I grew up in Detroit, Michigan. I am now living in Bluffton, SC.|
I have been working on my husband's and my side of the family for 5 years on Ancestry. We have family from Italy, Ireland, Virginia, North Carolina, Michigan, Tennessee and Idaho. I wish I would have done this years ago.
I do live near Beaufort National Cemetery and would be happy to take photos of your loved ones buried there.

|Lee Shade||Highland Park Cemetery request|
Lee's steps for Highland Park Photo requests:
1. You find out where they are buried—this is very easily done by going to http://www.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~ohcdrt/clecems/00dexfind.html#hig You may find other helpful info there about your ancestor, as well.
2. Add this burial information to their memorial so it shows up on the photo request list.
3. Write, call or e-mail the cemetery office to confirm that a marker actually exists—about 60% of requests for this cemetery will have no marker. http://www.cleveland-oh.gov/CityofCleveland/Home/Government/CityAgencies/ParksRecreationandProperties/Cemeteries
4. Send me a message letting me know that this stone is now ready to be found and I will look for it, weather permitting. If you discover that there is no marker, please go to the request, choose "report problem" and from the drop down, "cemetery office confirms that no marker exists for this burial"
|Lee Shade||Highland Park photo request|
Hillary S informs me that you can actually look up the Highland Park burial records at http://www.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~ohcdrt/clecems/00dexfind.html#hig
I'm still asking people to call the cemetery office to confirm that there is actually a stone there, however. More than 60% of the requests I've checked out have not had stones, they will only look up a limited number for me at a time and the cemetery is enormous (over 130,000 burials) with a numbering system that at times defies logic.
|Lee Shade||your photo request|
I was at Highland Park Cemetery fulfilling photo requests today. It is a huge cemetery and there is no way anyone could find a tombstone without the Section and Lot or Tier number. I will, as I am able, look for the stones that have this information. There are 121 photo requests for this cemetery so I cannot request lookups for all of them. This is the link: http://www.cleveland-oh.gov/CityofCleveland/Home/Government/CityAgencies/ParksRecreationandProperties/Cemeteries
Please also ask them to check if there is actually a stone there

|Judith Crossley||RE: Carl Washington|
We had almost given up finding Mr. Washington as his stone was completely grown over. We were searching for #77 and finally found that marker, but nothing was revealed near it! We had brought a flag to place by his stone and used it to puncture the ground. We eventually found an obstacle under the grass and after much digging uncovered his headstone. So glad we presisted!
|Lori Anderson Mashburn||Belflower|
Thanks so much for the Belflower photo. It is greatly appreciated. Lori
|Waldarry||William Wood - Thank You|
Thank you ever so much for adding the photo to our ancestor William Wood in such a timely fashion. Distance made it very unlikely that we would have been able to do so ourselves.
