Cemetery Visits
When going to a cemetery, be prepared for anything.  You might need to clean stones, remove vegetation, or contend with the weather all to capture a good photo and document the headstone information.  To ensure you have what you need, read the article, “Cemetery Visit Supplies and To Do List” by Karla Gerdes on pages 16 & 17 of the CCGS Quarterly Volume 36, Number 1.
