Tombstone Tuesday... 500 Gravestone photos

When I went to Ohio last week, I visited some cemeteries where I knew my family members were buried. While at most cemeteries, I took additional pictures in hopes that they were needed on I've uploaded about 50 new photos to the website and added 14 names that were previously not in the database. That has been so exciting.

Uriah Lytle (1864 - 1951)
Green Lawn Cemetery, Columbus, Ohio
Section 75
I took this photo because a blogger I follow is search Lytle's. I don't know if this
person belongs in their family. However, it was fun to think he might be.

Thus far, I've not been able to fulfill a 'Photo Request' with the photos I've uploaded. However, I have an additional 500+ photos to add to the website. They might not all be needed, per se. But if I've made even half of those additional photos available for a researcher, then I know the extra time was well spent. In the process, I'll be able to post my family member's grave markers as well. Fabulous Stuff!!!

I can't thank Amy O'Neal at the Gravestoned blog enough for all of her valuable tips. I feel the trip was a success, even if I forgot to be careful about my reflection showing up in the highly reflective markers. However, all is not lost. I've been able to use a clone brush in Paint Shop Pro to take me out of most photos. Yeah!
