Bio and Links
I have an interest in Maine cemeteries and genealogy. I often walk through cemeteries up the coast in Maine and try to take photos of tombstones that are falling and breaking as it is sad to see. I am willing to share those photos as some descendants may never get a chance to see the actual tombstone. I take many photos of the same tombstone to include closeups and of course am reluctant to get rid of them. If I have taken the photo and you want copies of any other related to the monument and/or tombstone for your personal use just leave me a message so that I can email them to you.

Any photos that I have uploaded may be copied for your personal use only. None of the photos may be placed on another website, sold or bartered or used for commercial purposes.

If you want to use the photos for your personal use genealogy tree please feel free to do so but do not load them on as the tos there states that they can then do what they wish with the photo.

Almost all of the memorials I have entered are a result of "mowing rows" in larger cemeteries and photographing the whole smaller cemeteries.

I am way behind in posting the photos. If you want photos of a memorial I created you can use the request a photo option or you can leave me a message with the memorial names and numbers.

Samuel Wasserman grave marker photo
I just wanted to take a minute and thank you so much for taking the photo of Samuel Wasserman's grave marker. I appreciate it very much as this helps me to know that this is actually not the Samuel that I am looking for but might be some sort of relationship to the Wasserman family I am seeking.

Thank you ,

Thanks for taking the picture!

Thank you
I want to thank you for honouring my request for pictures.

It is the grave of my father's cousin (and his wife) that emigrated to the US from Sweden in the early years of the 20th century. My dad will be absolutely thrilled to see the pictures.

Best wishes and thanks again, Ulf

Transfer of James Ralph Martin
While I was at Christ Church Anglican Cemetery in Colchester taking photos I found James Ralph Martin marker inches away from James W. & Leita L. Martin. I am assuming that he is their son and therefore have transferred his Memorial to you.
