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!

Thank you so much for the beautiful photographs! Alfred may be my distant cousin but it is still greatly appreciated.

Kenney, Fuchs, et. al.
A word of thanks for your prompt action on all of my requests. I am working with a relative who has the family bible and some other documentation. Together with the Archdiocesan Catholic Cemeteries excellent data base, and your photos and cooperation we are completing the documentation of their family. In a few years there will be no one alive to will remember these people.

Thank you for photographing Charles T Franklin's gravestone for us. My Mom, who will be 92 in July, was thrilled to see it. The photo is beautiful! We appreciate it very much, Phillip.

Glatting photo request
Phillip I saw you claimed this request. I had added the wide shot. I just posted it as a problem that the reason I did not get a close up was that the death year has not been inscribed yet. I had thought it made more sense to wait until the year had been inscribed to get a close up.

I had posted that in the caption of the photo, but apparently the person didn't see that.

The marker is on the right side just beyond the taller Lucey marker.

Phillip - thank you for the nice photo of the Schoenfelder gravesite. Surprised there were no markers for any of them, but appreciate you taking time to do this. Thanks again!!
