Several months ago I made a photo request on findagrave. Saturday evening I received an email from the findagrave system notifying me that my photo request had been fulfilled! As a bonus, the headstone is lovely, legible, and contains information for two additional family members. Score!
Recently the findagrave mobile app was made available for free. I downloaded it to my iphone. It seems like taking a photo and uploading it to the site will be super easy now. I haven’t tried it yet. Having a kind stranger take a photo for me has inspired thoughts of doing that myself. I think it’s time. Maybe an evening walk with my family through the local cemetery is in order. Just think how many people we can make smile when they get a happy email from findagrave.
