Bio and Links
Bio Photo I developed an interest in genealogy after a family reunion—it started with just my family, and now extends beyond. In my wildest dreams I could not have imagined spending so much time in cemeteries photographing headstones throughout Lake, Mendocino, Napa, Solano and Sonoma counties.

If you submit a VALID edit request and it's denied, don't worry, it doesn't end there. Forward your declined edit request to Your request will be reviewed by Admin.

Thank you to those of you who have submitted edit requests. Your time and effort is truly appreciated.

My personal plea to photo volunteers. Photograph with a quality camera that would produce a nice, clear image. Photograph the entire monument (not just the engraving or plaque), marker, crypt or niche (avoid over cropping). It's okay to gently sweep off debris. I realize not all markers have weathered well, and some are covered with lichen, so do your best to get a good photo suitable for posting.

Find a Grave's Quick Tips (helpful to NEW users):
• Uploading photos
• Memorial naming conventions
• Suggest a correction (SAC) via the edit tab
• About duplicates
• Transferring memorials (Transfer requests will be for direct relatives within four generations. This would be your siblings, parents, grandparents, great-grandparents, children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren.)
• Women married more than once
• No posting of obituaries
• Virtual flowers (NO biographical info)

Per Find a Graves FAQs, please DO NOT
• add newspaper article or obituary scans. The photo section is reserved for headstone/grave photos and possibly a portrait photo of the person, if that photo is owned by you
• copy and post photographs from obituary or funeral home websites (unless you personally are the photographer), as they are protected by copyright law. Find A Grave reserves the right to remove obituary notices and photographs from memorial records
• include website addresses that may be listed in the obituary as they usually expire within a year after the obituary is printed

How do I enter a memorial when I am uncertain how many are buried in the grave?
Only one memorial per person. Please do not create a family/group memorial. Instead each known person has an individual memorial. List as follows:
First: Infant
Middle: Twin Son or Daughter
Last: Doe

All of the photos I post to Find a Grave are photos that I have taken myself (except family photos or those I have stated were courtesy of someone else) therefore, if you would like to use one of my photos please ask.
