- Find A Grave ID
I first became interested in our family's genealogy. Then I started collecting old family photos. As my interest grew, I started exploring cemeteries near my hometown, where I learned that tombstones often give valuable information.
Since I found Find a Grave, I have started walking through cemeteries taking pictures of all of the stones. I love the old stones, but they are often hard to read. I take multiple views, then photoshop them to enhance the lettering. I enjoy adding pictures of the tombstones to the memorials. If I don't find entries for the tombstones I have photographed, I add their names to Find a Grave.
You are welcome to copy the photos for your personal use. PLEASE, if you want to put them on Ancestry.com or any other website, please give credit to me. All you have to do is mention the Find a Grave memorial number or my name. It upsets me to see someone else take credit for uploading pictures I spent hours collecting or photoshopping.
If you know additional information you would like added to a memorial I created, I would rather transfer management to you than make the changes myself unless they happen to be members of my family.
