Well the effort is appreciated! These pilgrimmages are not for the faint of heart I can tell you. Often the cemetery office is not open on Saturday-so I have finally learned to call ahead and try to get the lot number on a weekday- also visual clues or cemetery street names, sections, etc. A survival pack is good- paper towels, squirt bottle of water, soft brush, disposable camera, bug repellant, small scissors (all this for cleaning stones and cutting growth), bandaids, pencil and notecards (for recording data for filing later), little cold drink cooler (six pack size), hat, sunglasses, sunblock lotion, cell phone, primary camera, and spare batteries. I have all this kit in one small knapsack and it has been a lifesaver over the years. Sometimes the cemetery office will send a Xerox map of the place if you call ahead- Mt. Auburn has a beautiful brochure of the layout. A few places have online websites. It is good exercise- my love of old cemeteries comes from photographing the statuary and doing stone rubbings, which combines nicely with recording Titanic people. Am headed to Achusnet, Massachusetts Saturday to find Ellen Bird. Will also get a photo of her Newport house.
