  We are still looking for volunteers to do colored cemetery transcriptions for inclusion here on our site.
  If you would like to submit a cemetery transcription, or need help or guidance with transcribing a cemetery in your area, contact Randall Mason. You will be given full credit for your work on your transcriptions, for the work is yours. We only ask that we be allowed to display the finished work here on our site for other researchers who do not have the convenience of travelling to our county's cemeteries.
