One thing that you miss out on when you don’t visit a cemetery in person is the actual placement of the graves and this can tell you so much. Who was buried next to whom? Who all are in the same outlined plot? You can really see how families fit together by the way they are buried.
Cemetery surveys, cemetery books and Find a Grave are GREAT but if at all possible, you will want to visit the cemetery yourself to get “the rest of the story.”
