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:

Thank you so much for taking the photo of my grandparent's headstone (Alice & Lewis Bell)!! I never knew them, I was born Feb. 6, 1969 and they died within weeks of my birth. My Grandfather came over from Ireland when he was 15 and my dad had told me such wonderful stories about his parents. This makes me feel a little more connected to them. They were living here in California when they passed away, but because her family was from Illinois they were buried there. I hope to get out that way someday and see the other family plots.

Again, thank you!

RE: Lyman Hall family
Thank You Sir for spending a Friday in April at Bluff City Cemetery.
From research I knew that DR Hall(my Great Great Grandfather)was buried in Elgin. He was in the Civil War and I believed he was at Bluff City from a Registry and an Obit that said burial in Elgin.
I had NO idea that Martha Ann Fay (my Great Great Grandmother) or other family members were there.

Again thanks very much your work is appreciated
