Old Damaged Tombstones
We would like to invite you to post pictures of old tombstones, from
your family files, that have been damaged or destroyed since you took
the photo. Sharing them with others who may never have seen the stone
of their great grandad and saving them for posterity is our goal.
However, you may find that doing so will connect you with other
researchers; perhaps cousins you have never met.
We would appreciate your sending them in "JPEG" or "TIFF" format, along
with a brief description of the family as you know it and the cemetery
in which you found the stone. Send your submissions to us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Please indicate "tombstone attachment" in the subject line of your
