Glenwood Cemetery Sign


Glenwood Cemetery Sign

Medium sized and large cemeteries often are forced to display their rules because of the lack of common sense on the part of people visiting. I am always glad to see this type of information posted. I can tell you that this type of sign works in this place because this cemetery is very well kept.

A LOT of people were in the cemetery for the ceremony on Memorial Day when I took this photo. People probably wondered why I was taking a photo of the signs.

Since the "other" entrance is across the street from my daughter's home, I imagine I will be a frequent visitor to this place. It is "back to back" with a Catholic cemetery which looks just as well kept.

When learning about being a gravestone enthusiast, I read that it is a good idea to take a photo of the sign with the name of the cemetery and a photo of the "instructional sign" if there is one.

Midge,

I have been taking photo's of this type of signs to remind me that the next pictures were from this cemetery. Since I have a GPS enabled cell phone, with camera, I have started to take a photo of the sign with it, to get the GPS information.

When I next visit a large cemetery with ancestors, I will probably take a photo with this camera, again for GPS information for the headstone.

With GeoTagging, now available, I am sure it will help in the future.

Thanks for the reminder.

Russ
