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 generally do not include obituaries, but will add them on request of close family only, please include the newspaper name and publication date or it will not be added.

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).

This is a bit off the topic but I am hoping you can help. My Aunt is buried at Bluff City Cemetery and I need to figure out how to get her deceased information put on her tombstone. The tombstone was ordered at the same time as her husband when he passed away in 2001 but I have no idea how to go about getting her information taken care of. Can you assist?

Thank you.

Thanks Bob for adding info. and links for her. Yes, I did not know Charley & Lena Nelson personally, but my cousin, who is 82, is their grandson. I am adding the memorials, and sharing with him. He really enjoys talking about the past, his cousin, my mother was 84, and has since passed away in 2012. Roy Nelson Jr. and Jean Linderman Mancill record# 86532980.
God bless you, Sally

I was looking at the Laird Family Funeral Home site, in Elgin, IL. I noticed that you had Dora's birthdate as July 15th, and they showed it as July 5th. Just thought you might want to know. Have a good day.

I made the correction to George Gralak. Are you related? If so, I can make transfers.
