Bio Photo "When I go to a cemetery, I don't just see tombstones. I see families there. I see history there. I see much more than just a stone..."

I've been working on genealogy for about 10 years now. I stumbled upon this site and so impressed with the idea that I decided to volunteer and add graves as I ran across them. It saddens me to see the state of some of the graveyards I've visited, but I feel like I'm helping save part of history by photographing the stones that are still there. If I can be of any help just let me know.

"Genealogy is the art of collecting tidbits of the lives of those who came before us. And a genealogist sorts, organizes and nurtures this info for the purpose of paying it forward to a future generation's hands. The bucket is in our hands now, for a moment it's "ours", but the rest of the brigade is waiting for that pail of water to be passed to the next soul." Gerblady

if you would like a transfer of a memorial, please use the "edit" button on the memorial and state your relationship. I will gladly transfer memorials within 4 direct generations. Others I will be happy to consider. :-)

I sent you a message via Find A Grave. In regards to Myrta (Hilligoss) Matlock. If you are not related you can transfer to me. I am kin to her, her father was not Solomon & her mother not Mary. Her parents were Ira Wesley Hilligoss and Frances Naomi Hunt. Ira was my 2nd cousin 4x removed. If you go into census you will find Myrta listed as Myrtle in one census with her father & mother and you will find that Solomon & Mary did not have a child named Myrtle or Myrta.

Thank you

RE: Violet Perkins
I will have to do a little research and try to find a map of Sunset. There are no plot markers out there. I think I have it narrowed down, but not 100%. I will try again later.

RE: Violet Perkins
I just left the cemetery office for Elwood, they have records for Sunset. She is buried in Sunset, Section 2, Lot 54, Site 3. I will go out to Sunset once I finish up in the Elwood Cemetery andake sure I didn't walk over it, since I have a location.

Did you hear anything from the funeral home about a possible location?

Please remove your second photo of my dear aunt's grave. It isn't a contest to see who takes the best picture, and you are infringing on my memorial. I don't need two photos of her marker.
Thank you

RE: Glen Cove
Glen Cove I have mainly worked on those who are related to both the Craig and Dalrymples.

Wait until Spring or warm weather. The person in the office last year stated that everyone in the cemetery was up on their computer. IF that is true, then It is a matter of going into their office and copying what they have and taking photos of those that that headstones. I know that some do not longer have headstones and never did.

I do not know if they are by sections or names.....

Carolyn Craig

PS. I would be glad to take photos of headstone compared to the listing they might have. It would be a big undertaking. Probably better to do a section at a time. and upload them to FINDAGRAVE.
