|Bio and Links|
I have always been interested in genealogy for as long as I can remember. I was blessed to have grown up near my grandmother, who happened to remember a lot of family names and stories. :) I credit my passion (or obsession to some...ha ha) as coming from her. I also happen to have a fondness for old cemeteries.|
I have no problem transferring memorials to people who ask. I like to document whole cemeteries, giving me a lot of memorials that I have no relation to. So feel free to ask! :) On a side note, please do not email me asking for detailed info about cemeteries (like who is buried there, etc.). I do not have any specific information on a cemetery, other than what you see on this website. I find some on a map, and some are stumbled upon by just driving down the road.
I also do not mind if someone would like to copy my gravestone pictures for their family trees. It would be nice to receive a credit mention where ever you might post the pictures...but at the same time, it won't hurt my feelings if I don't. The pictures I take are for the "greater good" and I take them, hoping that someone out there will find them...maybe they might even help someone piece together part of their family tree that's been a mystery! :)
My family names: Carlisle, Rosan, Lively, Burton, Mathis, Ussery, Miles, Hicks, Lavender, Gustin, Trill, Offerman, Ritter, Wabbena, Sternberg, Tekstra, Doescher, Atkins/Adkins, Paton/Payton, Robinson, Bonham, Cleavenger, Barnett, Crawford, Fuller, Russell, Halfacre (just to name a few!)

No need to transfer; I know when I see your name on a memorial it's in good hands. :)
|Jackie Webb||RE: James Arnett|
Not a problem. Glad I had it to give. Always feel the little extra gives clarity.
|genielady2012||RE: Dean and Aikins|
You are welcome! :)

I certainly understand the challenges of reading old stones, and I wasn't trying to be critical in any way. Your time and efforts are certainly appreciated. It takes time to get a quality photo with good lighting without shadows, framing and all.
Last time, we took a plastic bag with an old soft toothbrush, paper towels and something to hold water. I can't stand to take a photo after birds have visited ! I learned that it takes awhile for the water to dry, as the stones are quite absorbent.
I read some excellent information on the Illinois Historic Preservation website about what can safely be used on stones for cleaning. Not much except dish soap, which would require rinsing.
