I am also doing memorials for my wife's family, Ackley, Priboth, Herbert & Jones. Please see the Ackley Virtual Cemetery for names.

Am also making a virtual cemetery for all veterans in Maple Grove. Please let me know if I miss someone who is in the Find A Grave list.

Recently visited Eville and photographed St. John's and Sweitzers (UB) cemeteries n Berrysburg and Salem Lutheran in Killinger. Took about 1500 photos. Updating their FAG memorials. Adding memorials and making suggested corrections. Using death certificates to address corrections.
Making print and digital copies of death, and some birth, certificates. When task completed will send to EAHS for their use..

I've added photos to some memorials that are core clear than what is on the memorial. I may even go back over some of my old memorial photos and update. FAG has vastly improved the size and quality of photos posted. I remember when I had to diownsize photos to get them to post.And it took FOREVER!!!.

Be sure to visit Elizabethville Area Historical Society. I have printed copies of some local death certificates there as well as digital photos from the many local memorials that I posted to Find A Grave. Also some military records of local veterans thru WW II.
