited? Thanks Joe Crogan

Francis Finch b1898
Paul, this is not the correct Francis Finch data.

Francis Finch b 8/31/1898 in Minnesota is my grandfather who is the son of Ira Finch from New York. Francis A. Finch actually died in Alma, Michigan in 1993.

Earl and Mary Lee
Hi, I am the grandson of Earl and Mary Lee in Center Lisle Cemetery. I submitted edits to birth dates etc to correct (Earl was 100 years off). Just wanted you to know I'm not some random stranger messing with things. Thank you for your help.

Ruth A Burtis transfer
Thank you for transferring ownership of Ruth A. Burtis to me. She was a feisty little lady - would never have let anyone 'own' her. :)

RE: Theron Thompson Gage (32582000)
I have removed your photo that I placed on Theron's memorial. I don't know if you had clicked on it - I did credit you in the caption and say where that stone was. I can't remember why I thought it was helpful to place it there, but I should have asked you first. Sorry.

Thank you.
