Bio

If I've created a memorial that is for a family member of yours, or a friend, or a neighbor, or just anyone that you would like to manage and develop their memorial, and would like me to transfer it to you, just ask, I'll be glad to do so.

I have done family tree research on my family on and off since I was a teenager. I have found much information on this site for my family, so I've been 'paying back' by photographing cemeteries in my area. Feel free to copy and repost any gravestone picture I upload, without restriction.

I do most of my work at Elmwood Cemetery in Birmingham, Alabama. I usually pick a block and photograph the whole thing, and I'm starting with the older part of the cemetery. Building on the work of many others, I have walked the rows and added photos to existing memorials, or added new memorials, for every grave marker in blocks 1 through 23, and all of the buildings of the mausoleums. I started block 24 in May 2020. I'm also attempting to confirm the burial places (often unmarked) of the oldest memorials at Elmwood.

We're also doing some work at Oak Hill, fulfilling requests and photographing blocks, but much less often.

I will seek out requests for Elmwood, or other cemeteries in the Birmingham area. If you have a request for my area, call the cemetery office and see if you can get the block and lot, send me that info and I'll get your photo as soon as I can.

I scanned in all the block maps for Elmwood and uploaded them on this site, if anyone else is interested in that cemetery, this will save you a lot of time.
