I discovered Find A Grave while searching for the grave of my grandfather's brother. This simple little search sent me on a mission to search for my ancestors and get some of my family history on Find A Grave. Once I got hooked on genealogy, I decided I could help others by adding names to the site so that sent me onto my new "hobby" - photographing graves, and now I am totally addicted. I hope my work on Find A Grave will help others in their search or allow them to "visit" a loved one's grave. |
I'm not one of those people who think they give a prize for managing the most memorials. If you have any connection to someone that I have created a memorial for, I will gladly transfer it, as long as they are not in my tree.
The Bismarck Tribune did a very nice article on my cemetery project a while back. Click Here to view the article.
I have set up a Tribalpages family tree. Click on the link below to view it.
If I have taken a photograph of your ancestor's tombstone and it is of poor quality (shadows/overgrown with grass/hard to read/etc), please let me know and I will see what I can do about taking a better one. It is hard to take good photographs of all the markers when I am at a cemetery as the angle of the sun is often poor the stones don't photograph well.
If I have helped you in your search, please return the favor and "pay it forward" and do your part to help out someone else.

Thank you for adding Maria picture on Find A Grave site. We don't get to her grave site because of the distance from Michigan. Thanks from all or family.
|DG Bender||Re: Zimmermann Burials|
Thank you very much Brian for your ongoing photo work.
Your excellent cooperation and thoughtfulness is second to none! Therefore if you wish to maintain any memorial that I presently control, by all means feel free to ask.

Thank you for this correction. I have moved the memorial to the cemetery you requested.
Thank you for grabbing those pictures for me so fast! Have a great day. Scott

Holy moly! Good luck with all of those. May take a little while for you! Have fun.

Hi Debbie, You're very welcome. I am spending my evening posting gravestone photos. I was at Hebron yesterday taking over 800 gravestone photos so I have lots of work to do.
