My interest in findagrave started when I worked on a family tree for my husband. We found some of his relatives and where they are buried through this site. It was comforting to look at their headstones and imagine what life was like for them more than 200 years ago. I would like to thank all the volunteers for their time and effort in photographing and documenting the grave sites. I was so impressed with their work that now I am a volunteer and I enjoy spending my free time at the cemeteries documenting headstones of which some, unfortunetly, will be totaly unreadable in a few years. In photographing cemeteries I noticed some of the older, hard to read headstones have been scratched to try and make out a name or date. I DO NOT alter the headstones in any way, instead, I take several photos from different angels to try to read them. If you find any mistakes, please contact me. I am not perfect and do make mistakes and when they are pointed out to me I gladly make the correction.
Any photo from a cemetery that I've posted at Find-A-Grave may be used for family trees, personal use, etc.
Yes that would be great Alice was my Grandfather Kelly's sister and he has been deceased for many years. Thank you so much for what you do, it is so helpful in researching our family tree!!! I live outside of Mobile now and have never been able to go to the cemetery and find the family graves. Thank you for the transfer .
RE: Sylvester Joseph Duval Monika, I was so happy when you found S J Duval his family did not know where he was buried only that he was buried in a catholic church. His relative was so happy and she is in her 90's.thank you so very much, Martha McCollough
Thank you! Thank you for all the work you've done through the years taking photos of the graves. Many of my Brannan and Smith ancestors are in the Macedonia Cemetary and I see your name on many of those photos! Thank you so much!
