|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 names of living persons in obituaries. Also, a reference should be included in obituaries revealing the source.
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 Ancestry.com, 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: http://regex.info/exif.cgi

Thank you for all you do.
|John Wilson||RE: Marcus Child|
Thank you Bob. I looked at your addition, and it's just perfect.
If the family did add Marcus' name to the headstone then that would be a touching gesture. It leaves no doubt for us that he was Chloe's husband.
|Sandie Schwarz||Henry Galske|
Thank you Bob for your recent photos you have added to the memorial of Henry Galske and his wife Erma Galske. Henry was a brother of my great-uncle, August, "Gus" Galske, and I have been working on linking all these children to their parents memorials I created. On a side note, I see you have virtual cemeteries for veterans from Bluff City from all the past wars, a great way to record people from the community who served our country!
|pz||Ethel Brandt wife of Charles|
Hi Bob- Thank you so much for your work and efforts. I really appreciate it. Would you set up the memorial page for Ethel? Her parents were Robert and Rozena Bridenstein.
Robert: #58163689 Rozena: 58163678
Rozena's memorial page has her obit. which shows Ethel as her daughter.
Again, I thank you so much, Peggy

Please transfer my direct ancestors over to me! I want to thank you in advance! It is appreciated! They are: 113743311 113743318
|Marlene Chaney||Walter and Bessie McLean|
Thank you for the gravestone photo for Walter and Bessie in Bluff City Cemetery.
|Marlene Chaney||Alice McLean|
Thank you for bringing it to my attention that I had Alice McLean buried in Bluff City. I had found my error before reading your email but neglected to remove the photo request that was in error. I have since deleted the request for Bluff City and made a new one for Mount Hope Cemetery. All is well that ends well.
Thank you for your help.
|priscilla ross-fox||I forgot to add|
Now I know who to come to for any Bluff City burials! Thanks
|priscilla ross-fox||Laura Powers|
Somewhere on my pc is the account of what happened. She is in my tree so I've done some research on her with help of a descendant of of this family.
I did not include any of what I know because I didn't really want to cause any problems.
