Bio and Links
All photos of graves that I have posted were taken by me and may be copied freely and posted on other websites. There is no need to credit me or identify me when they are so used and no need to request permission beforehand. I won't be annoyed if you do anyway, but it really isn't necessary for the grave photos taken by me. Most photos of persons that I have posted were not taken by me. Please check the photo caption to determine the source (most often an obituary).

The photos were taken with a Sony Cybershot camera, which takes 4896x3672 (18M-pixel) images. The original JPG files are 6-7 MB in size. I then use GIMP, an open source image processing program that can be downloaded for free from gimp.org, to rotate, crop and rescale the images. Usually I set the horizontal resolution to 1200 pixels, sometimes up to 1600 for panoramic scenes. I use a compression "quality" setting of 50 to 70, most often 60 to 65. The resulting picture files are usually 250 to 300 kB, with some up to 400 kB. Limiting the file size to that range allows snappy downloads when opening the image at full resolution.

You're very welcome for the middle name of Aloysius, I suggested! It looks much better.

Tekla Strekier
Hello,

Tekla Strekier is one of my maternal 3 great grandmothers. This is my living maternal grandmother's great grandmother. I was wondering if you would be able to transfer management of the memorial to me? Thanks for creating the memorial. I've been trying so long to find information on my maternal grandmother's side of the family without much luck until I did ancestry.com's DNA test.

RE: Rolla Damsell
I do not know who Rolla Damsell is. Frances was married to William R. Tolbert on 25 October 1945 in
Wilmington, New Castle, Delaware. If I added Rolla as a spouse it was totally an error maybe in typing a wrong number. Sorry about that.
