In Response To: Help... Cemetery restoration/clean-up ()
Not too long ago there was a poster here from Texas who seemed to have extensive knowledge of cemetery preservation and restoration in Texas. She seemed to have had experience in setting 501c3 (?) non-profit corporations in order to raise funds. She had found some obscure old law in Texas that allowed her to get money from the state of Texas. She mentioned she was using ground penatrating radar to identify grave sites. Her name was Velma but I could not find any of her posts by searching. I have no experience in cemetery restoration and Velma said she was willing to assist me in getting started but cemetery we were discussing was in Houston and that is around 160 miles away so I was not seriously considering getting involved in something that far away. Perhaps you could ask the forum administration to assist you in finding one of her old post so you could email her direct.
