latitude and longitude
To add latitude and longitude for a FindAGrave memorial, click on Edit Plot.

If you place the latitude and longitude in the URL of a browser, the browser will take you to that location. For example, copy and paste the following into the URL of a browser (include the comma and the space: 38.7338, -86.48588

If you download Google Earth (it is free software) and put in the search box the latitude and longitude (for example 38.7338, -86.48588), it will take you to the grave area.

I use Google Earth to find the latitude and longitude. I type in the latitude and longitude for the graveyard and then adjust the numbers until the pointer is on the gravestone.
Under Tools, Options, 3D View
- Decimal Degrees
Under Tools, Options, Navigation
- Do not automatically tilt while zooming

If you leave a space before the values, an error message, "values are not the correct format", will be returned.

Be sure to include the dash "-" for the longitude, otherwise the person will be buried in China.

RE: Stephenson
You are very welcome. It was a beautiful day in the cemetery. I added a 2 infants that were in the family plot. One could be James and Katherine's baby, born in 1883. Maybe you have family information on an infant. The other is son Ives with wife, Leah's baby.

Good morning,

Thanks for letting me know. I deleted my record and sent a message to the other contributor about the spelling of the last name.

You left a photo on this memorial, its a nice photo, I'm wondering if by chance if you have the whole photo, the one you added has been cropped as to cut the stones off that were in the back ground, I'm trying to get a pic of the three stones in a regular size photo that hasn't been cropped, I'm hoping you have one.

Thanks so much for the question. Mine is a dup and I will be deleting mine. I try to be careful about duplicates, but this one slipped by me. Once again, thank you for the heads up.

johnston-johnson ???
You sent me info regarding Carl Johnson buried in Monroe County. The father's name is spelled Opal Johnston, as are his brothers and sisters that are listed. I am wondering about connecting them, when possibly wrong, since names are spelled differently.
