Bio

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 below). 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 and I'll be happy 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. I hope to regain the feeling of dignity and serenity that I used to have when I walked into the cemetery. It is one of the most honorable, respectful, and to me, sacred locations in the world. I am still (as of 2018) trying to keep the listing of interments in Arlington National Cemetery up to date (including grave locations) on FindAGrave. Even this generates "hate mail" from volunteers who aren't willing to just send additional information or ask for transfers and prefer to rant. If you are considering volunteering at ANC, feel free to contact me for details so you can try to avoid the "hot spots".

I don't add grave listings to Find-a-grave without waiting to allow family/friends time to document the disposition first. For ANC I wait until the burial date has been assigned and published online which is usually months or even years after the death occurred. I also freely delete or transfer if family asks.

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 for this, 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.
