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.
gertrude lucy owens gallagher re: Gertrude born 1900 died 1987 buried at All Saints cemetery in Delaware... The sibling list for her is incomplete. There was another brother named Joseph Owens. He lived near Aston or Boothwyn, Pennsylvania, near Claymont, Delaware. Although he lived nearby, Gertrude did not like Joe very much and they never visited. She disapproved of his drinking. Maybe that's a factor in his absence from the sibling list. She felt much closer to her other brother who lived in Mount Carmel, PA. He is the one who appears on the list.
RE: Ethel A Smith (1909-1993) and Gordon C Smith (1909-1960) Awesome thanks Eric. The details in the marriage record connects a lot of dots. Gordon died in PA so I have the death certificate. This has been an interesting trip as my cousin was always told he was reported as MIA from WW2 and never knew what happen to him. Appears to be an untold story here...Kelly
You posted memorials for the two people above. Do you know anything about them? They are relatives of mine and I have some info but nothing about when they got married or children. Gordon Calvin was born in Canada and I believe Ethel Agnes (nee Foley) was born in Marlborough Mass. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks. Kelly M Smith (Mr.)
Valeria Robino Eric, remember me? I didn't know the Robinos had a child that died. Valeria was born 5 Feb 1922 and died 9 Nov 1923 and was buried at Cathedral Cemetery, Section 13D, Grave 6721 on 10 Nov 1923. Her parents were Frank (Sr.) and Tersilla (Casaroni) Robino and she was sister to Louis, John, Josephine, Charles, Frank (Jr.), Mary and Angelina.
