Cemeteries can be a great spot to find information about your ancestors, often times you will find others in your family plot and find new family you didn’t know existed. There can be errors made on tombstones and sometimes because of the cost are never corrected. Many cemeteries are online, including photos of the tombstones. When visiting a cemetery, go prepared with tools need to clean the stone, but use nothing but plain water on the stone. You can also do an rubbing with plain white paper and charcoal for those hard to read stones. Be sure to remove all traces of the charcoal when you finish.
