To view the tombstone photo, simply click on the individual's name. You will be presented with a page like the one below, that contains all of the information the person who posted the photo shared.

This page contains a wealth of information about Christy DeSalvo — his birth date and location, death data and location, spouse's name, and the name and location of the cemetery where he's buried. And if you had determined that he was your ancestor, the author of the page has provided her name and a mailing address so you may contact her to discuss your mutual research interests. So the Virtual Cemetery not only makes the photos available, but makes it possible for you to collaborate with other researchers.
