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!

RE: Herman Wolf
Darn is right. I noticed it was only a month difference. To your credit, you were the one with the picture! Thanks for your help on this.

I found the last name on her obituary - after doing more digging I am not finding any sources so I will remove the edit request. She is not a relative of mine.

Thanks Phillip for catching the error. I'm really not sure how I made a duplicate on the exact same day, but I appreciate all your help!

Thanks again Phillip for taking the picture of this headstone. It seems I can always count on you to come to my rescue and take pictures of my Milwaukee clan. One day soon I am going to head out to Milwaukee to stand on the ground that was walked on by so many of my ancestors. When I do, I'd love to thank you in person if you have been a major instrument in my success.

I want to thank you for the photo of Joseph Hanel & his wife Veronica.

I could not figure out how to find them I think I found block 6 but wasn't sure of the section or lot. Is it alright to copy the photo for my album?
