What I Am Currently Working On

30 Jun 2016 - I am currently processing my January 2014 photos for the Cass Township Cemetery in Shelby County, Iowa.

January 19th, 2014 was a weird day in western Iowa that year. That morning it was 18°, and by afternoon it was up to 64°. In the 60's? I just had to hop in my car and travel to a cemetery. I chose Cass Township as one of them. I'm glad I got out that day, because 2 days later, we were down to -4° at 09:47 in the morning.

I have uploaded some of these Cass township photos over the past two years, but I really don't like them. The grass is brown, and looks quite 'stark' in appearance when you compare them to photos with summer green. I waited two years to see if anyone would photograph the cemetery, but alas--no one has. I will have to make do with these photos--because I doubt that I will ever return to this cemetery...

On 19 Jan 2014, I spent 1 hour and 31 minutes at this cemetery.

This is one of those cemeteries that has a memorial locked up by merge or delete. The main page says 306 memorials. If you click on the list that says 306, it will take you to the page that will show 305 memorials. I wonder which memorial is locked up?

There are still 73 FindaGrave memorials with no photo. When I started processing photos on 12 Jun 2016 there were 179 memorials with no photo.


Also Currently Working On

20 Jun 2016 - I am currently processing my March and June 2016 photos for the Philadelphia Cemetery at Mystic, Appanoose County, Iowa.

As of 20 Jun 2016 I have spent about 3 hours at this cemetery.

There are still 141 FindaGrave memorials with no photo.

11 Jun 2016 - I finished processing my October 2015 photos for the Linwood (Beebeetown) Cemetery in Harrison County, Iowa.

I had taken (and uploaded) some Linwood photos in 2012, and over the past year I have been slowly replacing those 2012 pictures with better photos that I took in October 2015.

As of 11 Jun 2016, I have spent about 2+ hours at this cemetery.

There are still 15 FindaGrave memorials with no photo. Of these, a couple are duplicates. I also have about 15-20 photos of stones that I can't read, or only have initials on the stone (foot stone?). I will check into these later.

FindaGravers should follow this simple rule: 'Quality not Quantity'

RE: Schwarzenbach
Thank you for the offer, although it really isn't necessary. They are 6th cousins a couple times removed; I'm just trying to get the family linked together on here.
