I discovered Find A Grave while searching for the grave of my grandfather's brother. This simple little search sent me on a mission to search for my ancestors and get some of my family history on Find A Grave. Once I got hooked on genealogy, I decided I could help others by adding names to the site so that sent me onto my new "hobby" - photographing graves, and now I am totally addicted. I hope my work on Find A Grave will help others in their search or allow them to "visit" a loved one's grave. |
I'm not one of those people who think they give a prize for managing the most memorials. If you have any connection to someone that I have created a memorial for, I will gladly transfer it, as long as they are not in my tree.
The Bismarck Tribune did a very nice article on my cemetery project a while back. Click Here to view the article.
In April 2016 they did another article. Click Here to view the article.
I have set up a Tribalpages family tree. Click on the link below to view it.
If I have taken a photograph of your ancestor's tombstone and it is of poor quality (shadows/overgrown with grass/hard to read/etc), please let me know and I will see what I can do about taking a better one. It is hard to take good photographs of all the markers when I am at a cemetery as the angle of the sun is often poor the stones don't photograph well.
If I have helped you in your search, please return the favor and "pay it forward" and do your part to help out someone else.

Thank you Brian for transferring the memorials to me.
|Jo Berta Flickinger||John H. Bailey headstone|
Thank you for making photos of my cousin John H. Bailey and his wife headstone. When I save and then try to insert them in a book I am writing, they are stretched way out. Can't make out name on either marker. His WWII or the other. What can be done about that?
|Gwen Doreen Kubberness||59779253|

|Jerry Reiswig-82nd Airborne||Mandan Union Cemetery|
Thanks for the Grave Marker photo for Herbert Engel.
|Evie (Greer) Schipper||Thank you.|
Thank you very much for the photo for Karrie Delker's memorial. I really appreciate it.
|John Webber||Harry George Webber's marker|
I wanted to thank you very much for the wonderful picture you left for my great-uncle.
I did not know anything about him until the past few years. This experience in my family is a pinnacle moment for some of the bitterness that my grandfather and his brothers felt towards life. The location was unknown until just a few weeks ago by our family. So I found the place of burial and you have provided a wonderful picture of burial location.
thank you very much.
|Bruce and Wendy Linz||Joe Koppy|
Thank you for fulfilling my photo request so quickly. I appreciate all your time and efforts.
