My family roots are pretty deep in southern Illinois, Tennessee, and Kentucky by way of Virginia and North Carolina. Three of my grandparents' extended families followed the same paths of migration to settle in Jackson, Johnson and Williamson counties in southern Illinois. They came mostly from the counties of Smith, Wilson, and Overton in Tennessee. In creating burial records I hope to honor the memory of each individual and their beliefs and customs.
Note to researchers: Genealogy research is somewhat like bringing a camera into focus to take a family portrait. I strongly recommend that if you are doing your family research to double check information you might find on the records I have made. I have found a number of errors in the edits I receive and also on the public family trees at Ancestry.com, as well as my own transcription errors.
