Cuyahoga Links
Portage Home

I'll be happy to transcribe and photograph tombstones that you request as long as they're within the following counties:
Cuyahoga, Portage, Stark, Summit
I'll even consider transcribing entire cemeteries, or sections of cemeteries on a case-by-case basis. Once in awhile I may have to charge a fee, depending on how much research and how much travelling I'll need to do, but would never do so without working out the details in advance with you.
I f you wish to make a request, or have questions, email me!
