Cemeteries tell a fascinating story about a community and can be a wonderful source of information for family history work. I discovered Find-a-Grave looking for more information about the burial locations of my husband's great grandparents.

Because I so appreciated others documenting the burial information and posting photos of family burial sites I do not have easy access to, I have started taking photos at cemeteries in my current area and posting them in hopes that I can help someone else progress in their family history work and help preserve the burial records.

Thanks to someone else's work posting information to Find-A-Grave, I discovered a great aunt, who died as a toddler, who we had known nothing about but whose tombstone clearly identified her and her parents (my great grandmother and grandfather.)

I enjoy working on family history and photography, so the two come together in this project. Some cemetery records are well kept, others not. As the tombstones deteriorate, are damaged or are covered over, that history can be lost, so when I go out on a request for a photo, I try and take a few pictures of surrounding graves and create memorials for them, if there isn't already one posted to help further the preservation of the information.

You are welcome to use the photos I take of your relatives headstones in your family history records. I take these photos as a service. If you wouldn't mind sending me a message that you are using the photos, I would appreciate knowing. If I have created a memorial for a member of your family, I am happy to transfer management of that memorial to you or another family member.

Thank-you for your time and the family plot. Being that Anna practice JW, there most likely isn't a maker.

Hi Lynne,

Welcome to Find A Grave! I've transferred your brother's and stepfather's memorials to you. No, we're not related. I've had a large number of memorials in Provo City Cemetery transferred to me to research after headstone is added. Find A Grave has also entrusted me with memorials from inactive members, so I have lots of memorials of those I'm not related to. Nice to hear from you and fun to see people from Timpview & Provo High on Find A Grave. Hope you enjoy it as much as I have.

Annie :)

P.S. It's fun to see Lynne spelled with an 'E,' hardly ever see middle name!

Thank you for trying to fulfill my photo request! I appreciate your efforts and also for sending the Deacon's name and number. I will contact him to see if they can do a thorough search of church and cemetery records. Thanks again!
