Please let her know that some of these stones have already been photographed and posted at findagrave.com and if she posts the other names, she can request a photo. Volunteers are quite extensive, the system in place efficient and I have had quite a bit of success when requesting photos.

Tina - Yup. Been giving her a little "Find-A-Grave" 101. She's good, and it posting requests for photos. (the ones she is missing). When the snow melts a little, I am going over to take pictures that aren't already online.

Thank you,

Russ

fM,

What is funny about this whole event, is that I am putting the final touches on a Find-A-Grave, A Genealogy Tool, presentation for a local Family History Interest Group. This was a great opportunity to make sure I was addressing the right issues in the presentation.

Thank you,

Russ

Yes, Russ, and probably a great article for the Graveyard Rabbit Journal. Let me know if you are interested.

An Update: Three of the Cemeteries have been updated on Find-A-Grave and on my Blog. I have posted all of the information that I could find on the Zarr Burial Ground on my Blog. Its a sad Burial Ground. Along the way, I ran into another Zarr Researcher, and am trying to connect Charlotte and this other researcher.

I have two more cemeteries to post (workin' on thi) and will have to make another visit to complete the requested Cemeteries. Having difficulty finding them.

Updates later.

fM - Please email me and let me know what your thoughts are for an article. There is a story there, somewhere. I have posted what I could find for Charlotte, on my headstone collection blog.

Thank you,

Russ
