Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been taking tombstone pictures since 2009.

I also want to thank my tombstone picture taking friend Kathi. Together we have over 4000,000 tombstone picture. We have finished several cemeteries in the Westmoreland County area.

With the help of our friend Bonnie who is adding pictures to find a grave. We hope to get the cemeteries loaded quicker.

If you are requesting a memorial transfer please give me the memorial number for each person you want. Also your find a grave number so I can transfer with out searching.

If I have a duplicate up in a cemetery please contact me via the memorial. The oldest memorial date stays up per Find a Grave rules.

Again if you are related I will gladly transfer.

Thank you

Happy Hunting

Thank you for making correction and additions. I did more research to get more information and check where they were buried.

This person I believe to be my Grandfather. He met my Grandmother in Nitro, WV in 1936. I'd like to find out if he had any other children that I could contact. My Father died four years ago. And I'd like to tell them about it.

RE: Nettie Snively
Hi, thank you for your reply.
I'm 100% sure that Albert and Nettie Snively records have to be merged, because they refer to the same persons.
If you read the obituary on your record for Albert (97412468), it says that Albert married Nettie Christner. His birth date is November 28, 1869 (November 29, 1869 on the other record!).
In my opinion, birth and death dates for Nettie on the other record (39185073) are wrong. In the obituary of Albert it says that Nettie died in 1918. There are no tomb stone photos in Byerly Freeman Cemetery for both persons, so I think that those records were added because Albert's parents, Hiram and Mary Ann, are buried in that cemetery but that Albert and Nettie are buried in Saint Clair Cemetery.
I think that on findagrave a merge function is available, because sometimes for other records I saw a message: "This record has been merged with this one" and there was a link to the new record.
I will write a message to the person who added Byerly Freeman Cemetery's records too.

Re: Mancinis in Monongahela Cemetery
Hi Franny--thanks so much for the work that you do. I appreciate the photos of the Mancini family graves at Monongahela Cemetery. I don't live locally, so I've never seen them before. --Diane Mancini

Me again. We have to quit meeting like this. ;-)

I'm working on my husband's genealogy today, only to learn that you have entered all (but one) of the ones I've come across so far in St. Mary's Cemetery in Latrobe. If you'd be willing to transfer, this is a link to the ones I've found so far:

So grateful for your passion and willingness to share!

With much appreciation,

RE: David & Evanell Connors
Thanks for the info!! I was able to find a big lead on the family search site. Yes Evanelle was married to a woods before she married my great grandfather that is where that name comes in at. This family tree thing is very time consuming especially since I am working on both my parents side of the family. Again I appreciate the guidance on where all to look. It was a huge help.

David & Evanell Connors
Franny the tombstone you posted are of my paternal great grandparents grave. I am only recently trying to trace my family tree on my fathers side & am having quite the time or there isn't much info out there or I am not finding it on the right sites. If there is any info you can give me about either of the two I would greatly appreciate it. I can be reached at THANKS!!!

RE: Fred + Margaert Bruce
Dearest Franny,
Your kindness in finding and posting the obits for both Fred and Margaret is much appreciated. I'm sure that it will come in handy for other family members. I had surmised that Margaret must have moved to be with family after the death of Fred.
I just hope that I can pay your kindness forward.
Please let me know if I can ever be of help to you.
Once more, a very big Thank You.
