Find a Grave ID


I started doing genealogy after sitting in the sand for 6 months during Desert Storm. War has a way of changing one's perspective.
I found a gold mine of genealogical information on Find A Grave, and decided to do my part. Use any of my pictures if you need them, and please point out any mistakes I may have made.
I finished documenting the graves in section K. Calvary Cemetery Cherry Hill, NJ. It took a year. I'll be working next on "Old E" section at Calvary, weather permitting. Most of the burials in this area are from the 1950's to 1970's.
"To write a perfect genealogy, is beyond the power and skill of man. As his thoughts turn toward the misty ages of the past in search of ancestral knowledge, he soon finds himself like a wanderer over a trackless desert, utterly lost upon the wide domain on which he has entered, and as a mirage fades away and disappears before his wondering vision, so does much sought for data, elude his most faithful research."
Thomas Emmons, 1905

UPDATE: October 2019. I am now using my tablet for photos. It tags the grave with GPS location. It's a big improvement.
