Bio and Links
Bio Photo Thought for the day: If you're waiting for your chance to win the lottery, take a look at some of these headstones where the person lived a few decades, a few years, a few months or even just a few hours and then you'll realize you're already the big winner.

I've been doing general genealogy for a little over a year now (as of August '09). I get pictures of headstones here and there hoping it will help somebody somewhere and I consider it an honor to post cemetery information of the men and women that served this great land called the United States of America.

I've taken cemetery pictures in 32 states, Washington, DC and Canada and my favorite state for pics is definitely (southern) Louisiana.

Some of the surnames in my tree include Thompson, Liles, Southards, Chester, Stacks, Causey, Shipp and McDaniel.

The (famous) ancestor that I am most proud of is King Robert (the Bruce) I of Scotland.

UPDATE: April/2012 (I almost made it three years without putting some sort of gripe in my bio) - If you're going to ask for a transfer, please don't use some cheap excuse like, "I would like to link them to my family" or "I would like to make updates". Any knucklehead can do those things. Just ask for the transfer and I'll probably do it. I generally don't even care about the transfer guidelines. Honesty is more important. Just say (something along the lines of), "They are directly or indirectly related to me and I would like to have them."

Gripe #2 (July 2012) - Please don't post death certificates where you are supposed to put pictures of the person and headstone. Send a SAC with the birth and/or death information and parents if available. About the only thing left is what they died of and do we really need to know that?!?!

Thank you to all the
Many

Gravestone Photo Permission
I apologize if I missed your response to my 1/5/2014 message--here it is again:

I am happy to see that you photographed the gravestone of Wayne A. Alford in Gracelawn Memorial Park (Memorial# 16586795).

I would like to add this gravestone photo to the (non-profit) Alford American Family Association's collection of Delaware Obituaries, where his obituary is (or will be) included. You can see the current collection at http://www.alfordassociation.org/OBITS/DEOBIT.htm.

May I have your permission to include your gravestone photos? If so, the photo caption will say:

Photo from [cemetery name, city, county, state]—www.findagrave.com
Permission granted by the photographer, Cam Thompson

And thanks so much for your gravestone photo work!

Best regards,
Pamela Alford Thompson (Find A Grave #47195155)

There are two photos of this person as well. Would you consider removing your photo? The tree shaded the photo and the sun makes the other photo more easily readable. How do you connect to the Smith family? I was curious if you knew the J.W. connection to L.T.?

There are two photos for the same person. Your photo has the date of death 1908- the headstone reads June 1, 1903. Would you remove your photo, please.

RE: Tony Palermo

The thing I saw the name Anthony Palermo on the
grave stone and the name Tony on the memorial.
I didn't want the two to be confused as they are
not related.

Memorial transfer
Hello,

I was wondering if you would be willing to transfer the memorial for G.W. Patton (# 44986540) to me. He is related and I am working to make connections with his immediate family. Thank you.

I was at Washington Memorial today and Tony's
location has a plywood over the crept. Therefore
he and his father, Emil, are together.

Dear Cam
Are you telling me the name is same Tony I
submitted?
The head stone says Anthony and Anthony died in
1989.
Mine was named Tony and died 2015.
I know Tony is the nickname for Anthony.
Because I know Tony, he had no nickname.

Would you kindly transfer this memorial to me, he is in my husbands line ( a great uncle I do believe)? Thanks so much in advance.

While searching for Mattie Tuttle (to link her son) she did not show up in the search. This was due to two last names in that field. Asking if you might add only one last name so it will show up in a search for her. Her Memorial #75730124
