Bio and Links
Bio Photo I'm a genealogy enthusiast, a Civil War & U.S. military history buff and have always had a fascination with cemeteries. I'm also a USAF veteran of the Persian Gulf War, a second generation hillbilly and recently commissioned as a Kentucky Colonel. Being a career NCO (former USAF Technical Sergeant), I occasionally struggle with this. However, the stripes usually win.

My current Find-A-Grave projects are locating graves and updating existing memorials for members of two of my great-great-grandfather's Civil War regiments (23rd Kentucky and 28th Ohio Infantries, both Union). I'm also very active at photographing Evergreen Cemetery in Southgate, Campbell County, Kentucky.

Most of my memorials are family, but I do enter military veterans and other graves that may catch my eye from time to time. If I have a memorial of a relative or friend of yours, send me a transfer request by way of a SAC. I don't follow FAG's transfer guidelines as if they were the Ten Commandments like some folks do. If you have ever refused to transfer the memorial of a relative or close friend to someone (simply because the guidelines say that "you don't have to") - shame on you. That's just plain mean. What a truly horrible person it takes to be selfish with the memory of someone's deceased friend or loved one.

Wikipedias definition of "guidelines":

A guideline is a statement by which to determine a course of action. A guideline aims to streamline particular processes according to a set routine or sound practice. By definition, following a guideline is never mandatory. Guidelines are not binding and are not enforced..

Please feel free to use my grave marker photos for your personal use.
I always put some kind of note in the photo caption regarding the photo I took, usually the date and place taken. If there was no marker, I will take a photo of the lot (or lot marker, if available) and note it in the caption.

Photo on memorial# 94860719-James Ruedebusch
I wanted to ask you if I could use the photo you took for this memorial on 2 new memorials that I am setting up for James' parents. I took a photo at the cemetery(St.Mary's-Ft.Thomas) but your photo is much better. I won't alter the photo and will leave your watermark intact. Let me know if that is okay. Thanks, Sue

Awesome photos. Many thanks for taking them for me. Looks like you have beautiful weather. We've had so much rain here in October that it broke a 103 year old record. SO tired of rain.

RE: Johannes Evilsizor
LOL !!! Thanksgiving dinner would be great except we sold our home and 7 acres of land here in Texas to retire so we could travel the United States. But hey we have a 41 foot 5th wheel camper that we just bought might could whip up a turkey dressing and pumpkin pie. HaHa. Thanks for the transfer hopefully I can find some things.

Have a Happy Thanksgiving and Merry Christmas
