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.

RE: Thanks much!
That would be awesome (if you could take pics) in White Chapel!! I got about 75% through the Apostles section - that's as far as I got - so feel free to pick another section(s) - just let me know (so we don't overlap) - if I EVER get back out there!!

RE: Thanks much!
For White Chapel - I'll send along the maps via email. I went over last year to take pics and started with the Apostles section - taking pics - but they take so much time since you have to clean a lot - up and down - sore knees; legs, etc... I didn't finish that section since I ran out of time, energy and weather - and I haven't gotten back.... And it looks like find-a-grave member Cathy Alton fulfills photo requests for there which is nice... I'm not sure when I'll get back, my schedule seems much busier so far this year.... My goal is to get ALL pics at some point..... so we'll see - any help would definitely be appreciated!!!!

You're so very welcome!!! I have lot maps from the cemetery office - some of them are quite hard to read - but help!!! If you want them - let me know - glad you were able to find who you were looking for - that cemetery isn't easy with all the flat markers - you can wander for hours trying to find someone!!!!
