African American Cemeteries Forum
In Response To: ancestors ()
I have decided to re-organize or construct a burial map of three cemeteries where my family members are buried. I started last year by going out and drawing a rough sketch of the cemeteries, I included a rectangle space for each gravesite, I wrote down the name(s) that was on the gravestones or markers. For those that I could not read I asked my parents who were with me. Each year I go to the cemetery on Memorial Day or that weekend to clean, I always see numerous people there, so to make a long story short. This year I am going to go earlier as possible and stay as late as I can and visit with each and every person that comes. Hoperfully this way I will get more information for my map and some blank spaces filled in of my history records.
Another avenue you might try is your local funeral home or elders in the community or churches. I am findng these people to be a wealth of information.
Another fellow search,
