RE: Heegle
Everyone contributes differently to this website. We contribute by taking gravestone photos in the cemeteries. If someone does not have a stone or their name is not on the stone, we wouldn't know they are there.

We have 2 more sections to photograph in that cemetery, so we will be going back soon since the weather getting better.

Many of the stones in that cemetery are overgrown with sod. It takes a long time to photograph because we have to dig out the sod first so we can read them. A neighboring cemetery comes over to mow, but will not edge or trim the stones. Many are partially covered with sod. We suspect many stones are "missing" because they are completely buried under the sod.

If you know where someone is buried, you can add them to the cemetery. There are name and dates fields, so add as much as you know. You can add information later if you need to. Be sure to search for the name first so you don't duplicate the memorial. If someone takes a gravestone photo later, they can add it to your memorial. If you want to add information to anyone else's memorials, use the Edit tab at the top of the memorial.

If you have any questions, please ask. There are lots of nice people on this website that can help you. Also please read the FAQs on the main website page. It has lots of information on how to do things.
