Love begins with a smile...grows with a kiss...and ends with a teardrop...

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 thousands of miles to many 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 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 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. Thanks so very much. This 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 possible, recorded the GPS location.

I will not use chalk, shaving cream, brake fluid, or 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.

Findagrave Memorial Naming Conventions

If a hyphen or an apostrophe is part of the name, use the punctuation.
Use a period after names where only an initial is known. If the full name is known, use the full name and not the initial.
Do not use any other punctuation within any Name Field.
Do not use Full capitalization (ALL-CAPS) of names in any Name Field.
Suffixes and Prefixes do not belong in any Name Field.

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.
