Find A Grave ID


As a youngster my parents taught me necessity of showing respect, dignity and the need to honor those departed before us. Find-A-Grave is one of the ways we can fulfill that obligation.

When I retired in 1996, at the urging of my wife, I began researching and recording my family genealogy. My wife had been researching her family for many years prior. As we traveled around the United States it was only natural that we visit the cemeteries of our ancestors. We began photographing the gravestones and then found Find-A-Grave. Our research and recording of family records spun off to include an organized way of recording the photos. Find-A Grave is the perfect vehicle for this project. I continue to organize our photos and will be placing them on the memorials.

The generosity of others in sharing their photographic work is inspiring as I continue to seek new photos from the generous contributors of this organization.

If I can be of assistance to the membership for photo work in the Sacramento, CA area please contact me.
