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!

Hi Phillip, I see you found the Bergmann photo requests. THERE ARE I think over 100 over there, but I put the lot # on. Doing the best I can to figure out who they all are. Don't worry about all of them. Thank You dear friend!!!!

I checked the cemetery website records, and could not find this person there. You wanted me to add the cemetery as Calvary Cemetery in Milwaukee. Could you shed some light by double checking to ensure this is the correct person. Thank you...please feel free to email me directly.

RE: I haven't been doing this is 2 weeks
Cars can be a pain... I had transmission issues with mine recently. I do not want to get stranded at a cemetery so I was hanging closer to home.

I saw that Holy Cross has many photo requests. Mom and I were going to go today but its already raining at my house so we will try tomorrow or next weekend. My grandparents and great grandparents are all buried there so it will be nice for my mom to visit since she hasn't been there in a few years.

Hi there! I put the right photos with the correct Weber. I don't know how to move your photo up. I didn't mean to push yours down. I want your photos of John Weber at the top and mine at the bottom. If you could help me I would really appreciate it! Thanks for putting him on find a grave. Tammy
