I began visiting local cemeteries for my family history and quickly changed to photographing as much of a cemetery as I could and posting the photos or entering a new memorial if there wasn't one before. I hope to help those looking for their ancestors, and also to preserve and document the gravesite. So many stones are deteriorating rapidly, and natural or man made catastrophes are endangering some cemeteries. It is vital that we preserve this information for future generations. I also find it very peaceful to walk in our local cemeteries, and a connection in knowing that many years ago they walked the same ground and lived their lives here.
If I have maintenance of a memorial that is related to you and you wish to manage it, please do not hesitate to let me know and I will gladly transfer to you. I believe they belong with family.
Feel free to use my photos as long as it is for family history or genealogy related matters.
