I'm Still Here!

I just wanted to make a note that I'm still here! Currently, I'm trying to catch up on organizing the cemetery photos I've already taken! I love going out there and taking the photos, but organizing them at home... not so much. I am very backed up so I've made it my personal goal that I am not allowed to go out and take more until I've caught up on the ones I've already taken! I'm hoping to get that done before summer, but since I have a new little one, I will just have to do what I can.

Please make sure to look at my pages for any new cemeteries being added! Thanks!

A transcription done at Tri-County Genealogy & History by Joyce M. Tice lists the above age in brackets, however, the first number looks like a "1" so I'm unsure if this information is correct.
