Bio Photo ===========================
Please use the edit tab and SAC to ask for a transfer or update.

I am retired so I have time to walk through the cemeteries and take pictures. In mid July 2010 I started a project to record as many memorials for the cemeteries in my county (Broome, NY) with pictures that I could. This project is drawing to a close. I have completed all the cemeteries that I am working on. There are still 4 other cemeteries being worked on by others. I have moved on to cemeteries in Susquehanna PA and Tioga NY.

The following link will show all the cemeteries in the surrounding counties photographed (by me and others!) and added to Find A Grave:

Broome County NY Cemeteries
Tioga County NY Cemeteries
Susquehanna County PA Cemeteries

If I have added memorials for any of your relatives, please thank me by visiting a nearby cemetery and add the gravestones there for others to find their relatives.

You have my permission to use any picture taken by me for private uses. For public use, you may use them as long as I am given credit. For commercial use, please contact me.

If any of the memorials I have created need updates, please contact me. If any are a relative of yours and you want to manage them, let me know and I will transfer them. Please use the edit tab and SAC to ask for a transfer or update.

Prospect Hill Cemetery
Thanks for photographing this cemetery. My paternal grandmother's family (Sager & Barden) are buried there. I had the privilege to visit and photograph some of it in 2010 with my father who saw his ancestors graves for the first time. He stood by his 2nd great-grandfather's grave stone and we took a photo. I am a volunteer photographer here in South Carolina for Find A Grave. Great job!

Thanks for the addition of middle name and so sorry I made the spelling mistake and caused you to have to do it twice. It's so nice to work with people like you who understand we can all make mistakes. I wish you the best.

Hi Paul,
I have finally managed to edit and combine the two memorials for my mom. If you are still willing to transfer this memorial to me, I would be honored. Thanks again for all the time and effort you put into Find a Grave.
Lee, Ruth Columbia's daughter

Hello Paul, Just wanted to let you know I sent you an edit request to add some military information to the "Bio" section of his memorial. He served in two different units. Thanks Paul Turner
