I live in New Jersey and feel great comfort walking around a cemetery. What does that say about people like us? Anyway, I take a lot of photographs of artistic headstones and sort of have a collection going. I also enjoy taking photos for others so don't be afraid to ask. For this whole site to work we all need to lean on each other a bit.|
I have recently entered into the realm of genealogy and find it exciting. Before my grandfather died in 2002, he collected a lot of information but me being in my teens and early twenties at the time, I didn't care very much. I'm glad he saved it all. I do my best to keep it all going.
Thanks for reading!

|Leslie ||nov 6 seminar|
My husband, Bob, and I recently gave a presentation at the Hunterdon County Library about the cemeteries of the county for the Tricentennial. Included in this event is a county-wide “scavenger hunt” where participants will return on Nov 6 and collect prizes for their participation at the Main Branch Library. We wanted to make that return lecture an informal meet and greet where anyone interested in getting involved, whether it be in cemetery restoration, work at the Historical Society with cemetery records, working in support of specific cemeteries, or with findagrave. Whatever it may be, and offering a way for like minded cemetery folks to network, share resources, advice, and the like. I am extending an invitation, hoping you are available and would like to come out and share you own expertise with the group. It’s, November 6, 7-9 PM at the Hunterdon County Main Branch Library. If you can make it let me know, thanks.

Sorry don't know why I said Hi Maureen..
|Patricia Corbett||Santo DePompo|
I was wondering if your related to Santo DePompo and if he was with the 328th infantry div. Battery A. My dad was in this unit and we were looking at the large photo taken at Fort Dix before active duty ( Africa than on to Italy and France.) He had a Santo T DePompo in his battery. I would be happy to sent the large group photo on to you.
Sincerely, Patricia Corbett
Hi Matt, thanks for taking the photo of Ephraim Samuelson's headstone (Glendale Cemetery, IA); however I can't make out the inscription. Can you help? Thanks, BarbP

Thanks for your work on Find-A-Grave.
As side note too, I don't live in New Providence, my great-great grandparents did and are buried there. I live in Hunterdon County but try to get to the New Providence area to do research. Maybe you can help me with something someday since you are in the immediate area.

I added another picture that I had for your William H. Wilson memorial. I believe it to be the original and it has the dates on it. Could you please add them to the memorial? I send Mary W. an email to let her know the picture was there.
P.S. Sorry about the previous message post, it sent before I got to finish it. Dang computers. lol

Thanks for your visit. You have taken some picture of beautiful monuments. You will find a lot of beautiful and unusual monuments on this web site. I think Find A Grave even has a category of them.

Thanks for the gravestone picture for William & Mary (Conover) Alpaugh - they are some old, old

I'm so happy you got interested in genealogy instead of waiting until you are much older like myself and then I have nobody to ask - older relatives that had the info died.
Actually David & Ellen Everitt had 2 small children that died: Sarah Emily Everitt, born
11 Mar 1851 - died 25 Mar 1853 and Susan C. Everitt, 6 Sep 1849-18 Jun 1856.
Thanks for your help! I'll look forward to the rest of the pics - no rush!
