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!

Good morning Phillip. I wanted to thank you for the wonderful photo of Mr. Gorzalski's marker, that you added to his memorial on July 3. I apologize for the delay in this acknowledgement. He served in the same World War II combat outfit as did my beloved late father (the 325th GIR). Your kindness and your thoughtfulness is greatly appreciated. Thank you again so much!

RE: Constance Lubinska Kosinski
So when setting up the Find A Grave memorial should I display the name as written on the gravestone or their more americanized name? People doing searches may not ever find their memorial if they don't know their polish name. You are such a wonderful source of help. I really appreciate all your help and advice.

RE: Constance Lubinska Kosinski
Can you read what is written above Konstancya? I can't quite make out all the characters. Do you think this is her maiden name? Also, there is a SP between the letters I can't read and Konstancya do you know what this means? I have seen it or something like it on other graves.

do you still take photographs at calvary cemetery?
you were the only (much needed) voulenteer for so long. I have requested a picture of michael malia's grave who died in 1887. some of the requests here are over a year old. there are 23. If you are able I would greatly appreciate a photograph. Your work means so much to so many!!!!!
It's funny - everytime I request a milwaukee grave you fulfill it!!!

Thank you so much for your efforts in taking beautiful, clear and helpful pictures of the grave markers for my ancestors. It feels like opening a present when I get email saying one of my photo requests have been successfully completed. I especially appreciate that go to the extra effort to annotate the pictures to show where a grave is located even if there is no marker or visual information about who is buried there. Chances are that I will never be in the Milwaukee area in person so I really am grateful for wonderful, dedicated people like you. Again, thanks so much for your help.

I have added , per your request. I am
curious, are you by chance an Ehlenbach?
Emma's maiden name was Underriner. She and
my Gr. grandfather August Underriner were
brother and sister.

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.
