◊Find A Grave's primary purpose is a grave registration website. I believe the more information, pictures, etc., makes it much more interesting and a true tribute to the person. Please help by adding a picture if you have one or sending what information you have to share.
I am working with local research materials, newspapers, documents and the historical society to develope these memorials.
Try using the "VIRTUAL CEMETERY" instead of memorial transfers. It was created for that purpose.
Transfers will be considered for direct relatives if within the four generation guideline. A direct relative within four generations is (siblings, parents, grandparents, and great-grandparents.)
For EXTENDED FAMILY MEMBERS, (aunts, uncles, cousins) I will gladly make additions, corrections or links.
PLEASE USE the "EDIT" TAB on the upper right side of the memorial to send request for "TRANSFERS" or information to be added and please send the memorial numbers for links.
This ensures I transfer or make additions to the right memorial. No transfers will be made from posting to my contribor page.
Effective Immediately: I will not be able to add parent or spouse links, UNLESS BOTH NAME & NUMBER IS PROVIDED. It is a safety precaution to prevent incorrect links.
MY HEARTFELT THANKS TO:
BEANIE & JUNE who helped with the research and the thousands of hours we all have spent looking and developing this site not only for us but for others. Their input for the Auburn cememteries has been transferred for me to maintain. Records will continue to be added. Any information, links, pictures, etc. are very welcome for all to share.
You were very helpful and kind to me with my research. Auburn Public Library. RETIRED 2012
Other contributor's whoever they may be for sending a correction or extra information to help make these the best they can be.
EVERYONE HAS THEIR OWN REASONS AND WAYS OF HANDLING THEIR CONTRIBUTIONS. PLEASE SHOW RESPECT IN DEALING WITH THEM.
THE RECORDING OF A CEMETERY
BY THELMA GREENE REAGAN
Today we walked where others walked
On a lonely, windswept hill;
Today we talked where other cried
For Loved Ones whose lives are stilled.
Today our hearts were touched
By graves of tiny babies;
Snatched from the arms of loving kin,
In the heartbreak of the ages.
Today we saw where the grandparents lay
In the last sleep of their time;
Lying under the trees and clouds -
Their beds kissed by the sun and wind.
Today we wondered about an unmarked spot;
Who lies beneath this hollowed ground?
Was it a babe, child, young or old?
No indication could be found.
Today we saw where Mom and Dad lay.
We had been here once before
On a day we'd all like to forget,
But will remember forever more.
Today we recorded for kith and kin
The graves of ancestors past;
To be preserved for generations hence,
A record we hope will last.
Cherish it, my friend; preserve it, my friend,
For stones sometimes crumble to dust
And generations of folks yet to come
Will be grateful for your trust.
"Show me your cemeteries, and I will tell you what kind of people you have."
Benjamin Franklin (1706-1790)

Hi... yes, I too have read about chalk... but you know, those stones have been standing for 100+ years sometimes, enduring all kinds of wear; so I figure a little chalk residue wiped off after won't add too much... the stones are usually in much better, cleaner shape after we've visited them too! Have a great weekend too

What beautiful photos! Thank you so much for your extra effort... I've never used foil to pop out the inscription... used water & chalk. I will have to try that. Again, my appreciation for you volunteering! Folks like you are what makes this site so special.

No problem at all. If you have any other clues as to where I might be able to find it, I'm happy to try again for you!

Can you combine Findagrave memorials 76168917 and 76608211? They are for the same person, Antonio Amadio. Thanks.

I discovered a possible relative's grave on Findagrave.com (Antonio Amadio, b. 1901, died 1901). There's a burial note on his Findagrave memorial: Plot 822 - unmarked grave. If there are no records of who is buried in this cemetery, and the grave is unmarked, how is it known where Antonio is buried? The baby lived only one day. I wonder if a birth or death certificate is available. Sorry for all the questions!
