You have my permission to use any photos that I have taken, for any purpose. Such as using on a family tree or publishing in a book. You do not have to give me credit for the photo.

If there are any photos I have taken that you would like a larger sized image--just let me know. I can e-mail the larger sized image to you.

15 Jun 2018 - Recently, I have been going through some old photographs I purchased on eBay. These (most of them) were identified in writing on the photo. I am attempting to take those names and locate the person/s on Ancestry and FindaGrave. Once I am able to locate the individuals, I then scan their photo and place them on the FindaGrave memorial.

I have also gone through some old digital newspapers on and I am constantly finding old obituaries in those papers. I then take those obituaries and attempt to locate the deceased on FindaGave. If these people have no memorial, I then build their family tree on Ancestry and create a memorial for them on FindaGrave based on the info from the obituary and the family trees. It's a real challenge to locate these people, but is very gratifying when I do.

If you are one of those people who like posting flowers, please go to these memorials and post flowers. It would be appreciated.
