Bio and Links
Bio Photo Retired and loving it. Enjoy old cemeteries and photographing the markers. Photography of the markers is my primary focus.

I prefer going out and photographing markers instead of dealing with fraudulent memorials with unverified information and subsequent bogus family links. Please help by refraining from creating bogus memorials and requesting links when you have little or no PRIMARY evidence of a burial.

Requests to link families will be denied if I have no verification of accuracy.

Requests to add links with Burial unknowns in ANY form will be denied, per Find a Grave Policy. Disguising a Burial Unknown to look 'legitimate' usually is very evident and will be reported to management. Adding 'guesses' as to dates, cemeteries and location of deaths is fraud. If the burial is not a KNOWN BURIAL identified with an actual death date, it IS a Burial Unknown.

Adding family links without adequate research and documentation tends to create MULTIPLE errors that require hours of work to remove, if they get corrected at all. It is the responsibility of the requestor to do the research, not the memorial manager who did the photos.

A denial is not personal rejection of you. Accept it and move on.

Thank you to all the volunteers who donate their hours, photos, research and help to others seeking their missing family and friends.

I sent you two edits but I was hoping you would transfer her to me #47585837. I have all of her children I would like to add. Many are not identified in a cemetery but I have Canadian death records.
Thank you

RE: Lloyd Van Slyke marker photo
I am so sorry that the marker is so difficult to read, but the gravestone is in dire need of a good cleaning.

I think you mixed up Dorothy's names. She's buried beside her sis Leona; surnames Wilhelm. It should be Dorothy I. (Wilhelm) Johnson, married Mr. Johnson, buried in her parents' plot. Right?

I will try to find out if Yvonne Haynes' cremains are still buried at Fort Huachuca.

Thanks, and have an awesome day,
