I hope you enjoy Find a Grave
as much as I do!


I developed an interest in genealogy after a family reunion—it started with just my family, and now extends beyond. In my wildest dreams I could not have imagined spending so much time in cemeteries photographing headstones throughout Lake, Mendocino, Napa, Solano and Sonoma counties.

Thank you to those of you who submit edit requests. Your time and effort is truly appreciated. No one can do this alone.

My personal plea to photo volunteers. Please photograph with a quality camera that would produce a nice, clear image. The photo you take is likely to be the only one in existence. Photograph the entire monument—not just the engraving, and avoid over cropping. It's okay to gently sweep off debris, however, cleaning or removing lichen is not allowed. Not all markers have weathered well, so do your best to get a good photo suitable for posting.
