RE: stinson
No, I don't do anything to the photo except try to get a close-up, crop, & then resize to upload. When I was taking some pictures on a rainy, drizzly day, I noticed that on some stones the lettering stands out when wet & easier to read. Especially gray stones. That's what the weather was like when I took the Stinson pictures. I also, on sunny days, use a large mirror to reflect the sunlight off the stone. This also brings out the lettering, especially on white tombstones.

Thanks again for doing all the edits I have been submitting.

Thank you.

RE: stinson
Sorry, I am not sure what it is you are asking about the photos. Hope they have been OK. I like to be able to read the inscriptions on the tombstone pictures that I add to Find-A-Grave. Find A Grave is a good tool to use doing genealogy.

Thank you.

RE: John Cronau
Thanks for the Cronau information. Thanks also for all the edits you have processed for me. I am updating on my mother's side of the family buried in Kewanee.

Thank you.

Clarence W Olson
Thank you so much for adding my father's memorial. (Clarence W Olson American Mausoleum, Peoria, IL.) If you had not, I am not sure I would ever have found him. We lost contact in 1955 and I had no record of his death. I have added a 1937 photo of him to the memorial. Was the information you added from his obit? If so, can you tell me what newspaper and date of the obit. I would like to see if I can get a copy.
You can contact me via email

Hoffman vs Incorrect "Huffman"
It is disappointing that you choose to perptuate errata of a news typo, instead of correcting the spelling, despite supporting evidence, but I suppose that is your intention.

RE: Can't read your mind
Btw, no, you can't read my mind, but I assume you can read your own memorials. Glad you find that info useful!

RE: Can't read your mind
I have no problem with providing sources. Most people don't want it, or make note of it, though it would be great, if they did. I have not observed that you ever post source info, but if you feel it makes things "even," since I request it, I will be glad to send it, anyway.
