|Bio and Links|
I am a gravestone conservator, owning a small business that deals will the restoration and cleaning of historic gravestones and take great pride in fixing every single stone we take on. I am also a local history maniac, who has a hobby (some may call it an obsession) of finding and visiting old cemeteries, especially small, rural plots. If I have a memorial of someone that is in your family or very close to you, I would be more than happy to transfer it to you. Also, if you have any extra information for any memorial I have, please feel free to send me an email. I will update the memorial very quickly. (I secretly love getting added information or corrections to the memorials I upload.)|

|Lori Schell||RE: Hurting Stones and not knowing it|
People have good intentions, but just don't understand the difference in stone, or what they are doing when cleaning and scrubbing them. I bought"Rock of Ages" for my brother. Meaning if anything grows on the stone the stone company has to come out and care for the stone for the life of it. It is stamped into the stone. I have already had the company come once in 20 years to clean the stone proper and it's about ready again at no cost to me.
|Lori Schell||Hurting Stones and not knowing it|
Thank You Kurt, You don't know how many people I tell that they are hurting the stones when they are cleaning them, brushing them, scraping them, ect.
I seen this message you wrote:
Photos: (I know this is Bold But It Needs to be Said)
I noticed in some of your photos you posted that you rubbed chalk all over the stones to get the photographs. I am a gravestone conservator and I just wanted to let you know that putting chalk or anything else for that matter onto a gravestone causes damage and ill effects to the stones. Please do not put chalk, or shaving cream, or bleach, or anything else at all ever on a gravestone to aid in getting a photograph. You are causing more harm than good. Thanks
|Susan||White, Irvin Henry #3502611|
I'm looking for the wife of Irvin Henry White. Do you know if Zaida E. Adsit, White is buried next to her husband, Irvin, in the North Guilford Cemetery, Guilford, Chenango Co., New York?
You have added the memorial for Irvin.
Hope you might be able to help find her.
Thank you, Susan

RE:Infant death in St Peters Churchyard, Bainbridge.
This was my grandmother's sister and we had a stone put on it in 1987. According to your Find A Grave post, it sounds like there was a problem? I live out of state, so I haven't been back to check it! Is it possible for you to take a look if you are ever in that graveyard? The site it in the back right kind of in the center. I remember a BIG tree on the plot and the caretaker's hut being close. Thank you in advance for taking time to read this! Kathy

|Greg Volk||Willis Gifford 104856861|
Hi Kurt. This one looks a dup of Melissa Gifford 133095986, both having the same death date. My guess is that "Willis" is a mis-transcription of "Melissa". Thanks.
I sent you the wrong link. The correct Official update link is:
|Greg Volk||GPS coordinates for two cemeteries|
Hi Kurt. I found a couple interesting cemeteries that you transcribed, and now I'm trying to figure out where they are.
FYI, you can add GPS coordinates to Find A Grave by replying to the thread "Official: Cemetery Fix/Updates/Corrections".
You could either upload them yourself or send them to me and I'll upload them. I'm just hoping you can tell me where they are. Many thanks for all your work.
|Larry Wales||RE: Barnes Cemetery|
You're welcome, Larry
Thank you for the kind transfer of David Beebe. I love history too Kurt. Have fun hunting!
