Bio and Links
Bio Photo I started going to cemeteries in geneology searches. As I went thru the cemeteries I realized how much the stones wear down (and all the other factors - cemeteries not being kept up, vandalism, etc) and that someday you wouldn't be able to read those stones.

I also realized what great things people were doing by taking pics, and volunteering to take pics, for people who were looking for their family and couldn't get to the area.

So...I starting taking pictures myself. Now that we have digital cameras all it costs me is my time. And the results are great...people find family they're looking for and most importantly, those that were buried in the cemetery and the stones were put up for are not forgotten.

May I please use the photo you took of the grave of Robert Hudson and Betty Hudson? I am about to create the memorial for Betty Hudson and would like to include their joint marker photo. His Memorial number is 38139332.
Thank you.

Thank you so very very much for taking the photo; however, I can't see it, unfortunately. There is nothing visible along the edges, and zooming in distorts it further. Very little of the wording can be read. I tried to photoshop it, but even that did not work well.

I suppose you have gone to a lot of trouble and live some distance to ask you to re-photograph it again? If you ever have another chance, maybe photograph both the top and bottom of the tombstone. I know the lighting is also sometimes an issue; picking the right time of day doesn't always conform to your own visiting time.

I feel badly that you have gone to this trouble, but I am very appreciative of the effort. Many thanks from Minnesota.

Re: Alexander Lansing
Thanks for the obituary and taking a closer look at the dates. I think you're right, so I changed it. Kim

He was on East Homer's list of burials, and his parents, but not his wife. Maybe moved? Anyway, I deleted the memorial, helps to avoid confusion, Thanks again, Larry
