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!

Thanks for the photo! Looks like a lot of unmarked graves in that section.

Hi Phillip

Thank you for the grave photo for Rose Jagodzinski. I can't make out what's on either stone. Can you please transcribe it for me?
Thanks so much,

RE: Calvary Cemetery death dates!
Thank you for the update on that difference between death and burial dates. I didn't know that they were actually different. Also, the pictures look great! Thanks for going out and getting them! Peace - Matthew

Thank you for taking the photo of the unmarked grave of Angelica Lomonace, which I do believe is Angelica LoMonaco. Will try to see if the sisters have any records of her. During the depression, very hard times for many families. Thanks you again for finding her gravesite at Holy Cross. Really like how you did the photo of her unmarked grave.
