Bio and Links
I found this great site a few years ago while researching family and decided to start adding local graves. Most entries are for Illinois cemeteries; mainly Bluff City in Elgin, but other cemeteries, too. If I have added a duplicate memorial, please let me know.

Most entries are from grave photos. I am working to get all the photos uploaded, but this is a slow process (probably years). If there is not a photo on the memorial you are interested in, please ask (via edit/suggest a correction), and if I have a photo of that grave I will expedite the upload. Many memorials from 1995 and later are obituary based and there is a higher chance that I do not have a photo. A warning: my photography leaves something to be desired at times; if you have a better photo, please add it.

I do not include obituaries, but will add an appropriate synopsis; without the names of living persons. Please see the Find A Grave policies regarding this.

I am happy to add family link and extra information into memorials. I will generally attempt to confirm the information first, though.

If you would like a transfer, please request it through the Edit-Suggest a correction tab.

I take all the photos that I upload to the site. Pictures may be copied for personal, non-commercial purposes (including adding to, if desired); a small credit would be appreciated (but not necessary).

Most photos include a geotag in the metadata.
This information can be mapped by uploading the photo to Jeffery's EXIF viewer at:

Emma Sell birth
Thanks for the info on Emma's full birthdate. I didn't have that and also for cause of death. I updated her memorial.

Emma Sell
I figured out that Emma is the daughter of William Sell and his wife. I have added her.

Frank Sell stone
Thanks Bob for the pic. I had the stone of his parents. His name must be on the opposite side of their stone. His father was my great grandmother's sister Augusta Sell. If you are any relation to this family would you know who's child Emma b. 1892 is? Emma's stone is behind the larger stone. She died at 3 yrs.
Thanks again,
