Regarding photographs: If you take a photo that seems better than the one I have taken, by all means, post it! The quality and legibility of a photo depend on a lot of things--amount of sunlight, angle of sunlight, shading by trees, time of day, etc. Sometimes I get a good pic and sometimes I don't. A not-so-great pic is better than none at all.
Things I try to do (but don't always succeed in doing!) 1)Take pics on a sunny morning. 2)Don't get my shoes or other extraneous items/people in the pic! 3)Take the pic so the stone looks level, even if it isn't. 4)Crop my photos before posting so I don't have 50% grass and the stone is small and difficult to read. 5)Avoid getting a reflection of myself in the stone (and wear dark clothing to minimize that if it does happen). 6)Avoid casting shadows on the stone. 7)Check all sides of the stone.
If you are researching Missouri relatives, be sure to check out the state death certificate database, found here:
Always happy and eager to make corrections, additions or add links to memorials.
1/2015 update: Going through memorials I have transferred, I'm astonished at the number of people who wanted transfers but have done nothing with them. If you ask for a transfer, please add a bio, add a photo...at least add a flower!
RE: providence baptist in pettis county Well, unless they are one of the 4 stones I can't figure out, then they don't have a stone. I looked at them again to see if any looked like those Todd's, but my photos just aren't good enough to tell.
RE: providence baptist in pettis county Hi Carol! You are right! I did take photos of all the stones. I still have them all and I see there are a few I haven't ID'd yet. About 5 stones. One has Voncanon on it, but I can't tell just who it is for.
