I am always pleased to receive cemetery information to post on the Lafayette Parish website. If you have information to send, if
possible, please send it in the following format:
Last Name, First Name, Middle, Birthdate, Death date, any information on the tombstone, including "shares a stone with ..." Please use upper and lower case letters, not all caps. For dates, unless you are sending me the entire cemetery list, please use month, day, year as the format, otherwise I have to retype all of the dates.
Smith, Frederick I., Jul 25, 1880 - Mar 2, 1937, husband of Mary Elizabeth, shares stone with Mary Elizabeth
Smith, Mary Elizabeth, Mar 1, 1881 - Sep 2, 1940, wife of Frederick I., shares stone with Frederick I.
If possible, name the pictures in all lower case letters. Use the initials of the first and middle names. Put last name first. When I match the picture with the names, I can easily find them if last names are first. Most servers will not take files with spaces or punctuation marks in them (Smith, Fred and Mary).
For example: smithfi.jpg
If Fred and Mary share a stone, then name it with both names: smithfime.jpg
Please do not send just pictures. It is very difficult and very time consuming for me to go through each tombstone picture and try
to read names and dates. Please put the written information in the email.
I will resize and crop all the pictures, if needed.
You don't have to alphabetize the list of names.
One last thing --- Please write the name of the cemetery and the parish in the subject line of the email. You'd be
surprised how many parishes have the same names for their cemeteries!
Thanks for your cooperation!
