Re: Brillinger's of York PA

In October 2009 I photographed the entire cemetery where Johannis and Catherine Billinger were buried.

I turned the photos over to Kathy Francis of USGenWeb Archives to put them on the site and transcribe them.

As copyright owner of the photographs I took I decided this week to make sure they are all on FindAGrave.

In adding them to FindAGrave I have decided to try to fill in the gaps in Kathy's transcription where possible. She had Johannis and Catherine's surname listed as unknown due to difficulty in reading the stones.

Through Googling a variation of what I thought I was reading I found this post and confirmed that I have the stones of these people.

See:

Or the whole cemetery:

I hope my volunteer efforts help. I'm not related, just trying to save the genealogical planet one step at a time. :)
