sorry, i was wrong that spreadsheet on find a grave is just a place you can add multiple names for the same cemetery, minimum of 25. the google site i was thinking of is called there's one called namesinstones too. you're thinking of actually plotting out the diagram of the cemetery, correct?

I believe that you can add a spreadsheet on find a grave on the page that has the picture of the cemetery when you look up a particular cemetery. I think it is in the upper right hand corner. I imagine it would load a lot like a picture, scan it in and it would attach right to the cemetery's front page. Also, google has a cemetery launch site that has been up for awhile but not active,can't think of the exact name of it right now. I think that the latest activity I saw on it was like 2008 so I don't think that would serve your needs. If findagrave has the capability, and I think it does, that's where I would place it because it's actually a pretty popular site and growing.

yes, I went out there to fulfill a request when I was that direction and went a little crazy, I took pictures of almost all of the stones. It was right after the blow down so I think I missed a few with trees covering them. And a couple of my pictures were less than what I would have liked so I have 11 left to get, going back as soon as I can. I have other requests out that way to get, so when I can take a day again for a road trip and walk I'll get them. It's been fun, and I get my exercise in at the same time. I think that doing a spreadsheet is a great idea, been thinking of that myself but wow, some cemeteries are so large and I'm not sure how they figure out how to lay them out. I've been looking at some and not sure how many feet they allow per gravesite and how they label them, it seems to be different in each cemetery. I don't know if there are any standards out there that might help you. I started this by trying to find my own family, it's helped me by helping others. Welcome to findagrave group!
