Subject: cleaning and photographing gravestones
Hello Mr. Selbrede. My name is Jarrod Roll. I live in Onalaska and offer a gravestone cleaning and photography service for people who live out of our area or for anyone who would rather hire someone to scrub their ancestor's gravestone than do it themselves. I am writing you because you have done so much wonderful work organizing and collecting info on La Crosse Co. cemeteries. Thank you for making this info so accessible on your website. My full time job is in historic preservation and public history. This gravestone cleaning job is a side job that answers the need of many folks who live out of our area but wish to have their family member's gravestone preserved and/or photographed. I am a professionally trained curator and use only methods that are safe for the gravestones. I would certainly appreciate if you referred anyone to me who inquires about gravestone cleaning/photography services. Please contact me if you would like more information about the services I provide. Marcia Ann Keil (MAK), the coordinator of the Monroe Co. rootsweb page has posted a blurb that describes my services. She agrees that there are many genealogists that would appreciate this cleaning service. Please check out the page by clicking here to learn more about me. You have done such a great job providing La Crosse Co. cemetery info for the public. Feel free to create a similar page to the one posted above off your cemetery webpage by copying and pasting the text from the site, or just link to it. Thank you for your time and for volunteering your efforts in keeping the La Crosse Co. cemetery pages going! Sincerely, Jarrod Roll "Save Your Stones": Gravestone Beautification and Preservation Services 608-317-7562 [firstname.lastname@example.org]
And, here is another source for cleaning, repairing, resetting and photography services, if you live within 100 miles of Viroqua, WI. Give him a call.
