Cemetery Photos Web Page  Volunteers around the world are listed who are willing to take photos of headstones, grave sites, etc. in their neighborhood.  Sign up to volunteer to take photos or submit your request for photos at this site.

    If you need a photo of a gravesite in Umatilla County, Union County, Grant County or other Eastern Oregon Counties, please contact the Umatilla County Coordinator.   I am listed on the Cemetery Photos Web Site as a volunteer.  I am willing to take photos. All we ask is a roll of film to be sent or replace the roll of film that we shoot. We don't charge for this. You are responsible for developing, etc.  I have a digital camera and use that and my 35mm camera. That way I can post photos to the website for you to view and also determine whether the regular photos will be okay before I send the roll of film to you.  Also am willing to take photos of the general area on the same roll.  Please note: I can normally do Umatilla County within a short time. Union County is not too hard to get to, but other counties mean driving some distance.   Info needed: Name of person and related information, Cemetery, location of grave site.
