Find a Grave ID


I am retired and when not busy with family and church matters I spend my time on family history and genealogy.
I try to visit old graveyards before others who tend to focus only on their own family or short change the survey due to the effort required.
This has been a favorite past time since 2001, before Findagrave or ancestry.com blossomed

I am closely related to but a few folks I add listings and photos for.
Obviously I don't know your family history so if you want it added send it in or request a transfer.
I have and support hundreds of thousands of listings and photos on my site and here.
I welcome anyone needing help on this or any other site I support including these two:

Southern Middle Tennessee:

My emphasis is cemetery location, or getting the grave listing into the correct cemetery. Please don't guess at it. I see so many errors on this site regarding that. If you are having problems with location feel free to ask me; I know about where every graveyard is located; and the proper cemetery name in northern Alabama and southern middle Tennessee. In other words I have digital cemetery books on the following counties and use these as my references:
Maury Co. Tennessee - Giles Co. Tennessee -Lincoln County Tennessee - Marshall Co. Tennessee - Bedford Co. Tennessee - Lawrence Co. Tennessee Madison Co. Alabama Vol 1 & 11 - Limestone Co. Alabama - Bits and pieces on Lawrence Co. Al Colbert Co. Alabama and Lauderdale County Al.
