Find Family Burial Site
Headstones provide one of the most personal links that we can have with our ancestors. Headstones mark the places where we can be physically closest to our ancestors. To the family historian, headstones and memorial inscriptions provide further details about their ancestor and their families. In many instances the headstone or memorial will include an epitaph that captures the essence of their ancestor life and their relationship with other family members. Some family historians find that it is not practical to locate, record, and photograph their ancestors headstones and memorial inscriptions, due to lack of time, or the distance they live from them.
We will attempt to locate your ancestors gravestones and memorial inscriptions, along with searches for relevant information. If we are successful in locating the burial site and headstone we will make a written record/transcribe, along with headstone and general location photographs. (Up to 10 photographs will be included).
