     I am available for hire to photograph tombstone in cemeteries in the Monroeville, Pitcairn, North Versailles, McKeesport and surrounding areas.  My fee is $25 for the first stone photographed, and $5 for each additional stone.  This includes driving to the cemetery, digitally photographing the stone, and emailing you the image.  The more information you are able to provide me about the request will result in faster response times.  I will also, at no additional cost, post the photos online at the Allegheny County PA GenWeb Archives Tombstone Photo Project.
