MY RESEARCH STYLE - FANS (friends, associates, neighbors): I research not only my ancestors, but also their FAN's, hoping to connect the dots (primary doc'uments) between them.

~~ @ ~~

QUESTIONS: My father always told me to ask questions, for how was I to learn anything if I didn't, therefore I pick brains. If I picked yours today, consider it a compliment, cause you have a whole library in there! :)

~~ @ ~~

DEATH RECORDS: can be found not only on
1. gravestones, but also in the cemetery caretaker's records
2. in Area Newspaper Death Notices &/or Obituaries
3. in Death certificates -- many states now have them online. Missouri Does! (1910 )
4. on Rootsweb, www.rootsweb.ancestry.com
5. in Doctor/Hospital Records
5. in Funeral Leaflets
6. in Funeral Home/Mortician Records
7. in Ministerial/Church Records
8. in Coroner Inquest Records
9. in Probate records
10. in Published genealogies or scrapbooks at your local Genealogical Center or library
11. or in Family Bibles & Letters.

CALCULATING BIRTHDATES: When you see a tombstone with only the death date and age, use this handy tool to calculate their approximate birthday: https://www.timeanddate.com/date/dateadd.html

~~ @ ~~

CITATIONS: When citing sources on your memorials, please include the repository where the material was found, so others can look it up there also.

For example:

"Title of Article or Chapter" Author. Title of Book. Author. Publisher, Publisher's City/State; Date Year of Publication. Volume (if there is one); Number (if there is one), Page Number. Repository: (source of material, where you obtained it, be it the library, genealogical society library, National Archives, a website, etc.).

~~ @ ~~

GRAVESTONE PRESERVATION: Did you know in many states it is against the law to vandalize cemeteries, graves, or to deface tombstones? In Tennessee, for example, it is a felony. In Missouri, it is a class A misdemeanor. See Missouri's Revised Statutes -- Chapter 214, Cemeteries, Section 214.131 (passed into law in 1987).

However, when taking a photograph, please trim the grass around a tombstone with hand trimmers and brush it away with a soft bristle brush to get the best possible picture. While down there for both the trimming and photograph, record the name, dates, cemetery name and location on a clipboard. Very helpful when taking many photographs in one day.

~~ @ ~~

LINKS: Links are possible between family members even when you do not have a parent to connect them. Findagrave provides HTML coding to link them together. Go to "Help FAQ's" in your side menu, type in "Links" in the search engine; then scroll down to question "How do I add a link from one memorial to another?"

Seems like I should know something as this is my area of operation but drawing a blank, I will research it some and get back with you or something. Jarrott

RE: Question -- Lulbegrud Church
It does not surprise me that there are several different names for this cemetery. I only post cemeteries that I have personally been to. There are a few exceptions but I add a note where the information came from. Many people post cemeteries from obits of family records without searching Find A Grave to see if the memorial all ready exists.

As for the church records, I do not know of any records. I named the cemetery the Boone Cemetery because it was the only name I found in the cemetery at the time I was there. Here is a copy of the inventory sheet I prepared when I was there.

Directions: From US 60 at Reid Village, take Prewitt Road south 2.1 miles. The cemetery will be on the left in a field.

Date recorded: 2/08/2001
Recorded by: Kendel Culbertson
Location: Prewitt Road, Montgomery County, KY
Unmarked graves: 0
Quad: Mt. Sterling Lat: 38 0112 Long: 835920

NAME DOB DOD NOTES

KELLEY BOONE 6/12/1895 5/24/1901 S/O N.M./SALLY
NOAH M. BOONE 4/06/1850 10/09/1913
SALLIE BOONE 7/27/1786 12/31/1861 W/O THOMAS
SQUIRE G. BOONE 1850 1910
THOMAS BOONE 12/24/1785 9/22/1855 H/O SALLIE

REMARKS: This cemetery is not fenced and livestock have severally impacted the site. Most of the stones have been stacked against Thomas Boon's monument. There may be other burials here but I was unable to tell. John Prewitt told me at one time there was a church at this site. He gave me a photograph of the church and cemetery and there appears to be several more graves here. This church was used by the early settlers and later became a church for the local colored people.

Hope this helps,

Kendel
