Help!! Help!! Help!!
This is the home
for all 102 counties for the State of Illinois in
which everyone has numerous ancestors buried in one or more cemeteries,
whether well cared for or not. My main goal is to put as many
online here for easy look-ups & reference for other people to enjoy,
contribute, submit tombstone photos, information on persons buried in
cemeteries, abandoned ones will be mostly on the endangered cemetery
pages. I also need to find the time to update said page.
there are 102 counties in the State of Illinois it is going to be a
little hard for just little old me to make all these web pages but for
now I'm trying to get tombstone photos from the counties online and to
preserve them forever here my little space.
If you would care to adopt
email me which county you are interested in.
I can sure use the help in making web pages as they take time. any of
them are up for adoption. I have some with online links with more of
them to come in the foreseen future.
One is actually adopted and online
at this site and I would really like to Thank Elizabeth Davis for all
the work she has been doing on Vermilion County, with the cemetery
listings, her tombstone photo work is just great. Visit her link
below to see what a great job she has done and continues to do.
Other online link which has
been much work for me & also for Kathy Mills. She typed, took
tombstone photos last summer while living in Quincy, IL. Now she
lives in N. C. and doing this for N. C. in the county she lives in.
Sure miss her. I'm still going through tombstone photos I took last
summer & fall while visiting my friend in Clayton & Kathy in Quincy and
now a new trip I just took down to see Pat. Pat is one of the
people you will see with my daughter Kate, my now 4year old great-nephew
in some of the tombstone photos. They are all a big help.-------- But if
someone out there would like to adopt the Adams county site or co-host
with me I would be most grateful-------and with more contributions from
me as I visit there quite frequently feel free to email me and be sure
to visit the link below.
January 28, 2008, I have taken the adopt me
out of the county table below. It was just too much for me every time I
looked at the page. If there is not a county page adjoining this
Illinois Saving Graves County Cemetery listings page for the 102
counties in our State then I will eventually make one.
The counties I know for
sure which are adopted are Stark & Peoria, by Karen Hammer hosted
elsewhere, I do have a county page here with photos I've taken as a
result of my growing up in Stark Co., IL., Vermillion Co., IL by
counties but not all cemeteries for said counties.
