|Bio and Links|
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.

Thanks for all you have done and I enjoyed the article in the paper so much that I have shared it on my facebook page. Others might follow in your hobby through it. I can't think of a better way to spend our time!

Thank you so much for the photo of my great grand mother's headstone. I really appreciate you taking the time to do this.
|Matt McCann||Thank you for Rolf Herbst|
Thank you very much for the very nice photo of Rolf Herbst and Irmgard.
I believe these are cousins of mine, related on my mother's side. German immigrants. I don't have much information about them, so the dates provided on the headstone will be extremely helpful in my research.
I really appreciate your time and effort!
|Allene Brewer Rauh||Thanks so much|
You are amazing. You do so much.

Brian-Thank you for photographing the headstones for Lewis Benton Carvell (#66133850) and his wife Martha M. Carvell (#59779216). May I have your permission to add their headstone picture to my WikiTree page for each one of them? I am a Carvell research and Lewis B. is the cousin of my g-g-grandfather, Jeremiah Mark Carvell.
You can see Jeremiah's entry at http://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Carvell-50
Thank you for your consideration -
