Highland Park Cemetery
Hi Mike, I saw where you had taken the cemetery photo for this this cemetery. I have had a photo request for this cemetery for several months with no takers. It looks like I only requested it in June but I took it off and reentered it thinking that might help. I was wondering if there is a problem at the cemetery that keeps someone from accepting the photo request. Do they need permission, etc. If you can answer my questions, would appreciate it.

Hello Mike,
May I please have your permission to add your photo of Homewood Cemetery in Pittsburgh, PA to the profiles on my tree of my 6 Reif family members who are buried in Homewood.
I would, of course, give you the photo credit for them.

Thank you for considering my request.

Calvary Cemetery in St. Louis
I noticed that you had contributed a photo for this cemetery:

A number of my relatives are buried at Calvary and I have been there and know that it is large. It took me a while to discover that the burials are indexed online here:

I believe this link should be prominently displayed on the cemetery page but I don't know how to submit this information to findagrave. (Any contact I have tried to make to the administrators seems to have been ignored.)

I wonder since you were able to upload a photo, are you still able to add a caption to it? Since your photo is prominent on the page, it would be cool if you could give it a caption like
'Search for a Burial Plot'
I have a grave photo request waiting in a very long queue, partly because many of the memorials do not have a plot listed. I thought this might assist others in posting a correct plot location.

What do you think?

Adelaide Addison Pollard, Hymnist (1862-1934)

Dear Mr. Reed,

This cyberhymnal page provides the birth and death dates, middle name and some biographical information for Adelaide Addison Pollard. I've not yet made a study of her famous hymn, so I do not yet have further information about her.

May God Bless You and Your Family,

Dear Mike

I will be forever indebted to you. Thank you for these pictures. This is my father's family and I had almost everyone but them. I was hoping to get back to Pittsburgh to go there, but circumstances have prevented that. Thank you so much for taking the time to take these pictures. If you are related, I hope we will get to meet someday.

special request
hi mike, i just started on this journey and
learning heaps all the time.
i know that usual is a memorial is listed and
a request is made.

in my situation, the memorials are not listed but
i do have docs that verify 4 infant burials
at forest cemetery from cemetery staff. two babies are buried in one grave, so there are two plots.

i sort of gave up that i would be able to
obtain photos. i live in california. i have done
considerable research to doc my armenian
ancestors and will be composing a digital album
to share with family. these pix are the last pieces of my puzzle.

i would gladly fund your time and effort on my
family's behalf. please let me know if this is
all the best, marilyn

Edward L Strother
Use of photo
Hi Mike,
I was delighted to find your photos of the tombstone for Sarah Strother (1760-1822) on the Find A Grave Web site. May I have your permission to use the photos on another Web site?

I am a member of the William Strother Society and responsible for maintenance of their Web site at . Sarah Strother is descended from William Strother, who died in King George County in 1702. I would like to include your photo with the personal information for Sarah that is included in the Strother family database on that Web site. Of course, we would note that the photo was provided "Photo courtesy of Mike Reed at Find A Grave."

I appreciate your help with this request.
