ABOUT THIS SITE (Comments by Cleadie Barnett)
Betty Damery and I met some
20 to 25 years ago, and like most people interested in genealogy, rubbed
shoulders off and on from then on.
During the month of March 2007, this site is undergoing a major revamping, and expansion. The initial aim was to get all the cemetery transcripts held by Cleadie Barnett, online, in whatever format was quickest, with a bit of "fixing" to form a semblance of conformity (more yet to do.) From there links were made to existing online items, either on this site, or elsewhere. This gave us a good idea what direction to take to complete the overall design, and steps were taken to bring them about. It will still take many hours of formatting, sorting the photos, etc. before the work is caught up to date with the materials on hand.
There are two little cameras on the county list pages. The dark camera means there are actual photos on the site they are beside. The camera may be linked to the site, or the link may be made by the name of the cemetery. Just pass the cursor over the camera to see if there is a link there.
The faded camera means we have photos for that cemetery, but have not had time to mount them. If you are interested in one of those cemeteries, drop a line to us at the e-mail address above and I will put it next on my list to upload. (In the order I receive the requests.)
There are many types of cemetery
listings on this site. Over time they will be refined, but for now they
are being added "as is" so that you will note the many places a cemetery
record might be found. There are a number of list for areas that are not
on the internet - such as:
Since my last post a lot of changes have occured. Most of the cemetery have been listed, many with their photos and updated text. Unfortunately, a couple of years ago I ran out of time and energy to complete the transcriptions, so I added the remainder of the photos in Albums to make them available to researchers.
These Albums contained the photos of individual cemeteries, but had no text, which meant they had to be viewed one at a time. Earlier this month I began the task of removing the Albums and transcribing the information on the stones, so they could be searched by names. Hopefully this project will be completed within the next few weeks.
