Bio

I am a retired Master Chief Petty Officer, US Navy, and have been researching History and genealogy quite a few years. I have also been researching graves and graveyards for many years. I currently live in Pensacola, Florida, but travel occassionally around the Eastern US visiting family and searching for graves. My family history site is public on Ancestry.com. I am a genealogy Addict, and have a special affinity for Ulster County New York where I grew up, and for Essex County New York where my wife grew up.

If you are looking for permission to use one of my photos on your own genealogy site: Limited Permission is granted for all not-for-profit publication, as long as proper photo credit is given, such as "Find-A-Grave memorial #012345 photo by F R Ross on 5/12/2013."

If you are requesting an edit to one of my memorials, I usually take care of edits within 36 hours.

Coins on Military Markers
A coin left on a headstone lets the deceased soldiers family know that somebody stopped by to pay their respect. Leaving a penny means you visited. A nickel means that you and the deceased soldier trained at boot camp together. If you served with the soldier, you leave a dime. A quarter is very significant because it means that you were there when that soldier died.
