A cemetery is not a place just to bury the dead. It should be a sacred place for quiet reflection, peace, tranquility, honor, and remembrance. It is a history of people and a perpetual record of yesterday.
I have traveled many thousands of miles to many different states just to visit a gravesite, record the GPS location and photograph the gravestone. Not being the best photographer, I take many photos of the same gravestone over the course of, hours, a day, months, or many years, in order to get a photo that I am happy with at the time. In this way, I have a chance to revisit the gravesite; check the condition of the gravestone; see if it's still there, etc. I am now in the process of revisiting gravesites to record their GPS location and that of the gravestones.
I, Gary Boughton, give you permission to use any photo I have taken if you are kind enough to give me credit for the photo. (Everyone likes to be recognized for their time & effort) Thanks so very much. This also adds provenance to the photo, that I actually visited the gravesite on a certain day, photographed the gravestone at the correctly named cemetery, and when I can record the GPS location.
I will not use chalk, shaving cream, brake fluid, or any other potentially harmful methods to enhance the inscriptions. Please do not use these on any photo requests I make, Thank you so very much.
Although FINDAGRAVE can be very useful for genealogy, FINDAGRAVE, as the name implies, is a grave registration site, not a genealogy site. I try to use this as my guide when on this site.
I will NOT add a link to a burial-unknown memorial because I am still actively looking for where the person is actually buried. This site is named Find a GRAVE for a reason.
