I won't be taking photo's for awhile.. just too busy with work and other activities..
I am a proud photo volunteer for Riverside, Ca.. I mostly cover Riverside National, Olivewood, Evergreen and Crestlawn. I will also visit Sunnyslope and Perris Valley. I found this site while working on my genealogy. I have a membership to ancestry.com and often use it to verify veterans plot locations and to check the California Death or Social Security Death Indexes.
My haplogroup is R1a.
Ps. I currently use a Canon Power Shot A540.. All my photos are now 1200 X 800 or as big as 250 mb, they used to be 800 X 450(proportionate) and are JPEG. if you want the original feel free to contact me and I will email them to you..
PPs.. just a thought on bronze markers.. if you can afford granite or marble.. do it.. bronze looks nice when it is new but unless you are able to clean it on a regular basis.. well they just don't stay nice..
If I take a photo for you and you wish to use it.. please try to remember to credit me.. and if there is another name on it.. add a memorial and let me know and I will add the photo for you.. thanks!!
**I can not stress this enough.. If I fulfill a request for you, please do not take the photo and add it to another memorial.. I am very easy going and all you have to do is email me and I will happily add it for you.. Feel free to use the photo for your family tree.. if you decide to publish it, please contact me first**
If I add a memorial.. there is only two or three reasons I will do so.. they are family.. they are on a stone of another person that someone requested.. they have and upright stone.. or they are in a row that I have photographed in a columbarium.. okay so that is 4 reasons..
My photo was taken on my drive to work.. I don't recommend taking pictures while driving.. it is very hard.. :)
If I claim a request for you and I go to fulfill it and there is a temporary marker, I will photograph the temporary for you and then I will keep an eye out for it and take it for you down the line.. and if I somehow miss it and somebody else takes it. I will do the right thing and remove the temporary.
