If you are like me and take loads and loads of photos, often at several (sometimes many) cemeteries on one day, it could be easy to mis-identify a gravestone’s location.
So what I do—and this may be what you do too—is take a photo of the cemetery sign as soon as I arrive, which places a visual cue on my digital camera roll: Here begins ABC Cemetery.
This simple technique works great...most of the time.
Today I arrived at Armstrong Cemetery to discover that this tiny cemetery in rural Morrow County has no sign.
Hmm. How do I record the cemetery’s name before I start snapping gravestone photos?
Smart phone and Google Maps to the rescue!
I pulled up Google Maps, which had guided me to Armstrong to begin with, and touched the red pin that marked the cemetery to display the place name. Then I simply saved an image of the screen to the camera roll.
Here begins Armstrong Cemetery.
