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.

Thanks for finding and photographing their headstone for me. I was previously told they had no headstone so this was a pleasant surprise.

Mt Hope Corrections

Been working on the corrections, appears that a spreadsheet was mutilated when it was imported. How did you figure out the first names of the people that are scrambled?

Eva F. Colvin Williams
THANK YOU so much for helping "reunite" Eva with most of her family. Yesterday morning she was just another "disappeared daughter." If not for your memorials, we Colvin cousins might never have known what happened to the Williams after they left PA.

Now additional details can be filled in. Try to be patient with me, Paul. I appreciate your current and future assistance.

Memorials for Hattie N., Hattie M. and Mildred Gray
Thank you so much for listing these memorials and then transferring them to me. Had you not listed them, I doubt that I would have ever found my great aunt and cousin. Bless you many times over! Please keep up the fabulous work that you're doing as it truly makes a difference.

RE: Olive West 96278628
Thank you I read it as 11 days, hence the error, but I've relooked and you are right. Thanks for the correction.
