I've enjoyed genealogy since the early 70s when I would send out letters typed on a manual typewriter left over from college and enclosed a SASE (self addressed stamped envelope).
I've lived in Alaska since 1968. On trips "outside" I'd visit cemeteries where my ancestors were buried. I like to stand at the gravesite and look around at the surroundings knowing this is what my people saw when they said goodby to a loved one.
I've been fortunate to inherit family photographs and have uploaded many of those to Find-a-Grave.
In the summer of 2013 I helped update the records of the Spruce Grove Cemetery in Kasilof, Kenai Peninsula Borough, Alaska. In October of 2013, I photographed markers in the Anchor Point, Kenai Peninsula Borough, Alaska cemetery and added burials which were missing to Find a Grave. In June 2015, I added Tyonek burials listed in the 2004 book Cemetery Inscriptions and Area Memorials in Alaska's Kenai Peninsula Borough. Spent the holidays 2013-14 in Boulder, Boulder County, Colorado and took photographs of some of the markers in the Mountain View Cemetery. I work on photographing the markers in that cemetery every time I visit. As I travel, I take photographs of markers and if they aren't listed I add the people to Find a Grave ... most recently Kodiak City Cemetery in August 2015.
I am very willing to transfer any entries that aren't my own family. You are welcome to use any of the photographs of markers that I take in your own genealogy work.
Thank you for having such a site.
