How do you do, I am a male baby boomer, born in SE Connecticut. Lived the past 31yrs in Bristol County Massachusetts Always enjoyed roaming cemeteries. Have only been doing my family genealogy research diligently since Jan 2011. Currently undertaking on my own the huge task of documenting in-laws cemetery, Norton Center Cemetery, Timothy Plain Cemetery & Norton Common Cemetery. Check my virtual cemeteries Sections work in progress. Willing to help in anyway I can, anyone needing assistance finding family cemetery info. Use of my photos, you need only ask & add credit where credit is do. Thank you
Tip:How to add GPS (lat/lon): to memorials "without" a GPS device or GPS photo capabilities
*****Updated Apr 18, 2014********
I have now found that you can now obtain GPS coordinates from the latest version of https://www.google.com/maps/. It's pretty much the same as old version except you don't have to switch to the "Classic" version. In satellite view place your cursor arrow over your found headstone/marker, right click, drop down menu appears with 3 options. Pick the bottom "What's here?" & up in the left hand corner of the map screen, below the search field, a drop down fields displays information with Lat/Long coordinates. Place cursor over highlighted coordinates & a flashing/pulsating dot appears at the requested headstone/marker location on the map. Click the lat/long link below the search field & the new Lat/Long(decimal format) appears in the search field, plus a new red marker with Lat/Long(dd/mm/ss) appear at the chosen spot. Now you can copy & paste the decimal lat/long from the search field into the appropriate [Edit Plot] tab for the requested FAG memorial.
Re: Emerson Smith # 158742596 Thanks for the heads up. Great teamwork! Emerson's memorial in Oak Grove has been taken down. You may want to add a notation on his memorial about the error on the death cert. Thanks again! Janet
