|Bio and Links|
I am an avid genealogist, with 40+ years of experience in genealogy and family history. As the descendant of pioneer Chinese immigrants to this country, I have a special interest in Chinese genealogy. I have studied Chinese history, religion, and language and have a familiarity with Chinese cemeteries, headstones, and burial rites. Feel free to contact me if I may be of assistance with the translation of headstone inscriptions or other related matters.|
A TIP FOR THE CLEANING OF WATER-STAINED GRAVE MARKERS:
After much research and experimentation, I discovered that there is really only one way to remove very stubborn water stains that can mar the appearance of flat grave markers in particular. These stubborn and unsightly water stains can be removed with a razor blade inserted into a hand-held metal scraper. Removing the water stains is not easy; it requires time and patience, as well as some physical exertion while on one's hands and knees (I recommend the use of something soft to place on the ground while working, gloves, and something to shield you from the sun). But this method really works. Once the stain is gone, you can use products to polish and maintain the sheen of the stone. For before-and after photos, see this memorial for my granduncle: 95425053 (Benjamin Ng Kim).

Thank you Gregory for your tranlations of headstones at Chiltern and Wangaratta cemeteries. It means a lot to me to give names to the people buried there.
