Edit: It is now 2016, I have 3 children (15 years old, 6 years old and 2 years old) and a full time job. I don't have any free time basically. I try to transfer memorials when I can. Please use the edit button for that. Please don't send me nasty messages (are you an adult or child??? I've deleted all those) if I don't reply. If you have a problem waiting, you can have an admin transfer if I don't get back to you and unless it's my mother or grandparents I won't mind. I'd rather they be in the care of a family member who will keep them updated. My family tree is on Ancestry.com. :) Also, you may use any of my photos, for your own records, on any genealogy website, or to add to a correct memorial, no credit is needed.
I hope to photograph all of the Philadelphia cemeteries eventually or help out when I can. I was working on photographing the entire Old Cathedral Cemetery, however, have had cemetery workers tell me I can't photograph the headstones. I finished about a third of it and plan to wait a bit to go back and hope they don't ban me. I have about 800 (as of 4/23/13) more photos to do, and hope to be finished that soon. I'm still working on what I photographed in that one trip, it was a large amount of pictures and I become burnt out after awhile and take a few months off. Maybe I will be brave enough to go back soon and hope not to get kicked out.
If any of the people I list are your relatives within 4 generations, feel free to either request that I transfer ownership or send me any info to update the page. I would love to transfer them since I do not have time to research everyone I list and can only go by the info on headstones and/or death records. Please do so by clicking on the edit button on their memorial and then clicking on suggest a correction. Doing it this way automatically sends me a link to the memorial and your contributor page, both of which I need to transfer. Sometimes I don't have much time to check on this site, so it may take me a bit, but I try to remember.
I make a point of checking to see if a person is listed already before creating a memorial for them and will upload photos to the already existing memorial. Sometimes I miss one or two (because the name is misspelled on original memorial or on the tombstone, the dates don't match up, etc.), if you find I have duplicated someone, let me know and I will remove it (if I have the time) and add my photos to the original memorial.
