5/12/2017 Woodlawn
5/12/2017 Hamilton

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.

The project consists of surveying the entire cemetery by photographing and gps'ing each gravesite. This information is gathered to prevent encroachment from development. All survey information is posted on the Horry County Government website. Photos are also posted to findagrave. Hopefully our efforts will help others 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.

“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, 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."
Susan Rogerson Perhala

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 read the impression.

I emailed you a copy of the pic. Its better quality than the one on find a grave. I took it on my iphone but its totally printable quality if you ever desired to print it.

RE: Reading difficult stones
I can't wait to try this method. I have never done the flour or powder or any of that stuff because I was afraid I would damage the stone but this seems to be safe from what I have read about it. Thanks for the info!

I got your edit & her daughter did outlive her but she could not read or write (daughter Helen). So that brings me back to square one. Any suggestions?
