|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: http://regex.info/exif.cgi
Pictures may be copied for personal, non-commercial purposes (including adding to Ancestry.com, if desired); a small credit would be appreciated (but not necessary).

|CrystalBranches||RE: Sherwood photos|
No worries! It was just our timing is all! I took pictures of the Sherwoods around that area in case they were not entered. I see you have entered them since I was there. Would you like for me to post the pictures I took of them? I can send you a list of the ones I post if that helps.

Bob, thanks so much for making the edits for my husband's grandmother and her family in Bluff City Cemetery. I appreciate all that you do! --Ruthie
|Don Peck||RE: George Vail and Mary Alice Peck|
Thanks for the information.

I had claimed a couple of photos for Bluff City with the last name of Sherwood. Because I claimed them on August 19th, I still fulfilled the request today with the photos I took. I see you posted your pictures on August 26th after I claimed the requests so perhaps you missed those request/claims. As the creator of the memorial you can decide what to do with the pictures I posted. I'm just clarifying that I did claim the photos prior to your posting and fulfilled the request today within the findagrave.com time limit. Also, I took high quality pictures as you can see.
Thank you so much for the photos of Minnie & William Schmuhl and Carolina Strubing. I greatly appreciate it. Karen

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

That is so incredible that the headstone still exists! Thanks just doesn't seem enough to show how grateful I am for posting this photo of my great great grandmother's headstone. Please consider transferring management to me for Hamilton, Betsey Bryant Joles and Betsey Joles. Thank you so much!
