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 done. 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
Have started Chemung County - no map yet.

Cemeteries Statistics as of 07/20/2015 (by County):
.................... Broome NY .... Tioga NY
# Cems .......... 145 ............... 102
# Cmplt ......... 145 ............... 101

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.


I am submitting edits to move middle names/initials and/or maiden names from the first name field to the proper field. I am typically doing 20-50 per day for a cemetery. If you are receiving them and would like more or less per day, just let me know.

RE: Charles Polley
From now on, I will mention Find A Grave memorial #. I understand because I deal with so many, that I have no idea, now, who and where this person is. SORRY.

Hi Paul, I submitted an edit request linking him to his parents. Source is family records and the 1860 Census which lists him in the household of the parents I linked to, and his corresponding census age which corresponds to his memorial. Paul Turner

Thank you, Paul! Appreciate all you do and have accomplished to help those of us from afar. I think it has been awhile since I expressed my appreciation.

RE: Anthony Hengel
I know he had a lot of errors, etc on almost all of his memorials. Drove me crazy and there are still a lot of them. When he stopped doing Find A Grave I got quite a few transferred to me but now when I ask administration they tell me no since I am not a relative within guidelines. So I guess when the mistakes are found we will have to submit a SAC. thanks for the explanation.
