Finished the Grace Cemetery in McDonald, Kansas just in time for their 125th birthday. Still missing a few obituaries but someone recently found some old newspapers so I'm hoping they get them on microfilm so I can look at them.

I am now working on the St Francis Cemetery and the Bird City Cemetery. As soon as we get some warmer weather, I am going there to take more pictures.

Anyone can use my photos for the geneology research. Please credit me for the picture, but you do not need special permission.

If anyone wants any of the memorial that I have posted, just send me a message. I will be happy to transfer memorials if they are not my immediate family.

Working on my family trees since 1976.

When my brother passed away in March of 2010, I wanted to do some kind of volunteer work in his honor. Since he is buried at Fort Logan National Cemetery, I became a volunteer for that cemetery. However, I also wanted to do the photos of my family that have passed on. Since my husband and I are retired, we began stopping at many little cemeteries and taking pictures of tombstones and listing them on the web site.

Thanks to everyone for their nice responses for the pictures I take.

If you live close to the Mayflower Cememtery in Rawlins County I would really like a picture of this memorial you created. Another contributor thinks he is buried somewhere else and the gravestone will clear this up. Thanks so much!

I appreciate the Wamhoff photo for Alvin and Winifred Wamhoff but it is difficult to see the dates on the headstone. I was hoping to be able to use the photo with my family history but it is useless to me if the dates cannot be read.

RE: William E Taylor
You are welcome! I think I found an obituary for him, and sent it to the manager, who will most likely add it in a day or so.

I want to thank you for taking the time to search for a tombstone for Neil Bolyard. Unfortunately, not everyone has a tombstone. Your effort is greatly appreciated.
