I have done extensive research on my own family tree and have spent many hours searching small cemeteries in upstate NY for relatives. I enjoy the quiet and solitude of cemeteries along with the thrill of finally finding the stone you have been searching for. I have frequently relied on research that others have done before me and I believe it is important to repay the contributions forward to fellow researchers and family members in search of ancestors.

My family tree names include McGee, Kollar, Crawford, Juriga, and Krauss. Most of my ancestors lived in the western NY, southern tier NY, and Wilkes-Barre PA areas. If you think you might be a relative please feel free to drop me a line!

Lately I have been splitting my time between Calverton National and Long Island National Cemeteries filling requests and working towards driving up the percentage of photographed headstones and ground plaques. With just under 500,000 graves yet to be documented photographically between the two, there is plenty to do!

If you would like an original copy of any photo request that I upload please feel free to contact me with your email address. You may also use any uploaded photo without asking for my permission although credit would be appreciated if published.

Although infrequent, I will add any memorial that I find was not uploaded to Find A Grave and am more than willing to turn control over to a relative if asked, even if outside the Find a Grave "guidelines".
