I've always liked walking about in cemeteries. I like looking at the old monuments and seeing what people left behind for themselves and loved ones to be remembered, especially the Victorian/Edwardian cemeteries and older. I and my relatives like filling photo requests when we can make the trip out. I mainly add pictures not memorial entries and the memorials added from now on, are limited to early/mid 20th century people and older. I am also NOT really a researcher so any corrections are welcomed.
My reasons for adding pictures and creating memorials is to help people doing their genealogies and family-trees, providing a way for people unable to visit a grave to see it or find it, and preservation. Looking at some of these monuments, headstones, and footstones, they may be totally unreadable in the near future due to the elements, damaged or destroyed by old falling trees in storms, and worse then anything damaged or destroyed due to vandalism.
I adhere to Find A Grave's rules strictly. One is not using pictures YOU didn't take yourselves. So please understand, my photos ARE NOT for use here or anywhere else on the net without asking me first. Kindly just ask first if you want to use one of them!
