I'm in southeast Nebraska. If you need something checked-out here, pop me an email & I'll see if I can help you out.
Here are some things I've found useful to know, in no particular order:
I think there is a glitch in the software to upload photos, possibly in the phone app. For reasons I haven't yet determined, occasionally the photos end up rotated 90 degrees on here.
This site doesn't cope well with Czech diacritical marks. So, I've tried to avoid putting them in the searchable fields. I do try to show them either in the notes or the photo captions, however.
Lots of older stones in southeast Nebraska are in Czech or German. If I can give a reasonable translation, you might find it in italics or [brackets] or sometimes just along with the original in the photo caption.
Sometimes the last name on a woman's stone is not the last name she went by when she died.
If I have uploaded a photo of a grave of your relative, I won't wish to claim copyright against you. If you post an obit, of course I can't claim that somebody won't claim copyright against you. BUT it would be nice if you mentioned where that obit was published, in case somebody wants to go get a hard copy of it.
If you are in Nebraska (or anywhere in the United States, I think), the longitude of the grave has to be negative. Otherwise, when you click on it, it shows that the grave is somewhere in China. If you see one that I missed, please feel free to let me know or fix it for me.

Hi, thank you so much for taking the time to get a photo of this marker. It means a great deal to family members that do not live in this area.

Thank you so much! I never got to meet her, I was born 6 years after her death, but it's good to see my dad's cousin's stone!

Thank you for posting the nice photo of his gravestone. He and his wife Helen are relatives.
I do have a request and a suggestion: Could you please add the same photo to Keith's spouse's memorial page for me? I also have a photo request for her's, too. Thanks!
I note that the image you posted is a HUGE 9.15 MB file -- Find A Grave asks that all posted photos not exceed 8 MB, and they prefer that they are actually only 1 or 2 MB maximum. The problem with the huge file size is that it takes up to 6 to 10 minutes for the image to load when I click on Keith's memorial page. Like you, I take photos at a high resolution, but I reduce the pixal size when I post a photo on a memorial -- just a suggestion!
Thanks again for your volunteer work.
I tried cropping my photos, even by a little and the 90 angle problem resolved itself for some photos.
Using the online app for Find A Grave was the most successful.
If using your phone for photos and posting, look in the App Store under "Updates".

It was my pleasure to photograph the Burden sisters. I am thankful that you took the time to make the request and to post family information. Henry Burden's obituary was heartwarming and made me wish that I could have met him! The love and commitment it took to raise eight young children, his recounting of the civil war...PRICELESS!!!
I'll bet the your grandfather had wonderful stories of his own life and that of his neighbor.

BTW, Did you notice the DOD of 1969 written on her marker?

You are very welcome.

I have fulfilled your request. Martha's sister, Mary Burden-Davis is resting footsteps away. I have attached her photo to her page. Find A Grave is experiencing problems resulting in photos being turned in a 90 degree angle. Once corrected, I will attach a photo of Serenity Garden.

Hello Linda, William has one of the most interesting markers I have seen in Wyuka. Did a little research on him, and he was a monument setter for years in Lincoln, he probably set a lot of the stones in Wyuka. As you can see, he has his wife's name at the bottom. Checked into it, and she is there along with his father and second wife, all misspelled, of course. I submitted edits which should show tomorrow. His marker looks to be a piece of scrap granite that had a column piece sawn out of the center. My guess is he got the piece where he worked and polished a side and put his name and birth date on it and his wife's name after she passed in 1913. I would love to see if dates are on there also. In the censuses, he and Julia are classified Mulatto in some and Negro in others. I would bet their life stories are very interesting, and I would love to know more about his father, Granvill, who was born in 1831. I thoroughly enjoyed looking into William. I am going to check out the space again and take a wider picture to show where everyone lies in relation to the marker. Thank you for the research project, loved it. Kevin.
