Bio and Links
Bio Photo Been doing genealogy since 2000. Been photographing tombstones since 2002.

If you take a picture of a marker you should check the plot for other members of that family. Normally all members of a plot are family members even it they may have different surnames

To me the plot is more important then the one grave. If you find more family in the plot and want credit for them tell me and I will add the memorials and request pictures.

If I take a marker I will always check the area for more members of the family or take the others in the plot.

If you want a high-resolution image I keep the photo about a month or so. Or if local I can get them again.

Please note: Only speaking for myself and the photos that I take. Findagrave does have rules you should be aware of regarding copy or using photographs posted. Copywrite laws, etc. Please do not take this as permission for all photos at findagrave.

I am giving my permission for you to use my photos in any way you see fit for your family. To me they are just a rock with letters on them.

Request for Family Links / Transfers

I have been getting a number of weird requests in the last few months.

1. I double check all requests.
My checks many times add family links to the memorials.

2. If you tell me they are your relatives. I must assume they are my relatives too. I have the better claim. Tell me how your related!

On they have "U.S., Burial Registers, Military Posts and National Cemeteries, 1862-1960", don't trust the index, LOOK at the IMAGE!

Thank you.
Thank you for taking the time to photograph the Keller graves. They are my wife's great-grandparents.

re: Agnes Dieringer grave photo
Thanks for the note. I truly love the photos you annotate for unmarked graves. I've never seen better. I think I have all of Block 54 now on Find-A-Grave. I hope to be in Milwaukee in July and will try to photograph what hasn't been done by then.

Thank you for making the effort to take the marker pic. It's unfortunate that there is no stone. - Joe

Phillip, HELP!!
Hi Phillip. I made memorials to an extended family, most in the same place but I used all of my requests. Can you see if Isabelle can request for me #s (140724991, 140724945 and 140725088 (all Dropps)), (140724655 and 140724718 (Sikorskis) and (140725124 (Heller)). Thanks, Frank

RE: Edward Doro
Whether his death date will be cut is anyone's guess. It's been over a year now. Thanks for your help.
