Obelisks in Cemeteries

Oakland Cemetery, Atlanta, Georgia
   It is best not to overlook the tall tombstones (obelisks) found in cemeteries. Obelisks should be examined for inscriptions. They contain such information as war service and even list the names of the children (and who they married).

Georgia Pioneers  has several cemetery databases available to members, in all about 100,000 names.
