What a great site. I found it a few years ago while researchig family and decided to add local graves. Most entries are for Illinois cemeteries; mainly Bluff City in Elgin, but other cemeteries, too.

If I have added a duplicate memorial, please let me know.

Most entries for deaths prior to 1995 are from grave photos. I am working to get all the photos uploaded, but this is a slow process. If there is not a photo on the memorial you are interested in, just ask (via edit/suggest a correction) and if I have a photo of that grave I will expedite the upload. Many memorials from 1995 and later are obituary based and there is a higher chance that I do not have a photo. A warning: my photography leaves something to be desired at times; if you have a better photo, please add it.

I do not include obituaries (in rare circumstances, I make exceptions), but will add excerpts; I will not include names of living persons.

I am happy to add family link and extra information into memorials. I will generally attempt to confirm the information first, though.

If you would like a transfer, please request it through the Edit-Suggest a correction tab.

Most photos include a geotag in the metadata.
This information can be mapped by uploading the photo to Jeffery's EXIF viewer at:

Pictures may be copied for personal, non-commercial purposes (including adding to, if desired); a small credit would be appreciated (but not necessary).

Thank you so much for the photos. Can't believe you posted them so quickly. Working on the Schmuhl side of my family and am not yet sure if Rika & Carl are related. Thanks again. Karen

Hall graves
Thanks so much for also posting the Amos and Rose Hall pictures and their daughter Adelaide Dietz. And especially thanks for linking them! Was hoping to find that Adelaide was buried next to her parents since I knew the second wife was buried next to her husband. Adelaide died on the big flu epidemic.
