We are a father and daughter team of amatuer genealogists. Originally, most of the memorials we created were for family members and personal friends. We are now adding others. Please ask for transfers if we have added someone that has personal meaning to you.We are also volunteer photographers. Please feel free to use any photo we've posted to memorials for your family research. "DEAR ANCESTOR" Your tombstone stands among the rest; Neglected and alone.The name and date are chiseled outOn polished, marbled stone.It reaches out to all who careIt is too late to mourn.You did not know that I existYou died and I was born.Yet each of us are cells of youIn flesh, in blood, in bone.Our blood contracts and beats a pulseEntirely not our own.Dear Ancestor, the place you filledOne hundred years agoSpreads out among the ones you leftWho would have loved you so.I wonder if you lived and loved,I wonder if you knewThat someday I would find this spot,And come to visit you.

George and Helen Banta Thank you George and Terry for the photograph of my grandparents' stone in Ridgefield Cemetery, Ridgefield, NJ. I'm disabled and can no longer visit. My grandfather's parents, Stephen Banta and Mary F. Banta are there. My father's brother, Arthur and his wife Ethel are also there along with tons of relatives I don't even know. There are so many Banta's in that cemetery!
Dorothy Dully's grave Thank you so much for fulfilling my photo request. I was born and raised in Closter, but now live in Florida. That makes getting photos of long gone relatives difficult. Thanks again.
