I've been looking at cemeteries where ever my wife and I visit. I'm a little surprised and unhappy as to the condition of some of these cemeteries. I thought I'd get involved with Find A Grave and perhaps make a difference. I'm currently running a small video on Youtube about protecting a cemetery. At the same time help others who are looking for loved ones. We took pictures of headstones on our last vacation and already assisted several people on Ancestry.com to provide them with information and photos of their family.
We are very much interested in our military people, especially our Civil War Veterans, Masons and I.O.O.F during that same time period. Retiring soon and moving to Windsor. We will be exploring the possibilities of restoring old and abandon cemeteries in the central Missouri area, Johnson, Pettis, Henry and Benton Counties in particular.
Anyone is welcome to our memorials, just ask. Will be running videos on YouTube as soon as they are produced and will post them on my profile. Looking forward to meeting new 'Gravers' in the Central Missouri area.
Have located an excellent cemetery finder website should you need help finding a cemetery, big or small. It's: http://roadsidethoughts.com
