Here are some FRP's that we would like to have photographed.

We want a close-up photo of the headstone, marker or grave if there is no marker. It would be great if you got some shots of the surrounding area and the entrance to the cemetery.

This list is just a start. There are a lot more missing DBGs out there. If you know of one in your area, grab a camera, go find them and send us some pix!
