I spend a lot of time in cemeteries, photographing, verifying and cleaning up gravesites, for the Historical Society, myself and Find-a-grave. It can be a lot of work, but the pleasure and satisfaction I receive is worth it all. I have many more pictures of headstones to be added to this site, as time allows, in cemeteries from the West coast to the East coast.|
I will be glad to look for your ancestor's grave in Lancaster County, PA, if you have basic information to help me with your search.
I will, also be glad to trasfer your ancestors grave to you, IF IT FALLS WITHIN FIND-A-GRAVES GUIDELINES AND IS NOT IN MY OWN FAMILY LINE. If you have something you would like added to somebody's listing that I have in Find-a-grave, please contact me and I will be more than happy to add it for you. I will be more than happy to link them to children, parents and spouses. I will add obituaries, but please do not ask me to add unverified biographies, and information that is only of interest to you. (trips you shared, hobbies of deceased, how they were sweet to you at Christmas, where they lived in the 1930 census, etc.) After all, this is not a genealogy site, but is a tool that can help Cemetery Historians as well as family historians and genealogists, alike.
I have received quite a few requests to transfer listings and thought this might be a good time to change my profile information to reflect my personal policy.
Enjoy my blog on graveyards, I've listed the URL below!

Linda, I am transferring one of the William Buckius Gable listings back to you. I would greatly appreciate it if you would please delete it upon receipt in order to complete the merger of the two listings. Thank you for your help!

The office, last time I visited 6 years ago, will give you a very vague map of the cemetery and a vague mark where your gravesite may be. However, since I was "elderly" and needed them to take me to the spot (which they were kind enough to do) I notice the driver printed out a very detailed site map with the grave site very clearly marked (each gravesite was marked) I was able to get him to give me this map - it was only of the small section I was going to visit but it was very detailed - perhaps you can do the same.

The cem is divided into two sections. One is on the side where the office is located. The other section is directly across the street (Metropolitan Avenue)
Map 4 is on the side where the main office is located (across from Christ the King High School and the row of stores)
The office has maps of both sections which would make your search easier. However, you can only get them when the office is open. It is closed on Sunday. My advice is to write to the cem and ask them for the maps of the cemetery. I believe they are both on the same sheet of paper. Enclose a stamped self addressed envelope.
If you go when the office is open you can obtain a numbered grave map for your section. This would make locating the grave easier. Not all graves have numbers written on them and some stones are missing so this map would be an asset.
