Bio and Links
Bio Photo I started going to cemeteries in geneology searches. As I went thru the cemeteries I realized how much the stones wear down (and all the other factors - cemeteries not being kept up, vandalism, etc) and that someday you wouldn't be able to read those stones.

I also realized what great things people were doing by taking pics, and volunteering to take pics, for people who were looking for their family and couldn't get to the area.

So...I starting taking pictures myself. Now that we have digital cameras all it costs me is my time. And the results are great...people find family they're looking for and most importantly, those that were buried in the cemetery and the stones were put up for are not forgotten.

Thank you so much for finding my 2nd great grandfather grave stone. I started this trek with rumors and lies and found so much of my family's history which was hidden for years. This link just confirms my hard work has been so worth it!

You sent an edit for Harriet Hinman Sherman's spouse to be "Adell Hinman." Don't you mean her father?
