***If you send me a question in a message and your messages are turned off, I will not respond.

**For all that is good PLEASE RESEARCH your photo request! I see to many request for photos for cemeteries/churchyard/priory's that are defunct. If you take the time to do a simple search on the internet you can find a lot of use full information on many cemeteries/churchyard/priory's. Also take time to read the cemeteries/churchyard/priory's description (if there is one) it may tell you all you need to know before asking for a photo of your 23rd great grandma who was buried in a cemeteries/churchyard/priory that no longer exist!

*Also, If you are requesting a photo of a grave from someone over 500 years ago sometimes less. After someone is in the ground for 50 years their tissues will have liquefied and disappeared, leaving behind mummified skin and tendons. Eventually those too will disintegrate, and after 80 years in a coffin in the ground, your bones will crack as the soft collagen inside them deteriorates, leaving nothing but the brittle mineral frame behind. After a century, the last of your bones will have collapsed into dust. And only the most durable part of your body, your teeth, will remain. So unless your ancestor had money and status obtaining a "picture" of their tombstone may be slim.

Now, I enjoy researching mine and others family genealogy.

I like to document over seas cemeteries and old church burial records. I think everyone has a right to be remembered and hope that the little bit I can do will allow them to live on for generations to come.

I also enjoy researching old churches and providing corrections to them through the Find a Grave forums.

I highly recommend doing research on a cemetery prior to just adding it so that you can input the correct information and location! Googlemaps is your friend and can be extremely useful in finding the coordinates for any cemetery many which are already marked on it!

A few suggestions:

When adding cemeteries it should be done in that area's language! Although there are exceptions to this. Find a Grave is world wide and Americanizing everything is diminishing those cultures, languages and people.

If you are translating old burial transcripts they many be written in Latin, which was the language of many churches. The names may also be written in short hand.

Example:

Eliza., Eliz. - Elizabeth
Thom., Thos. - Thomas
Gul. (latin for Gulielmus) - William
Saml. - Samuel
Rich. - Richard
Xtopher - Christopher
Jas. - James

If you would like a transfer just ask and follow the FG guidelines!
