Please do not copy and post personal photographs of my family members to other websites such as ancestry.com without my permission. I do not have a problem with reusing my tombstone photos for your personal use, but credit would be a good idea as they are my photos. Also note that I did not take all of the photos on my memorials and can't give permission for the ones I didn't take to be reused.
My husband and I started trying to trace our roots back to Europe about 20 years ago. We were fortunate that several of our ancestors kept some records and created family books which were the start of our adventures. We were surprised to learn that both of our families had branches in this country since the 1700's. Most of the entries I've made have some connection to these families, although remote at times (cousins many times removed). A few are just made from photos taken as we walked a cemetery looking for our family members.
I do not intentionally link to burial unknowns for purposes of creating family trees. Please do not request such links. I will delete them if found.
RE: Thomas Reed Photo Glad to help!! About one month after I started this volunteering, a requestor asked if I could include a wide shot (I've been calling it "context") so he could see where the marker was in the immediate area. I thought that was a good idea & have been doing it ever since!
Merrill rome New york I went to the Rome Cemetery on Tuesday and cleaned off all the headstone in Lot 68. There is not a headstone for Jenette. there are 12 graves in this lot 68. They are all a person in them. The office did not have a grave listed for her just Section E Lot 68. The person at the office and I think that she is burried next to the Baby Lennox grave. From the Interment map it look big enough to do that. I have put pictures of all the headstone on find a grave memorial for each. Baby Lenox was not on find a grave so I did a memorial for the baby. Would you like me to transfer it to you? Also if you will send me your email address I will be happy to send you picture of the lot. I took several picture fromd different angles. Also I took a picture of the interment paper work for you. Julee My peroan email address is firstname.lastname@example.org
RE: Photos for Vaurice and Alda Weaver You are very welcome. It's always nice to see a photo of the loved ones on their memorials- and what a sweet couple they look to have been. We saw where Alda's memorial page had her final resting place as Curlew Memorial, and not Sylvan Abbey. We put in an edit for that so hopefully the photo can be changed. It was a very impressive area where their crypt is. And thank you for having the exact grave location - made it so much easier. Sylvan Abbey is a huge, spread out cemetery - so any direction is greatly appreciated. Also, thank you for all your kind words. If we can ever help out again, please just let us know.
Janette Merrill I have been to cemetery to look for Janette's headstone, but did not find one. Do you still want pictures of the family plot? I leave to go home in one week, so please let me know soon. Thanks Julee email@example.com
RE: William Swayzee If they take too long, I am willing to delete my memorial. Or I can do that now, and you won't have to wait. I'm a little curious as to how the merge system works; I have never used it!
