I discovered Find A Grave while searching for the grave of my grandfather's brother. This simple little search sent me on a mission to search for my ancestors and get some of my family history on Find A Grave. Once I got hooked on genealogy, I decided I could help others by adding names to the site so that sent me onto my new "hobby" - photographing graves, and now I am totally addicted. I hope my work on Find A Grave will help others in their search or allow them to "visit" a loved one's grave. |
I'm not one of those people who think they give a prize for managing the most memorials. If you have any connection to someone that I have created a memorial for, I will gladly transfer it, as long as they are not in my tree.
The Bismarck Tribune did a very nice article on my cemetery project a while back. Click Here to view the article.
I have set up a Tribalpages family tree. Click on the link below to view it.
If I have taken a photograph of your ancestor's tombstone and it is of poor quality (shadows/overgrown with grass/hard to read/etc), please let me know and I will see what I can do about taking a better one. It is hard to take good photographs of all the markers when I am at a cemetery as the angle of the sun is often poor the stones don't photograph well.
If I have helped you in your search, please return the favor and "pay it forward" and do your part to help out someone else.

First of all thank you for all you do for find-a-grave and for all of us that are unable to see our family's headstones in real life so I for one an so thankful there are people like you that give so much to others. THANK YOU SO MUCH...Next I would like to know if you would allow me to use your headstone photos on my ancestry family tree I would give you and find a grave credit for the use of it. I will wait for a reply. Just to let you know I would understand if your answer is no so by all means dont feel you have to do it. I thank you again and will be waiting for your reply. Jane Hall
Thanks for the headstone photos
