|I have been doing genealogy research since the late 1970s. I love discovering new things about not only my own ancestors, but of the other people who lived near them. One of my current projects is researching the genealogy of a small town in Iowa for their 150 year anniversary in 2018.|
I have a deep respect for those who came before us. So many of the old cemeteries and headstones have deteriorated or been destroyed. My husband and I have decided to contribute to the effort to preserve the information on headstones. Each weekend (weather permitting), we choose a cemetery and spend hours photographing headstones. We hope to get permission to do some headstone cleaning in a few of the older cemeteries in our area. We are also trying to locate the owners of private property with old family cemeteries to get permission to clean and photograph the graves.
I would love to make contact with other contributors in the Blount County, Tennessee area and perhaps work together on cemetery preservation and photography.
