Bio and Links
All photos of graves that I have posted were taken by me and may be copied freely and posted on other websites. There is no need to credit me or identify me when they are so used and no need to request permission beforehand. I won't be annoyed if you do anyway, but it really isn't necessary for the grave photos taken by me. Most photos of persons that I have posted were not taken by me. Please check the photo caption to determine the source (most often an obituary).

The photos were taken with a Sony Cybershot camera, which takes 4896x3672 (18M-pixel) images. The original JPG files are 6-7 MB in size. I then use GIMP, an open source image processing program that can be downloaded for free from, to rotate, crop and rescale the images. Usually I set the horizontal resolution to 1200 pixels, sometimes up to 1600 for panoramic scenes. I use a compression "quality" setting of 50 to 70, most often 60 to 65. The resulting picture files are usually 250 to 300 kB, with some up to 400 kB. Limiting the file size to that range allows snappy downloads when opening the image at full resolution.

Lafayette Woerner
I wonder why they would list him on two different monuments?

I have deleted the duplicate although I guess I should have just changed it to a cenotaph.

Beatrice C Ryan Carney
You state that she was born in England B.I.

She was born in Wolverhampton, Staffordshire, England... Not British India.

If you need a birth record, can supply one.
Beatrice is a relative and I would appreciate a
correction when you have time.
