|Bio and Links|
I'm a retired librarian and a stickler for details. I started taking photos of grave markers after someone was kind enough to take photos of the final resting spots of some of my ancestors. Since then, I have been systematically taking photos of each and every identifiable grave in my area and uploading the photos and information to Find-a-Grave. I like to find the people who slipped through the cracks, who aren't already on Find-a-Grave. I especially enjoy giving other people the same feeling that I got when I first looked upon the grave of my great grandfather. And I feel like I am doing something that is important to future generations. Grave markers don't last forever. If we can capture them now and put the photo on Find-a-Grave, then hopefully they will be available for all posterity.|
As regards the photos I have uploaded to Findagrave.com:
I, the copyright holder of these photos, release them into the public domain. This applies worldwide.
In some countries this may not be legally possible; if so:
I grant anyone the right to use my Findagrave.com photos for any legal purpose, without any conditions, unless such conditions are required by law.

|jamn2dblues||RE: Photo of Bryn Zion Church you posted|
I will do that.... I have photographed their so many times.... if we can get enough people to clean and repair/dig out the stones, I would be willing... but it is too big of a job for me. Please let me know. My Burrows family there mean a lot to me, for William D. is my 4th GG.

Hey Ruth, To avoid future confusion ... I've modified both of her records instead of deleting one. :-)
Her record now:
|OPPSheryl||Susanna Knobloch Lehmann|
Just a note to let you know that I added an obit t her memorial. Thought you might be interested.
|Russ Pickett||RE: Solomon Sharp|
Thanks Ruth ... I always appreciate your work.

Hey Ruth, Can you turn his photo around ... I have a family member looking at it and noticed.
|David P. Wilson||RE: George Knowles request - Odd Fellows, Smyrna, DE|
Thanks so very, very much for doing the sluething and taking the plot overview picture pertaining to George Knowles' grave location! You're the best!
I apologize for not responding and thanking you sooner, but actually have never, as of yet, received an e-mail (or any other type) notification by Find A Grave that you had left me a message on my Find A Grave home page, so wasn't aware you had/have until a few minutes ago just happening to scroll down there and found your message - which has been there, unknown to me, for days, I see. I haven't been getting any type automatic Find A Grave nofications correspondence in several days about anything else, either, so don't know what the reason may be.
At any rate, I am deeply grateful to you for having investigated about George's grave location, then taking a wonderful picture of the location you were informed of. You're terrific!
Best regards, Dave
