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!
