Hi,I'm in southeast Nebraska. If you need something checked-out here, pop me an email & I'll see if I can help you out.Here are some things I've found useful to know, in no particular order:I think there is a glitch in the software to upload photos, possibly in the phone app. For reasons I haven't yet determined, occasionally the photos end up rotated 90 degrees on here. This site doesn't cope well with Czech diacritical marks. So, I've tried to avoid putting them in the searchable fields. I do try to show them either in the notes or the photo captions, however.
Many older stones in southeast Nebraska are in Czech or German. If I can give a reasonable translation, you might find it in italics or [brackets] or sometimes just along with the original in the photo caption.Sometimes the last name on a woman's stone is not the last name she went by when she died.As nice as it may be to have a head-on shot of the marker, sometimes you have to get a bit off to the side to prevent being reflected in the shiny stones.If I have uploaded a photo of a grave of your relative, I won't wish to claim copyright against you. If you post an obit, of course I can't claim that somebody won't claim copyright against you. BUT it would be nice if you credited its source.If you are in Nebraska (or anywhere in the United States, I think), the longitude of the grave has to be negative. Otherwise, when you click on it, it shows that the grave is somewhere in China. If you see one that I missed, please feel free to let me know or fix it for me.
