Toll Charges - We should be able to tell you the total toll charges in advance after we plan out the route to the state and cemetery that we are traveling to. We will include this information in our quote back to you. We will also be happy to provide you with any receipts for tolls if you would like them. We can scan copies and have them emailed to you.
* DISCLAIMER - Please note that with this service, there may be times when grave stones are so old, worn, or damaged that the name of the deceased may not be legible. There could also be times when a gravestone may even be missing. We will do our very best to document these instances for you if possible and provide what photos we can to show the detail of our "best guess" as to which stone may be your ancestor's. Usually this scenario comes into play with much older and smaller family cemeteries so we may be able to photograph more than one stone to provide you with a possible match.
