Rose Birdwell and daughter in law Nikki Neblett started this site by looking for Nikkiâ€™s ancestors in Cherokee Co., NC. in 1999. We had a digital camera, so we decided to do every stone in every cemetery that we did, and put it on the internet, so that others would benefit. For awhile, we stayed in just Cherokee Co., but then we started getting requests for other cemeteries in other counties. In two years, we had about 200 cemeteries indexed and online.
Congratulations to this very worthy site! For more information on Megan’s grant program or to submit a candidate, see her Honoring Our AncestorsÂ website.
