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.
** Except coping them to another memorial on Find A Grave. Ask for me to copy 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!

RE: Rosemary Glaser
Phillip -

Thank you so much for making the time to find my mother's grave. I appreciate it so much. If there is anything I can help you with, please let me know.
(I posted this message as 'public' too....I am new to this site so I didn't realize you could message just one person).

Thanks again!

RE: Richard Budjac - Holy Cross, Milwaukee
Thank you for the photo of Richard's marker and the info about Cecelia's marker. The reason her grave is empty at Holy Cross is because she is buried in the Stephenson Township Cemetery in Stephenson, Michigan. That is where the rest of her family is buried. Cecelia and Richard were living in Milwaukee when Richard died. Since Cecelia died so many years later, perhaps her family didn't realize she had a gravesite next to Richard in Milwaukee and buried her in Stephenson instead. Diane

Eugene Bermans' grave site
Hi Phillip
First of all I would like to say thank you for taking the time to fulfill request for photographing Eugene Bermans' gravesite.
I am one of Eugene Bermans' daughters. My cousin's wife is helping me find info on my father's side. My mother and father split when my sister and I were very young. Our mother passed away in 1984 at age 44 from a brain anyersym, my sister and I found our father in 1986 thru letters he wrote our mother while he was in prison, he was in a hospital in Waukegan Illinois and was not well at the time. After Christmas in 1990 I received a call from the state of Illinois that he had passed. Since we were not in a position to pay for a funeral, I was told he was a veteran of the war and would be buried at riverside cemetery in california. Fast forward 30+ years and modern technology (the internet), I researched riverside cemetery only to find out his grave he was not there. I did somehow find he was buried at this cemetery, but did not go further until I found out my cousin's wife was into genealogy and could help me locate our father's side of family which we know nothing about. Sadly, my sister recently passed away at age 54 from lupus. I'm hoping to find out medical history on father's side and meet family members who are still living. Thank you again for your kindness. Sheri (Berman) Neumann

RE: Ida Berg
You know I thought we just about checked all the rolly tombstones! I guess not! You sure have a good eye!

Aw, that is so cute that your mom used to ride her grandmother's rolly pully one.

Thank you for your time on this marker. I really do appreciate it. Sweet dreams!
