I realized quickly, with the lack of records for my family, that I’d really have to “think outside the box”. I LOVE to interview people, and ask about "the older days" in Mecklenburg. I also study USGS maps, plats, read chanceries, look for long forgotten cemeteries and try help preserve some of those memories people share with me. Feel free to sign my guestbook stating surnames you are looking for, who you're related to etc. Always a work in progress, a work that I truly love!

Point Lookout Confederate Cemetery: all names listed on monument and in book

This post concludes the pictures I took at Point Lookout, Maryland during Mar 2014. See the posts on Mar 16th and Mar 30th, for more info about the cemetery.

I went all the way around the monument. Then photographed the book at the monument. I made sure every row was represented, so the pictures overlap. They are in alphabetical order. If you wish for a picture, tell me which one and I'd be happy to send it to you. I figured not everyone lives very close to Point Lookout so I'd take pictures to share with those who couldn't travel to be there. Below are my pictures done in slide show format. I posted the slide show on you-tube, then imbedded it in my post for higher resolution. You can pause the slide show to view the images better. I took high resolution pictures (abt 17MB each). You can zoom in a lot, on individual pictures, that aren't in the slide show. You can also see quite well on the 7MB JPEGS I took.

My husband found this site. I can tell a lot  of work went into this site! It's searchable by name and has a lot of great information about Point Lookout Cemetery. http://www.plpow.com/POWDead.htm
