Genealogical Photo Services
I will photograph gravestones within Wentworth County, Ontario and surrounding area and provide digital camera files, high quality digital scans from film, inkjet photos or conventional prints. Images may be E-mailed to you as an *.JPG file for viewing or printing on your colour printer. I will visit the cemetery, find the gravestone and photograph it as requested. All images are of sufficent resolution to allow you to read the inscription assuming it is still legible.
Example image of a "badly eroded white marble stone", and yes the stone is leaning!
