I am an active member of The Grand Strand Genealogy Club held in Chapin Library, Myrtle Beach, SC. Meeting time 10:15 am 1st floor conference room.
Next Speaker November 8: Renee Brown Dixon, Washington DC
Subject: Using DNA to track family members

REMEMBER TO BE KIND to one another. It's hard to lose a living friend. Show the same respect and care to the living as to the deceased.

Please be aware of the "edit button" on your profile page.

RESEARCHING: Rogerson, Clemons, Godwin, Porter, Wiehrs, Asendorf, Wittschen. Husband's side: Perhala, Zima, Kuchta.$

As a volunteer with Horry County's Historic Cemetery Registration Project our goal is to gather information for county records. We also offer our photos to findagrave.

Many thanks to these Volunteers with Horry County Historic Cemetery Registration Project:
Susan Perhala (in the field)
Rich Ryals (in the field)
Jody Mishoe (in the field)
Tawnya Gray (orig. coordinator of volunteers)
Kathy Smith (posting info)
Chris Plaisance (posting info)
Johnny McKelvey (posting info)
Michael Johnson (in the field)
Patti Burns (posting info)
Ann Phillips (posting info)

Thanks also to Roger and Karen Lambert, Don Pigate, Barbara Lehman, Tawnya Gray, Robin Pellici Moore, Deborah Spidle, Dot Harcum, and Fred Ricks for guidance and patience.

Horry County is proud to have received South Carolina's "2011 J. Mitchell Graham Memorial Award, the competition's top honor, for it's project to preserve an estimated 450 historic cemeteries in the county's unincorporated areas-approximately one for every 2.5 square miles."
(this quoted portion taken directly from Vol. 22, number 3, p 6, County Focus Magazine, South Carolina Association of Counties).

The more people we have working together, the fewer people we have to work against. The more we do together, the more we get done. The more we learn from each other, the better our results.

A difficult stone can reveal many secrets with a simple spray of water and toothbrush, or aluminum foil wrap and soft toothbrush to obtain an impression. (See memorial #51880376).
PLEASE no flour, shave cream or chalk.

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, 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."

RE: Wilton Golson
My last information is that he is, for all intents and purposes, completely inactive. All contact for him personally or for his memorials actually goes through findagrave. As for fulfilling requests....the pleasure is ours to be able to go to the gravesites. A Thank you is a bonus for us. We love anything that promotes and encourages interest in tracing family histories....Roberta

Browder memorials
Hi ,
I am leaving those for the Browder family since the previous person posted one blurry photo of the actual headstone and then created a photo album with portraits which in themselves are nice but there needs to be at least one good photo of the headstone. Again you can ask admin to merge them and maybe they will add an extra slot so the clear headstone photo is available.

John F. Burg
We photographed the John F. Burg gravestone in St. Cloud Cemetery in St. Cloud, Wisconsin; I just emailed the other memorial's creator & told Dan that of what we did - his is a duplicate.

He has the right gravestone but in the wrong cemetery.

Thankyou very much Susan for the Death Cert. Was this searchable online? I see you are researching the name Rogerson, is this the same line as mine Ulric Stonewall Rogerson?
Thank you again for the DC. Good to see she lived so long. Judi

Hi Susan,
I'm so glad the photo I added was for a friend! Just reading his obituary, I can tell he was a really interesting guy :)
