John C. Anderson (430,338 Memorials)
My interest of documenting cemeteries began with a request to help on an Eagle Scout project in 2001.

Since I love creating and working with databases, digital photography and genealogy, what better combination!

I've documented many Howard Co. Indiana and Montclam Co. Michigan cemeteries with thousands of tombstone photos. My largest co... (read more)
 
Sally - Midcoast Maine (161,264 Memorials)
Thanks to everyone who sends edits and posts photo's. I think it is great seeing the missing info getting filled in.

Feel free to use my photos, they are there for everyone to use.

JOHN SVADBIK (2,959,506 Memorials)
Super Squirrel. Our family tree is full of nuts.

I enjoy researching especially online the parish records of Czech Republic and Austria. The records are usually in Latin, German Gothic or Czech, which I speak none of. The German Gothic is crazy hard to read the characters. I live in Miami, Florida. As more Cemetery records go online this helps to... (read more)

If you have found a family member Memorial on Find A Grave then you are the recipient of some kindness and effort on the part of a volunteer. Someone once said that creating Memorials on FAG is like the proverbial Message-in-a-bottle— being cast out onto the sea of the internet, waiting to be found and linked back to a family. I enjoy creating those M... (read more)

I'm caught up on auto-edits to 7/31 and email edits to about 7/31.

FYI - I bypass email change requests that point out a problem without a solution (such as stating I have an incorrect date without providing a correct date - requiring me to research). I'll get to them eventually but I process the change requests where the submitter has already d... (read more)
