Bio and Links
What a great site. I found it a few years ago while researchig family and decided to add 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 for deaths prior to 1995 are from grave photos. I am working to get all the photos uploaded, but this is a slow process. If there is not a photo on the memorial you are interested in, just 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 (in rare circumstances, I make exceptions), but will add excerpts; I will not include names of living persons.

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.

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

Pictures may be copied for personal, non-commercial purposes (including adding to, if desired); a small credit would be appreciated (but not necessary).

RE: Danner family in Bluff City Cemetery
Thanks for all your work on this family! I was confused about Katy/Catherine and thought I deleted that request, thanks for making the correction, and for letting me know about the declines. This is a big help in my tree.

Alice C Engel
Hi Bob, I think we have added a duplicate entries for Alice Engel ,Find A Grave#133643247 (your entry) and Find A Grave#125827187 (my entry). Do you have a headstone picture for your entry to compare the two? Also, is there a Lawrence Engel buried near her? That would be her husband.

RE: Photo Requests for Lakewood
I just talked to the folks in the office at Lakewood trying to get lot and plot info from them. They informed me that they don't have any other info other than Sec 4 but they said to drop into the office and they will draw the locations on a map for you. They said that both have headstones.

Bob, do you know if any photo requests are being fulfilled from Lakewood Memorial Park. I notice that there are quite a few.

Moore burials at Bluff City
Bob, thanks for the photos documenting the burials of the Moores, and for processing all the edits. I apologize for wrongly correcting Loretto's name to Loretta--a new edit to follow. Who ever heard of a woman named Loretto? Thanks for putting in so much time and helping me with my family tree.
