Another link to Tombstone Transcriptions and Tombstone Photos is FindaGrave.com
Jan Beattie encourages everyone who has any cemetery photos of any ancestors' graves anywhere (not just Oklahoma)
to upload their gravestone photos to sites like FindaGrave to create memorials for their ancestors.
You can also link your ancestor to their parents and siblings. A FindaGrave memorial can also be done for your
ancestors who are buried in unmarked graves, buried at sea or whose burial locations are unknown. Even if someone else
has already created a memorial for your relative, you may add additional information or photographs that can be added
to make a more complete memorial. This is an excellent way to honor your ancestors and perhaps meet new kin or
even gain new knowledge about your family history. Many times the tombstone photographs are uploaded by an
individual or local group transcribing cemeteries and may not actually have any connection to your relative.
Most are usually happy to allow you to take over "management" of the memorial. Oftentimes, they are thrilled
that you have additional information and are agreeable to adding it or even transferring management responsibilities to you.
