When I am with my husband in the cemetery (I go along with him when he is adding death dates to monuments), I have begun to take pictures of some really interesting monuments to post on our website. His grandmother, Vada Phillips, wrote several genealogy books and I have done genealogy in the past so there’s always been an interest. As we go from cemetery to cemetery, I have started noticing the surnames that keep popping up and that gets me to thinking and I find my genealogy ‘bug” returning!
If anyone out there would like me to ‘look up’ names on monuments in particular cemeteries, I would like to try and help. I could also try to take a picture. We travel to the following counties: Covington, Smith, Simpson, Jeff Davis, Lawrence, Lincoln, Copiah, Hinds, Rankin, Jones, Forrest, Lamar, Pike, Walthall, etc.
