The memorials I have added are a mix of family and those in local cemeteries that I am trying to "complete" so others can find their family members. I am happy to transfer folks to their relatives. Just ask. Please ask?

If a photo I've put up is less than spectacular quality or if I've uploaded it twice, let me know. I will delete.

My projects:
Holy Rosary Cemetery just outside of Medford
GPSing all; photographing as needed; finding about 70% without any memorial, thus creating memorials as I go. Started Aug 19, 2017; at 734 memorials total in cemetery. As of 10/14/2017 I am 99% done with section 1 & 2...and there are 5 or 6 section to go. May 2018: practicing procrastination. Aug 2018: big portions done. Need to re-check with the sexton to differentiate Holy Rosary from Evergreen in the south. 30 Aug 2018, connected with sexton. Photographed the rest of the cemetery. Over 1,000 photos added. Transcriptions completed. Guessing about 300 headstones left w/o memorials. Receive tons of edit and family link updates requested almost immediately upon adding photos. Note: Evergreen I needs to be done, it ha less than 1,000 memorials in it at this time. Another project!

Cemeteries at Athens: Catholic, Lutheran and Village. FAG has Trinity, Calvary, Saint Anthony, and Athens. Originally stopped "just" to fill a photo request and realized the memorial photo requested was located in the wrong cemetery in FAG. Added photo, asked person to transfer memorial to right cemetery, and noted Saint Anthony only had 18 memorials, but has hundreds. Got back home and noted the odd FAG cemetery listing AND that several had identical GPS coordinates, so they don't pull up using the app if you use the map (which I do). Identified and met with the sexton. Entered cemetery merge and AKA and GPS requests on 24 May 2018.

Saint Johns Cemetery on Highway N in town of Wien (FAG says in Edgar, it is not, just has an Edgar mailing address
14-15 May 2018 GPSd and photographed all headstones that were readable. Was there late afternoon and need to go back to photo older, less readable stones in the morning. Added all photos, removed my accidental duplicates Noted that of the original 115 memorials in the cemetery, about 35 were misplaced...aka they were actually buried in Saint Johns Catholic Cemetery in Edgar. Many already had memorials over there, not all. Notified all creators/managers between May 14 and 15...for moves or for delete the dup. Around 400 memorials added.

Emmanuel Lutheran in March Rapids:
GPSed all graves (any missing memorials were added to the database). Completed as of 9 July 2017.

Saint Josephs Catholic Cemetery Eau Pleine:
GPSd and added memorials for any/all missing graves as of 28 May 2017. Currently identifying misplaced memorials that are actually at other cemeteries and a handful of graves w/o headstones per the sexton. One memorial the sexton notes was ashes scattered and not in any cemetery. Need to confirm. May 2018: New headstones waiting for engraver to come. All flagged in cemetery. Engraver delayed. 21 May Engraver did 2 out of 4. Photo'd.

Zion Cemetery Hwy 97.
GPSd all graves; added memorials for those without. Photod all no-photo graves as of 21 May 2018 .

Zion Lutheran Cemetery Hwy 153.
All visible headstones GPSd (one Olson headstone beneath the sod/could not find). Photographed and added memorials for graves without. Done as of May 28, 2017.

Wien Cemetery GPSd all identifiable graves. Done as of March 2017. Notified township about 2 tipped graves. Added or sent suggested biographies based on local township histories and obits. May 2018: Tipped graves righted by township (THANKS!) and one was the grave of Ida, long-standing photo request able to be fulfilled 14 May 2018.

Beaver Township Cemetery Riplinger, WI. Photographed all headstones minus those beneath the snow. Cross-checked memorials to reduce duplicates and misplaced memorials. 2/2017. Returned 5/2017 and found a handful of stones I missed earlier. There are still about a dozen with no readable markings AND quite a few memorials w/o stones. Some are misplaced and I have contacted memorial owners about theirs being in the wrong cemetery w/links to the correct memorial.

Saint Joseph's Catholic in Stratford:
GPSd all headstones; added any missing. Done as of 8 July 2017. Currently adding info and memorials per sexton's map/parish histories. May 2018: new burials (espc cremains burials which hide) need adding.

Saint Adalbert's in McMillan Township:
June 2016:Completed all missing photos and checked every grave against the current list. Found four that were not accounted for, identified the correct cemetery for them and notified contributors. Found several duplicates and one triplicate. Sent FYIs to contributors. Feb 2017 note: many did not update or move incorrectly placed memorials. Admin may need to be contacted in case managers are no longer Gravers. June 2017: Shirley Ostrowski and Alicja Glowinska are buried in St Adalberts in Milwaukee, not here. No response from creator . Submitted to admin. May 2018: more misplaced memorials showing up for St Adlaberts; needs clean up/moves/de-dupes.

Peace Lutheran Cemetery, F1843 Huckleberry Road, Marathon County: I photographed and entered every grave in the cemetery. Paul Richardson, 1927-2001 does not appear to have a headstone or is misplaced. 7/2016

Trinity Lutheran Church Cemetery in Whittlesey, Taylor County: I photographed every grave in the cemetery and entered them into the system. One caveat: I may have missed some Frischmanns since someone seemingly had completed that family before I got there, so after repeatedly running into duplication issues, I skipped most Frischmann graves. 9/2016

Whittlesey Catholic Cemetery, Taylor County: All graves in the cemetery photographed and uploaded into Find a Grave minus three markers that I could not find any marks on (one wooden cross, one plain stone, and one weathered stone), and one grave that the marker was "out" for repair or updating (the concrete foundation was there). Only two memorials in FAG remain without photos, the Reinolts; perhaps they have no stones or are misplaced. Unmarked graves not identified. Complete thru 11/27/2016.

Saint John the Baptist Cemetery in Wurtzberg All graves photographed, GPSd, and entered into FAG as of 9/2016. All new graves added May 2018.
