We are receiving wonderful reports about your work.  Keep it up!  Now is the time to grab your graph paper and draw a map of the cemetery including any roads, paths, or landmarks.  After locating these key components, start mapping the tombstones.  Accuracy is important.  Measure distances--at least between rows when rows exist.  Don't worry about overflowing your paper.  When you get back to a computer, you can redraw your map using the Draw toolbar in Microsoft Word.  Display the "grid" and you've got on-screen graph paper.  See Sample. Also go to http://inman.surnameweb.org/ cemetery/cemetery_mapping.htm for tips and examples.
