Bio

I will say this at the start of my Bio, if you are family or you want to manage the Memorials that I have added to Find A Grave, please feel free to message me and request that.

I decided to be a contributor to Find A Grave because, not only is a cemetery peaceful, I have found that taking the pictures is an easy way to document memorial stones.

I walk the cemetery with respect for those who have been laid to rest. I want them to know that someone is physically there acknowledging their name and that they are not forgotten in case the families are not in the area.

Some of the cemeteries that I have visited have stones ready to topple. I take pictures of them because once they have fallen, time and environment might erase the names.

I post my pictures even if there are others taken. Sometimes if I post my pictures and if they are blurry know that I will go back to the cemetery and take a better one. The blurry one is just a place holder so you know they have a stone.

If I have taken pictures in the summer and the stones are hard to read because of the plants, I will come back again in the fall and take a better picture. If you want me to take another picture of a specific stone and the surrounding ones so you can see if there are connections, I will do my best to do that.

If I can, I link family members but I do try to make sure I am correct or I will not do it. If I have made errors, I would definitely correct them if I am made aware.
