The next step is to remember to take some distance shots of the graveyard for the positions of the graves. My digital camera takes clear images that can be brought into an image editing software application so that I can zoom in on the stones in the front and in the back of the image.

I took three shots here, at the end of my visit, right (this photo here), center and left, after determining that the gravestones were purposefully put in rows. I have enlarged each image to be able to print each view out on legal sized paper for me to write notes on.

Notice the wrought iron bench in this cemetery, meant for reflection, that I used to sit down and make sure I had all of the photos I needed before leaving.
