I started visiting family cemeteries with my dad, listening to him talk about the good old days and the people he knew. At first it was out of duty, but over time it became a joy as I walked through history with him listening to the stories he told.
After I had thoroughly researched and recorded all the family cemeteries, I began to adopt other cemeteries in my area to document. I love the artwork in some of the old monuments, and want to preserve them in photographs for future generations. I work with one local cemetery at a time with an emphasis on historic (pre-1940) graves and typically spend a year documenting it. I am always happy to revisit one of my "project" cemeteries for photo requests, but please remember that sometimes a photo request can't be fulfilled because the grave marker no longer exists. God Bless!
