Have a Local Headstone Professionally Photographed
As the years pass, the headstones of our ancestors become increasingly harder to read and appreciate. At your request, a professional photographer will locate a headstone of your interest and photograph it. This service allows us to preserve the inscriptions and transcriptions of the headstones, while also providing monumental genealogical value to those who cannot travel to visit the site in person. Five professional photographs of the headstone and surrounding area are delivered digitally as high-res images.
