Do your ancestors lie in a well-hidden, overgrown or otherwise unrecorded graveyard somewhere? Do you earnestly wish that someone would record the inscriptions in that cemetery? Well, that someone could be YOU! Betty Fink's Genealogy Page contains advice on how to record gravestone inscriptions, ranging from the simple notebook-and-pencil method to digital-camera-and-palmtop-computer technology.

Many times, researchers have expressed an interest in initiating or contributing towards the restoration of derelict cemeteries or the repair of damaged monuments. Now there is a company that offers just this kind of service. They are New York Cemetery Services of 242-22 54th Avenue in Douglaston, NY 11362. The contact is Bill Haines. Bill writes, "New York Cemetery Services contracts with individuals or organizations to maintain old cemeteries that would otherwise not be kept up. We mow, clean up leaves, and trim brush around an agreed area on schedule. If there are stones that need to be cleaned, reset or repaired, we also provide those services by contract. We use only AGS-approved methods and materials. If local history or genealogical organizations want to sponsor a workshop on the correct ways to clean up and repair gravestones, we can arrange this, too. We don't have a website, but we can be contacted by email at [email protected]." New York Cemetery Services is a fee-based, for-profit company which can also be reached by telephone after 7:00 pm at (718) 225-9024.

Technical stuff: In order to make the 93,000 names in our Rensselaer County Cemetery Database accessible to Googlers, we need to insert links on THIS page directly to those database pages. You are welcome, of course, to use these direct links, or, if you prefer, the above initial-letter-based links still work fine.
