I became interested in Find A Grave when a kind member took a picture of a headstone for me. My ancestors' headstones are thousands of miles away. I decided to "return the favor" with local cemeteries and got hooked. Making digital (electronic)pictures of headstones is important historical and genealogical work. The second cemetery I did work in has a history of having very old headstones washed away when the nearby river flooded. If only someone had taken pictures 15 or 20 years ago!
I strongly feel that I am only "tending" memorials until family members come along to make them their own.
Please e-mail me with requests or corrections about memorials by using the "edit" tab on the memorial page.
A special THANK YOU to the contributors who have taken such lovely pictures of my family's headstones and posted them!
