A WORD ABOUT COPYRIGHT INFRINGEMENT:
Do not download any photograph of mine with the intention of uploading to ancestry.com or any other website. I have spent untold amounts of time and money contributing to this website because I believe that genealogy, burial records should be free. Ancestry's aquisition of this website should have elimated the need to "lift" photographs because they provide a link to the memorial in question, yet people continue violate this rule without thought. Any photograph taken after 1923 is subject to copyright laws governing their use. If you wish to use a photograph of mine, please ask first.
Please, if there is already a photograph on a memorial, respect the original photographer, volunteer and find a grave's allowance of five slots per unsponsored memorials, unless yours is signifigantly better!
A WORD ABOUT CEMETERIES IN MONTGOMERY:
Oakwood Cemetery in Montgomery, Alabama is the city cemetery. It is old and in Scott's Free Ground, which was parcel of land given by Andrew Dexter and John Scott, markers have succumbed to the march of time making them difficult to read.
Saint Margaret's is the Catholic Cemetery, Land of Peace and Eternal Rest are the Jewish Cemeteries and of course Oakwood Annex also known as Hank Williams Memorial Cemetery. While the Jewish and Catholic cemeteries are located in Oakwood and Oakwood Annex adjoins it, they are five legally separate cemeteries oftentimes lumped under Oakwood.
