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.

Conversely, if you have information or photos you would like to add to any of the memorials I have created, feel free - each memorial can hold twenty photos even if not sponsored, so the more, the merrier.

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. I have photographed and uploaded all of block 1 through 17, 19 and 20, and helped another contributor finish 21; and all of the buildings of the mausoleums. Currently I am working on block 18.

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.

I sometimes add photographs to memorials that might already have them in order to add the GPS. . I leave them on the memorial because some managers require proof of data. I also leave them as type 'grave' because that is required by FG rules, as in not adding false data to the site, which causes them to sort to the top of the pictures unless one has already been tagged as the profile photo.

You can add links in a bio with HTML like this, particularly useful when siblings do not have parents with memorials and you want to connect them.

a href="https://www.findagrave.com/memorial/##"Name

Replace ## with the actual number and Name with what you want it to say (like Jane Doe). Add a 'less than' sign before it all, and a 'greater than' sign after (the findagrave editor won't let me save the actual marks).
