The Kopets Cope With Fame

Larry and Linda Kopet of Oconomowoc, Wisconsin, have taken photographs of 100,000 headstones in 903 cemeteries, and contributed them all to the Wisconsin GenWeb Archives. Now Larry can't show up at a cemetery without getting mobbed by autograph-seekers.

“Once, when my husband was out taking pictures, a little old man approached him and said ‘I know you! Wait until I get back into to town and tell people I met you!'” Linda said. “A lot of people come up to him.” [Link]
