My interest in findagrave started when I worked on a family tree for my husband. We found some of his relatives and where they are buried through this site. It was comforting to look at their headstones and imagine what life was like for them more than 200 years ago.
I would like to thank all the volunteers for their time and effort in photographing and documenting the grave sites. I was so impressed with their work that now I am a volunteer and I enjoy spending my free time at the cemeteries documenting headstones of which some, unfortunetly, will be totaly unreadable in a few years.
In photographing cemeteries I noticed some of the older, hard to read headstones have been scratched to try and make out a name or date. I DO NOT alter the headstones in any way, instead, I take several photos from different angels to try to read them.
If you find any mistakes, please contact me. I am not perfect and do make mistakes and when they are pointed out to me I gladly make the correction.

Any photo from a cemetery that I've posted at Find-A-Grave may be used for family trees, personal use, etc.

Twin Beech Cem.
Is this the same Cemetery that is part of the church "Twin Beech Church" formerly "Zion Chapel"? I am looking for the cemetery that is adjacent to Twin Beech Church. I have been told that they're two different cemeteries named Twin Beech.

Thank You
Thank you so much for your efforts. In a most ironic manner, your work in memorializing those who have passed have brought them to life and helped me understand how deep my families' roots run.

Thank you.
