I'm a native of Logan County Kentucky and Amateur genealogist and historic site conservationist. Gravestone preservation and repairs are among my interests. Also photography and natural landscapes.
Please if you are a family member of a person I have created a memorial for, simply request me and I'll gladly transfer the memorial with photos. As usual all my photos are copy written so proper requests do apply as per the rules of Find a Grave.
Also PHOTOS: Please assume all my photos are copywriter privileged and ask me for your copy for personal family use only.
No dart boards made from my photos please.
Reclaiming abandoned Graveyards I have experience with. Archeological issues can arise, detail is important from first site to attempting to clean a stone to read it. Document everything.
If ever a question on something call the local historical society before acting.
Remember laws pertaining to visiting a graveyard and land owners property, vary State to state.
For safety sake, before waking onto someones property call upon the land owner before encroaching upon the property to see if it is the grave of a family member. Some land owners are very touchy about people hanging out on there property.
Rural Grave yards are a safety hazard, be careful.
Go with a friend, and a phone with a camera, for Documentation sake or more.
I now work from Franklin County, Va. to Logan Co., Ky.
