PLEASE NOTE: Graves photographed during the Winter and early Spring months will not give you the best photos. Winters in Green Bay are long and brutal, filled with dark, cloudy days of sleet and snow or unbearable bitter cold days with the wind chill well below zero. Many monuments, especially Veteran's flush monuments, and the grave identifying numbers are often buried in deep drifts of snow or covered in ice. The cemetery does not plow all of the service roads, making it difficult to get to many of the graves. In early Spring, the grounds are a spongy, muddy mess in early Spring. For the best gravesite photos, please submit requests in Spring through Fall. From mid-November to the end of April, is the time frame to avoid adding photo requests.
I am a professional photographer, a local historian and former board member of the Brown County Historical and Antiquarian Societies. I enjoy helping to preserve history and assisting others with their genealogy research, especially involving the deceased interred, inurned and entombed at Allouez Catholic Cemetery & Chapel Mausoleum. I have been researching genealogy since 1965 and have been photographing at this historic cemetery, the oldest in Wisconsin, for more than 50 years.
My photos are taken professionally with a NIKON camera. I take the time to wait for the right weather and lighting, remove debris from around the monument and take the very best photo possible. I do not tarnish the peaceful beauty or disturb the reverence of the grave site by adding dates, times or any other text to my photos, and you will never see my reflection in the monument or my shadow over the grave site or monument. Each photo is a work of art and labor of love done with as much respect for your family member as I would want for my own. I respectfully refrain from posting any personal messages to or about the deceased to my photos unless I personally knew the deceased.
I will add the cemetery or mausoleum section location of the grave or crypt in the caption below the photo. Whenever possible, I will post two photos, one from a distance, and one that is close-up of the memorial monument, crypt front or niche front. If there is a Military/Veteran's monument present, I will add a photo of that, also.
EDITS, TRANSFERS, CORRECTIONS, LINK REQUESTS: Please make any transfer requests, corrections, or family linkage requests via the Edit tab on the memorial and include the profile number in your request. I will be happy to transfer management of a profile if I am not a relative or personally connected to the deceased. THANK YOU to all who've kindly submitted edits or transfers.
