Re: [Genealogy Research Club] Re: Documenting Cemeteries
- Melanie, I'm going to check on the genealogical society on Warren and find out what they have to say. Thanks, Barb

Digital pictures are great. I would also transcribe them right away
while you are standing there just in case the information isn't
perfectly clear on the photo. If it's hard to read you can try to do
rubbings of the stone. I have done that with some pretty old stones
to some success. We just used paper and crayons but I know you can
use chalk or charcoal for that too. Maybe first thing to do is to
contact the local historical or genealogical society to see if they
are currently indexing or have already indexed the cemeteries. Then
maybe you can contribute to their website or published index. Or if
nothing else they can tell you if those cemeteries have been indexed
or who to contact about that project at a state level.
Hope that helps and good luck!!!

cemeteries that may have been forgotten by most people. What would I
have to do to recorded the people buried there? I have a didgel
camera that I could take pictures of the headstones, but what about
the stones that cannot be read or headstones that are gone? I would
like to be able to list these so the people are not forgotten.
Information on this would be very helpful to me and to others who
have the same question. Thanks, Barb
