I spend a lot of time in cemeteries, photographing, verifying and cleaning up gravesites, for the Historical Society, myself and Find-a-grave. It can be a lot of work, but the pleasure and satisfaction I receive is worth it all. I have many more pictures of headstones to be added to this site, as time allows, in cemeteries from the West coast to the East coast.|
I will be glad to look for your ancestor's grave in Lancaster County, PA, IF you have basic information to help me with your search.
I will, also be glad to transfer your ancestors grave to you, IF IT FALLS WITHIN FIND-A-GRAVES GUIDELINES AND IS NOT IN MY OWN FAMILY LINE.
I will add obituaries, but please do not ask me to add unverified biographies, and information that is only of interest to you. (trips you shared, hobbies of deceased, how they were sweet to you at Christmas, where they lived in the 1930 census, etc.) After all, this is not a genealogy site, but is a tool that can help Cemetery Historians as well as family historians and genealogists, alike.
I may on occasion add little sayings on headstones at your request, HOWEVER, it is up to my discretion. If you have something to add that I have mentioned above, please contact me and I will be more than happy to add it for you. I will be more than happy to link them to children, parents and spouses.
I have been inundated recently to add things like, "Sister" or "Mother." I feel the most important things on Memorials are Name, Dates and family links. I will add Biographies as long as it is just that, and not things like "My granny baked the best cookies" etc. I just do not have time to do that sort of thing.
I have received quite a few requests to transfer listings and thought this might be a good time to change my profile information to reflect my personal policy.
Enjoy my blog on graveyards, I've listed the URL below!

You're welcome. I know how confusing it can be. Some people don't actually go out there like you do. They just names on a list from somewhere and enter the name that the cemetery was 100 years ago! Keep up the good work!

Hi Linda, recently I sent an SAC requesting adding maiden name and links to parents which I have discovered were the incorrect Walker parents. I now have correct ones William Walker and Martha McCue, if you'd be so kind to forgive my error and link her to father 126872651 and mother 126872475. Sorry for inconvenience. and THANK YOU!

Linda, you're very welcome. I'm glad I am able to help out. Please feel free to use my photos as you wish.
|Birdtracker||RE: (Judge) Jacob Leader|
The picture came from some information on the Independence School District, along with the comment below. Mr. Leader was one of the first board members (of the Independence School District} elected for a term of one year. He served as a board member from September 18, 1866 until September 14, 1870. Please feel free to use the photo. I am glad is has been discovered by family.

Just noticed there are two of the same photos of Jane Sample Long's gravestone....
Would you consider deleting one of the photo?
Her number is: 36174796.
As always, I appreciate all your work in family research - especially in Lancaster Co, Pa.
Hello Jim and Linda,
I'm writing to ask if I have your permission to post some of your headstone photos in my public family tree? In any case, I very much appreciate the excellent photos posted here and your time and efforts!
