Greetings, I developed an interest in genealogy after a family reunion. It started with just my family, and now extends beyond. In my wildest dreams I could not have imagined spending so much time in cemeteries photographing headstones throughout the United States.

Thank you to those of you who submit edit requests. Your time and effort is truly appreciated. I try to provide an explanation when I'm forced to decline an edit request, it just seems like the respectful thing to do.


Before you send me a snotty message, ASSUME POSITIVE INTENTIONS. Let's try that, the outcome is always better.

Are you curious about Find a Grave's dos and don'ts? The following information should help you navigate the site a bit easier, a) Find a Grave Help; b) Naming Convention; c) Terms of Service; d) Community Rules; e) Privacy Statement.

Following Find a Grave's naming convention minimizes duplicates and result in successful searches, however, it only works if we ALL follow the same guidelines. Please use the bio to enter those additional spouses, special nicknames, etc. Mom, Dad, Aunt Ruth, Uncle Bob, are not considered nicknames.

Did you know that posting Social Security numbers on memorial pages is not allowed. Why not? Read Terms and Conditions.

If you still have questions, consider visiting the Forums specifically, Ask the Community, where experienced members answer "How do I ... ?" Scroll to the bottom of this window and click on Forums to join.
