I am a native of Utah and have been doing research for almost 25 years. I have a lot of resources at my fingertips. I also have access to lots of Utah records and know where you can get specific documents to help find your ancestors. Especially of interest, very early Ogden City Cemetery burial records.
I am extremely passionate about taking headstone photos in old cemeteries simply because the cemetery markers and tombstones are being disintegrated and destroyed by many elements. These markers and tombstones might be some of the oldest in Utah. The biggest threat the headstones face today are vandals. The other obvious threats are weather and time. Now is the time to photograph them while they are still intact. I encourage whomever would like to photograph and care for tombstones to do it now so that further generations will have a chance to view these headstones, if no way else than by photograph.
I welcome any questions you might have. Don't hesitate to contact me if you need me to help you. I have decided since I am asked so much to do genealogy research and information about obituaries, etc. that I must charge a nominal fee because it cost me gas and time. Obituary requests for Weber County is 1.00 for one or 5 for $4.00.
I am contemplating covering several other counties in genealogical research. Just ask me I might know how to help you get pointed in the right direction.
If you have any questions or requests please email me Utahtombstonelady@hotmail.com.
