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.

Photos for Tom Hebert
Thank you so much for posting the photos of Tom Hebert's headstones. I worked for the Heberts for years and they were wonderful people. So glad to see their memorials are complete with headstone photos.

I appreciate your efforts more than you can imagine.

Kindest regards,

RE: Norma Kappus
It was my mistake, I hit the wrong cemetery when I entered it. When I needed a photo of the stone I couldn't find a location to give them. Then when I told you it was a duplicate, I forget to ask you to add the photo before deleting it. Thanks for doing it.

RE: Burnard Rosenthal memorial
Thanks for your reply, I sent the following message to the other administrator:

Hi, the memorial you created for Burnard Rosenthal is a duplicate memorial, and also he is listed as being buried in the incorrect cemetery--the DRAMMEN TOWNSHIP CEMETERY is not the cemetery where Burnard is buried. The correct cemetery is the DRAMMEN LUTHERAN CEMETERY and there are over 643 interments listed including many members of his family. I was at the funeral on Saturday, Bernard was the first cousin of my wife's father. Could you please delete your memorial as Find A Grave Memorial #166999698 is correct with the proper links. Thank you, Brian Tanning
