I'd been researching my family for about six years and found Find A Grave to be most helpful. Once I'd finished my research I decided to create some memorials for folk in my family so as to provide links to others that were already here and connect the dots so to speak (and no, I'm not creating a tree). That, in turn, led me to do photographic work in two local historic cemeteries so as to help others.
In 2012 I finished working in the historic Jacksonville Cemetery in Jacksonville, Oregon and in 2013 the historic Hargadine Cemetery in Ashland, Oregon taking photos where memorials lacked them and adding memorials when I came across folks what didn't have one (with the exception of very recent burials).
Anyone may use my photos for anything other than commercial purposes or the creation of duplicate memorials on Find A Grave. You may copy and post them to other websites or use them in your family history or tree. For non-commercial uses and exempting creation of duplicate memorials my photos are gifts. It would be nice if you gave credit if you use them but I'm not requiring that.
I only manage memorials that are for family members. If you can document a closer relation to any of them than me then I'll transfer management; otherwise I won't.
RE: Shelhorn sources Hi John, I'm very interested in any info you have on the Schelhorn/Shelhorns. I have copies of Johann Casper's baptism record, their marriage record, and the baptism record of their oldest child, Julius Ludwig "Lewis" all from Germany. What is your wife's ancestor's name, who was a child of Casper? I know that Lena's death record has a different maiden name and don't know where that came from. Thanks for any info. Mary
