Find a Grave ID


I'm a retired former Criminal Behaviors Supervisor for the State of New York. I worked for OMRDD and OMH with many different titles.

I've been a Magician, a Roadie and promoter, Streaming Radio Disc Jockey, and Advertising Manager.

Now that I'm retired, I fish, research, and enjoy life.

I am the "FIND" in FIND A GRAVE. I roam fields and hills and investigate forgotten cemeteries where ever they may be hiding. I take pictures and transfer the memorial whenever possible. I do NOT go to graves to locate people in the WINTER. Don't bother to ask. I'm not into data entry and sitting at a computer all day and I won't do that. Ask anyone.

Due to abuse of the use of photographs I have personally taken and then used by others without asking permission, I amend my copyright allowance.

If you see a photograph you would like to use, all you have to do is ask for my permission AND note where the photograph came from when using it in your memorial or family tree. I have taken to marking my photographs so I can prove they were taken by myself.

Find A Grave states:

General Rules:

ONLY post photos for which YOU hold the copyright (meaning photos you took)!!!
The copyright of all photos posted to Find A Grave remains with the original submitter. No use of photos for any other website or personal use is given without prior consent of the original submitter.

My change in attitude comes from individuals who insist on claiming pictures I have taken as their own work. I spend my time and money taking these and I gladly share IF those I share with just acknowledge the fact that I made it available for them to use. It is not too much to ask, is it??
