April 2016 Current survey work completed for Horry County, SC:
Pine Island near Socastee, SC (620+ burials).
Mount Calvary #2, Little River, SC is surveyed now for Horry County (May 23, 2016).
Durant Cemetery just outside of Conway off Hwy 905 -12 burials (May 20, 2016).
St John Freewill Baptist (187 burials) 5/29/2016.
Union Chapel (51 burials) 5/29/2016.
370 Known cemeteries (in Horry County, within and outside the city limits
249 have been Inventoried
210 have been included in the Horry County Historic Cemetery Registration Project.

Volunteering with the Horry County Historic Cemetery Registration Project has taken us to cemeteries a good distance away as Horry County is quite large. The goal of this project is to support the existence of a cemetery for the future, the location of it's burials and names of the deceased buried there. The project consists of surveying the entire cemetery by photographing and gps'ing each gravesite. This information is kept by the Planning Department of Horry County and made available when building permits are requested. Our photos are also posted to findagrave in the hopes of helping others with their family research. Hopefully our efforts will be used by many who are researching their ancestors and who want to visit the final resting places of their family members. If you would like to use any of our stone photos we have taken you are welcome to do so.

QUOTE FROM author DAVID EAGLEMAN:
“There are three deaths. The first is when the body ceases to function. The second is when the body is consigned to the grave. The third is that moment, sometime in the future, when your name is spoken for the last time.” - David Eagleman

The Grand Strand Genealogy Club held in Chapin Library, Myrtle Beach, SC, meets 2nd Saturday of the month, 10:30 am 1st floor conference room.

RESEARCHING: Rogerson, Clemons, Godwin, Porter, Wiehrs, Asendorf, Wittschen, White, Lancaster, Tarver, Partridge. Husband's side: Perhala, Zima, Kuchta.

My personal belief: "To each of you reading this, if you are a cemetery walker, then God Bless for your energy. And if you document your findings with photos or entries on fag.com, God Bless again and I'm grateful for your work done and your future efforts. Each grave contains someone's loved one who has passed away. Each life had meaning and still influences those left behind. We carry our loved ones in our hearts even after they are gone from this earth."
Blessings,
Susan Rogerson Perhala

HOW TO READ A DETERIORATING STONE:
spray water may help, sometimes in combination with a soft toothbrush. Sometimes I put the toothbrush into the dirt beside the stone, using the dirt like nature's ink, and rub the toothbrush (dirt and all) across the inscription/dates. Too much water and you get nothing.

Another option is to use aluminum foil on the stone surface. Enough foil to wrap around the corners of the stone. Use soft toothbrush to brush across the foil and get an impression of what's on the stone. Remove the foil and take it to a shaded place to be able to read the impression on the foil.

Sometimes I am lucky enough to find the information I need on ancestry, maybe a birth or death certificate, sometimes an obit that gives date information or names spouse/parents, etc.

RE: African American research
Hi there!

Somehow I veered off into African American research. Thinking I knew AA fairly decently, it made me realize that I was ignorant of so many things!

For the past 15+ years we rent a shack at the beach in RI. Two years ago, I went to a talk at the library given by a Friend/Quaker. It got my inner-nerd put into high gear!!

Yesterday, I went to Newport (RI) to look at an African burial ground. No matter how many long time residents that I ran across--all walking their dogs-- no one knew of the burial grounds. I Finally found it in the corner of the larger cemetery. The stones were beautiful and I couldn't believe...I don't know...I was blown away. The stones are for Slaves (Servants) put up by their slave holder. (I have to look into some of the back stories.)

They are from the early 1700s. It made me realize how important it is to get them recorded for prosperity.

Thanks for writing,
Maureen NYC nerd

RE: Dan Alexson's memorial
First off thank you for the condolences. Second, I am active but have had problems with my laptop that are still not resolved plus we live in the middle of nowhere in Chaparral New Mexico and internet out here is spotty at times.

RE: Christian Chapel AME
I finally figured it out. Can I ask why you were all the way up here taking photos if you volunteer for Horry County?

RE: Christian Chapel AME
I went back out and took 70 more photos of this cemetery but unfortunately I can't figure out how to get them from my new iPhone onto the website. I tried for several hours and finally gave up. There are many graves there that have never been photographed however. I only got to about 1/3 of them.

RE: Christian Chapel AME
There's a mistake with the information you have for Arthur G. Bellamy. His tombstone says he died on Jan. 2 and you have Jan. 1.

Oh yes there were many you could read and just as many you could not read.
