Bio and Links
Bio Photo FOLKS:
****If my name is below the photo on a memorial page, please click on the photo to enlarge it and access an explanatory caption, which in most cases includes a transcription of every legible word on the lot, whether legible in the photo or not. I also include as complete a burial list as I can for as many lots as I can. If you have an issue with the photo for any reason, contact me before issuing a duplicate photo request, which will most likely send another graver on a wild goose chase for an impossible photo.
****In many cases, just because you have received an automatically generated email telling you a photo has been uploaded--don't assume that's the whole story. I nearly always put in edits to update or add information not already part of the memorial page. It could take weeks for those edits to be approved by the page creator--unless it's me--(they usually, but not always, are). So check back from time to time.
****It's a good idea to identify pages by their memorial numbers rather than by name, as names are duplicative and can change as the result of research. Green-Wood's online burial search--the source of most Green-Wood memorial pages, is generally dependable, but nevertheless loaded with small but misleading errors that are inadvertently copied into Find-a-Grave by the page creators.

Thanks for trying to get a photo of a headstone and your detailed explanation of the problems that explain why no headstone exists. At least that helps explain why Greenwood Cemetery has misspelled his name ! Have a great day. Thanks to ALL volunteers. You folks are our eyes and ears on the ground and I truly appreciate what you do for us all!

Ostergren Headstone Photo
Thank you so much for taking a picture of the Ostergren headstone! My mother will also be very interested to see this. The birthdates here are information that we don't have anywhere else. Thanks again!

Thank you so much!
Thank you so much for ALL the photos you took. I couldn't believe it and was delighted Graves of the Prince's, Brainard's and Barron's. Even more then I had dared to request. The quality was stellar and you transcribed the gravestones too! I am so grateful. Thank you again.

Thanks for the excellent and corroborating photos of these two brothers, close in life and apparently in life ever after.

Regards, Philip in NYC

Thanks for the photo and the one of her husband. Great help in determining if this is the correct Gertrude.
