RE: Question
Hi Stephanie,

To answer your question, the cemetery didn't give me a database, I doubt you could find one who would voluntarily. I found their database they posted in an access file on their website when I was doing research and it was awful to use, so I reformatted in order to add to find a grave since I figured it would be better accessible and searchable in a mass database. It continues to be a lot of work even a year later with all the corrections. If I had to do over I would have handled it differently.

I still add burials though by "mowing the rows" at local cemeteries or borrowing old cemetery transcription books for other states, I look to add pioneer burial info when I can since it predates most records. Depending on where you are sometimes just photographing and adding a row at a nearby cemetery can mean success for someone a thousand miles away. :-)

RE: Isabella Blair
Hi Stephanie, The headstone photo I posted on the memorial page was Isabel Blair 1860 - 1915. I noted the dates on the memorial page were not the same so I deleted the photo of the headstone. I checked the records and found that Isabella Blair and Isabel Blair are buried in the same location but there is no headstone for Isabella.

Hi Stephanie,

I'm not sure what you are requesting. I am a volunteer photographer for find-a-grave but serve no other function. Maybe you can find help in the FAQ's, or send an email directly to find-a-grave.
email: infofindagrave.com

I hope this helps,

Jim Walls
