All the antique photographs and postcards have been moved to the
post mortem photography album galleries.
They can be viewed in 2 main categories, one for the post mortems
and one for all other old pictures.
The antique photos and postcards can still be viewed without registration
but for comments and other extra's you need to register to have acces to all
including the post mortem galleries.
We hope it's less confusing now with one registration for all galleries.

First of all I want to thank all the members who contribute
 and share their interest on this homepage.
It's my passion to work on this homepage for many years now.
With all the help, contributions, compliments,
thanks and feedback from the members,
it makes me feel it's being appreciated and I'm thankfull for that.
What more motivation do you need :)

The Post Mortem photography albums are updated on regular basis.
More and more members contribute their own pictures in
the 'Member Upload' and we now have a total of more then 6000 images
in all categories.
Members have posted 8500 comments.
Recently there's a new unique layout created from the default template
 that comes with the script.
( default template link)

On the forum you can find many more pictures, info, and member contributions. Sadly because of the many spammers registrations
it's hard to tell if you have registered as a new member or as a spammer,
they are very creative withnames.
However, I'll be happy to create an account for you,
just send me a mail with the name and email adress you wantto use.
You will receive a password which can be changed after your log-in
to the forum in your control panel.

A new shout/comment box.

I realy liked the other one but it turned out to be
very vulnerable and an open door for hackers.
Sadly that script is no longer supported by the developers.
Your comments are very appreciated and precious to me
so I created a list of all comments/shouts already left.
