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.

Daniel G. Stiles
I want to thank you for submitting photographs of the Daniel G. Stiles family plot, (6 plots). Without your hard work I would have never known that my great-grandmother, Dora E. (Stiles) Edwards had a baby sister and an uncle who, along with her mother, Stella Stiles, died within a year of each other. I also would not have known that Daniel does not have a headstone. It is now my goal to insure that the man that raised my great-grandmother receives that military marker that he deserves.

Thank you!
