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 using the edit tab. 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.

Found a relative
Corporal Ronald Pickthall is my great uncle on my mother's side, her father's brother. Of the four that went to war, he was the one that didn't come home. Seeing his name makes WW1 more of a reality. Thank you for having this site

I think I may have failed to thank you for posting a new photo of their headstone. I do appreciate the new photograph as I am able to read the inscription. Thanks for your work at findagrave.

Gravesite of Keegans
Dear Paul,

Thanks so much for locating this gravesite and taking photos. It is very meaningful to view these photos. I live in California, so it would be difficult for me to locate and photograph this grave. I greatly appreciate your assistance.
