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 for posting my g-g-grandparents information on-line and then transferring the management of their graves to me. I had the chance to visit their grave sites in Dryden, NY in 2010 but I never had the chance to post on-line. Thanks to your work I have made additional family connections! Best, Sonja

A belated thank you for Thomas' memorial. I've been sick all week and finally feel well enough to get back to work! I'll get more information added for Thomas but want you to know how much I appreciate your kindness!

Hi, I sent you correction through the edit tab to their plots. It's difficult to go by the books in this old section. I went out and took photos and they are in Sec A Lot 30, between to their daughter Ellen Cook Coats and son Alanson Cook, instead of Lot 9. Sorry about that.
