Saving Cream, etc.
FindaGrave rules prohibit disturbing a stone in any way. Please do not recommend or use this technique.

Are there any suggestions in order to take a photo of a headstone that is hard to read?
Unless you are related to the interred on the headstone in question, DO NOT do anything to the headstone. We DO NOT recommend you do anything to the headstone to make it easier to read or easier to photograph. If it is a flat grave marker, you may be able to brush off loose dirt and debris. If the grave marker is in the shade or has little sun, it is possible to try different angles in relation to the sun or to use something simple, like a mirror or aluminum foil, to reflect sunlight onto a headstone face that is shaded and thus difficult to read in a photo. This does not in any way alter the stone itself, and one does not even need to touch the stone in order to reflect light. Harmless and effective solution for dark or shaded faces of grave markers, which improves the resulting photo.

RE: Thank you!
Wow, shaving cream and a squeegie? I've actually never done a "chalking." I have used epoxy and put some of my people back up on their stands. I'll have to keep that in mind. Sorry we couldn't find them; we felt let down. However I've never seen a cem with so many old intact graves that were illegible. Usually the vandals knock everything down!

RE: Thank you!
You are welcome. It was the strangest thing. I pulled in, parked and the very first marker I looked at was Charles Knight! And his neighboring stone of Charles Beaudoen had a request as well. I got lucky.

RE: Steven Longdo?
Peg, Thank you for the request and for the follow up e-mail. I have already fulfilled it with the two photos I had on my computer. Don't know why I didn't post them when I took them. I don't usually wait for a request. I don't believe there were any dates on this monument.

RE: Steven Longdo?
Peg, Just answered my own questions. I took those photos in June of 2012 and I actually do have a picture (two, in fact) of Stephen Longdo's grave though in was very light and didn't photograph real well (hence, one of the pictures in a closeup). Please do put in the request but send me the e-mail so I can claim it immediately before someone else does.

RE: Steven Longdo?
I will do my best. Please put in the request ASAP because I'll be heading to Florida in another month or so. When did I write the message you are referring to and at which cemetery (?Fairview in Gaylord or Mancelona?)? Please send me a separate e-mail to mgrindol@avci.net (put the words "Find A Grave" in the subject head) as well as placing the request through Find A Grave.
