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 so much for transferring this memorial in Mount Olivet Cemetery - I have such hopes of linking all 9 children of Fran & Angelina Herbes!

Thank you so very much for claiming my requests for photos of my Greatgrandparents headstones. I only hope they have a marker on their grave and you are not going on a wild goose chase for me. I just want you to know how very much I appreciate you doing this and how quickly you accepted my request.

RE: Near the Janka Family
All sides checked. Markers are in beautiful shape, with the dates visible like new. I did look by date but not +or - five days. I have them on a list where I can look them up at the courthouse. Frank

Near the Janka Family
Hi Phillip. I was at Holy Trinity a week ago and photographed two graves near the Jankas. No First or last names, only the dates May 23, 1858 - September 10, 1902, and April 22, 1873 - November 29, 1909. Do you know how I can get the names on these two? Frank
