Warren Twp Cemetery
Good morning Heather!

THE SNOW IS MELTING!!!!!!! Isn't it fantastic? It's certainly been a long, cold winter. I am chomping at the bit to get out into a cemetery!!!! And I think I'm going to check out Warren Township Cemetery next week. If enough snow has melted from the ground out there, I think I will photograph the whole thing probably Monday. Yippeeeee........
Anyway, I thought it might be helpful if we exchanged lists of the cemeteries we have both finished. It could save us both valuable time and energy.
When you photograph, do you usually shoot the whole cemetery at once, or just certain sections? I usually photograph the whole thing in one day, and by the time I get home, every body part I still have is aching!!! lol
I haven't photographed much in Isabella County. All of mine have been in Clare, Mecosta, Missaukee, Oceana, Midland, Bay and Huron.
Let me know if you have any specific cemeteries in mind for this year. I'll keep in touch with you as to which ones I have done so that we don't repeat what the other has already done. Sound good?

No, I've never submitted anything to them. Are they easy to deal with? Sometimes you run into people on those sites that think they own the whole thing. I probably should upload my photos for them, since I take so many.

Warren Twp Cemetery photos
Hi Heather!

Quick question..........Have you photographed all of Warren Township Cemetery? I noticed that you have added photos to several of the memorial pages I have set up recently. The reason I ask is that Warren Township Cemetery was going to be the first cemetery that I photograph once this damned snow finally goes away. But if you have already done it, then I won't need to. Please let me know how much of that cemetery you have done.

Thanks a million!!!

obits
Thanks a million!!! I usually send them through the edit tab so that you only have to drag, copy and paste to the memorial.

adding obits
Hi Heather!
Just wondering......do you ever add obituaries to the sites you have created? The reason I ask is because I often come across obits for the deceased that you have created memorials for.
Tom Ladner and I shoot obits back and forth all the time to post to the sites we've set up. Just wondering if you accepted obits, too.
I realize there are some Gravers who are totally against posting any info beyond birth and death info, and I can respect that.

condor.cmich.edu website
Good morning Heather!
Yes, the condor.cmich.edu website is actually a link from the Pere Marquette Library in Clare. It is a direct link to the Clark Historical Library at Central Michigan University. Central has been archiving newspapers for quite some time now and they are all available on line and free of charge. Just go to the Pere Marquette District Library site and click on the little brown Links tab. Then, under Genealogy, there are about a dozen hyperlinks. Just click one of the Clark Historical Library ones and you're good to go. They have the old Clare Sentinel Newspaper digitized from about 1870 to 1999. How cool is that!!?!!
Take care and stay warm,
Cathy

P.S.- Can't wait for all of this nasty winter weather to go away so I can get out of the house and back into the cemeteries!!!!

I checked out the photo you added (zoomed in), the dates look like:

Jan 31 1901
Apr 30 1901

I have noticed death certs aren't always correct, so I go by what is engraved on the headstone
