Please feel free to use my photos for your personal genealogy endeavors.

Consort and relic refer to a spouse, usually to women. A consort is a husband or wife of a living spouse. A relic is a widow.

Latin abbreviation: H.S.E.
hic situs est (here lies)

Latin abbreviation: H R
Hic Requiescit (here rests)

Latin abbreviation: AEC
Anno Emmanuelis Christi (In Christ Emmanuel)

Latin abbreviation: IHS"
Iesus Hominum Salvator (Jesus, Saviour of men)

"INRI" is an abbreviation for the Latin "Iesus Nazarenus, Rex Iudaeorum" ("Jesus the Nazarene, King of the Jews")

I typically do not put in calculated birth dates from the Aged information on a gravestone. Those dates tend to be incorrect.

I need help with St. Michaels's cemetery, East Elmhurst, Queens county, New York.

latitude and longitude
To add latitude and longitude for a FindAGrave memorial, click on Edit Plot.

If you place the latitude and longitude in the URL of a browser, the browser will take you to that location. For example, copy and paste the following into the URL of a browser (include the comma and the space: 38.7338, -86.48588

If you download Google Earth (it is free software) and put in the search box the latitude and longitude (for example 38.7338, -86.48588), it will take you to the grave area.

I use Google Earth to find the latitude and longitude. I type in the latitude and longitude for the graveyard and then adjust the numbers until the pointer is on the gravestone.
Under Tools, Options, 3D View
- Decimal Degrees
Under Tools, Options, Navigation
- Do not automatically tilt while zooming

If you leave a space before the values, an error message, "values are not the correct format", will be returned.

Be sure to include the dash "-" for the longitude, otherwise the person will be buried in China.

RE: Frank and Jessie DuVon
You are welcome... I was very proud of myself for finding their gravesite (luck plays a part here) but disappointed I couldn't get a better picture. The stone (perhaps both) are pretty deeply buried. It would require tools to clear it, which I didn't have. I'm not sure, the cemetery might provide a service to re-set stones - I've heard of that, but you'd need to contact the office.

Hello,
I went back and looked and you were right. My page for Thomas Randles was Thomas Chaney. I have deleted him. Thanks so much for the help.

Thank you!
Thank you or whoever added the obituary on infant Adams buried in Freedom Cemetery # 149683393 in Mitchell Indiana. I don't know how you did this but it was extremely helpful. This was my grandmother's baby girl and I've spent a year trying to find her. Her Birthday is not listed but it was August 19th, 1910. She only lived a month.
