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%)
Susquehanna . 195 .... 59,514 .... 46,757 (78.6%)
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.

RE: John Keddie (11948932)
Hi, Paul
Read what you just wrote for a start! The 1916 date is in his service records (British Army WWI Service Records, 1914-1920 and UK, Army Registers of Soldiers' Effects, 1901-1929 , as accessible on Ancestry). He was Private John Keddie G/8217 "Queens" Royal West Surrey Regiment.

Thank you for all your work in the graveayards. Much appreciated. I used a photo of yours to my Ancestry Tree Dr. ELIAS Satterlee.

I have recorded the source as:
Taken by: Paul R, 1/20/2017 Find A Grave

Is this acceptable with you. I want to be sure you are recognised as the original photographer.

Regards, Karen

Knapp photos and corrections
Thak you so much Paul for the photos and corrections that you sent. I know Woodlawn is huge and it is so nice to see that someone cares enough to take the time to do this. I truly appreciate it, as I'm about 500 miles away.

Hiya Paul -- it's me, the pest :D
Apologies for flooding your edit 'to do' list. I don't think I've ever seen so many marriages in one family (MacDowall). I wonder if they kept the Ministers on retainer :D Thank you for all you do Paul. ~Berta

RE: Charles Treadwell (91476411)
If you read the tombstones it reads died age 44, l have a edit to correct the dates which Julie Treadwell have that are on the wrong stones.
