Because of fires, floods and loss, I started photographing all the markers in Jackson Co Michigan in Nov 2006. We've discovered the 1927 DAR WPA cemetery transcription project didn't have anyone actually walk any of the county cemeteries. They obtained the information from cemetery records, church records and neighbors. Fortunately for all of us this included records of those graves with no markers. Most of the early cemetery records have perished along with some of the cemeteries. Hopefully, we will be able to provide info for descendants of the early/current residents of Jackson County Michigan. By using census, marriage, death and local history information we try to make our entries as complete as possible. Email with info on your ancestors and we'll add them to any of our records. We'll be happy to help you in your search.
Currently, I'm working on adding maiden names to as many memorials as possible.
As of 22 Aug 2009 Jackson Co FAG volunteers have 66,501 burials recorded, by Jan 2010 72,323 burials and by Jan 2013 101,483 burials. Many of the cemeteries have been completed with pics.
Please request edits, corrections & transfers thru the SAC tab (edit tab on the memorial page) and not here on the home page. Remember to check the new "edit" tab on your own homepage to see the corrections/additions sent to you.
Thanks to all those FAGer's who have trusted me to take care of their memorials and have transferred their memorials over to me while they take a leave from findagrave.
Not sure why my email disappeared from the contact info: firstname.lastname@example.org
A Heartfelt Thanks Deb, thank you so very much for transferring all the memorial you created of my family members. Your kindness will always be so appreciated. Do go back and visit and note the care taken, for each, do add your input if you wish May God Continue to Bless You to continue doing what you so enjoy. 2america # 47887115
Might you be related?? If not would you be willing to transfer. She is my great aunt. Also...Josiah's middle initial is T. (some have said for "Troop", but being as his grandfather was "Thomas Parker" (who was a DAR Patriot Ancestor and the Great Grandfather "George" is also) it is probably Thomas.
Josiah's Mem # is 66602285 Roxania's is 66602302
Again as Thank You.
From one F.A.G. Contributor to another....Good Job!!!
