Tombstones

My mother just sent me an article about a Tampa Bay man installing a tombstone for his great great grandfather.

I'm currently saving up for tombstones for a bunch of my ancestors.  Right they have temporary funeral home markers that I purchased off ebay with laminated placards that I made.

I even have 16 blank flat markers that I was given from a local monument dealer that went out of business. I'm saving up to have those engraved for aunts/uncles/cousins who don't have a stone.

That's a great idea! Have you always found it pretty straightforward to know exactly where their plot is?

Andy,
They had a map :)

I have it narrowed down to about 16 feet (4 for sally, 4 for dan, 4 for baby, and 4 for no one) and kinda stuck it in the area where you can see hers, her sister, and her father if you stand by her dad's...
