Cemetery Kit

Are you ready for a cemetery walk?

Gale's Kit:
  • Cart
  • Crates - for storage or seats
  • Cell phone
  • Camera & memory cards
  • Clipboard
  • Project list or notes
  • Maps - county / cemetery / lots
  • Paper & pens
  • GPS - if your camera doesn't have it
  • Reflector - foil over cardboard
  • First aid items
  • Big stick - for critters
  • Hat & sunglasses
  • Jacket or sweatshirt - for changing seasons
  • Sunscreen
  • Insect spray
  • Small broom & brush*
  • Hand towel & paper towels
  • Trash bags - please pick up trash
  • Baby wipes
  • Gloves - for pulling back briars, brush or limbs
  • Bottled water - wet stones to read
  • Cooler (small) - with drinks & lunch or snacks
  • Lawn chairs - another option vs. the crates for resting or eating
* I use on family stones / lots. Limited use elsewhere.
I used to take a camcorder. My new camera does video so one less thing to take.

Things you won't find in my kit:
  • Clippers or shears (except for immediate family lot care)
  • Chalk, shaving cream, etc - Confession: when I first started my genealogy research I used these suggested techniques I found posted online. No more. A much debated subject in the genealogy community.
