I am a native of Utah and have been doing research for almost 25 years. I love walking through cemeteries and photographing headstones. I can't explain it other than I am extremely passionate about taking headstone photos because the cemetery markers and tombstones are being disintegrated and destroyed by many elements daily. Some of these markers and tombstones might be some of the oldest in Utah. The biggest threat the headstones face today are vandals. The other obvious threats are weather and time. Now is the time to photograph them while they are still intact and readable. I encourage whomever would like to photograph and care for tombstones to do it now so that further generations will have a chance to view these headstones, if by no other way than by photograph.
If you have any questions or requests please post questions on my profile.
For all the people whom have taken the
time to take photos for my memorials...a BIG THANKS!
Please don't create duplicate memorials for people I have taken photos or created memorials for...simply ask and I will gladly transfer ownership over to you, unless I am related to the same individual. Please be respectful and ASK ME before you take and post my photos to different web sites! You may use or post a copy of headstones to other websites as long as you post this info with it: Special permission has been given by Utahtombstonelady@hotmail.com.
I am related to several individuals in my memorials. I WILL NOT turn over OWNERSHIP for them for obvious reasons.
