NOTE: For those members sending edits to me to add material published after 1922: Since find-a-grave is now part of Ancestry (a large for-profit organization) and since their own rules state that if a member posts something that they are asserting that they have the rights AND that ancestry.com is henceforth given free world-wide reuse to the material...its just not allowed (doesn't qualify as free use as ancestry makes money off of them) and I'm not willing to risk my account (rules also state frequent violators, if detected, will have their account revoked). However, I will usually transfer the listing to you. If you want to risk it, go ahead.
I started doing photo inventories of cemeteries in St. Lawrence county NY in 1999 and have close to 200 cemeteries inventoried on my home page (see link above). I copied the inventories to find-a-grave and am uploading the photos here. If you find a photo on my website that you would like uploaded here, please send me an email or leave me a message if you would like me to add them.
I lived most of my life in the Washington DC area where I took photos at Arlington National Cemetery (ANC) from 2007-2015. I now live in Colorado but but still visit ANC when I can to take photos. However, I no longer claim requests due to stalking and harassment from a couple other volunteers.
ALL the men and women who served our country and put their lives on the line deserve respect, but I have a particular interest in those who fought and died in WWI (over 116K casualties in a 2 year period). They were exposed to some of the most brutal warfare known and the suffering in that war was intense. Over the last 5-6 years I have endeavored to ensure all the graves of the WWI servicemen buried in Arlington (approx. 8,000) are documented and photographed on find-a-grave the 100 year anniversary of our formal involvement in that war. However, the men who served and sometimes died in ANY conflict from the Revolutionary War to today's conflicts in Iraq, Afghanistan and Syria are all equally noble in my eye.
Let me know if you would like to take-over management of any listings I manage for your family/friends. I generally honor such requests, but please realize that edits can be made by using the edit tab on the memorial without any need for transfer of management and its much quicker for everyone
Lastly, please remember that the purpose of find-a-grave is to create a database of world-wide final disposition data for people to use to find where an individual is buried, and to allow them to virtually see the site through pictures taken by volunteers. It can be used to create memorials (as long as a grave location is known), but there are also many true "memorial sites" that may be more appropriate than a site called "Find a Grave". I recommend: https://weremember.com/ . Other options are https://www.forevermissed.com/, http://www.never-gone.com/, http://virtual-memorials.com/ ... and many others.
