I'm a 30-year-old archaeologist. I've been researching my family history for years, probably since middle school, but a lot of my family lived in the Midwest, so I've never been able to visit their graves.
I've been working on photographing and entering all the headstones from Weston Cemetery in Weston, Oregon. Even for a small cemetery, it's quite the process.
Please use the edit tab to submit corrections regarding any of my entries.
Please note that I am not an employee of any cemetery. I am a volunteer attempting to photo document an entire cemetery. Maintenance of headstones beyond the clearing away of grass and debris is beyond the scope of my efforts. If you have a problem with cemetery maintenance, please contact the cemetery sexton.
As per the Find A Grave FAQ, "Transfer requests should be for direct relatives within four generations, this would be your siblings, parents, grandparents, and great-grandparents. Keep in mind that the original contributor may also be related to the memorial and may not want to make the transfer. You may certainly request the transfer of memorials beyond the four generations, but the original contributor may choose not to transfer (the original contributor should make any corrections and add any additional information you have for that memorial, such as links to parents and spouses). Bulk surname requests should not be made."
