We've started a tombstone project at Illinois Ancestors http://www.illinoisancestors.org/cemphotos/main.php
This website is designed to allow researchers to add their photos automatically! If you'd like to share your photos with fellow researchers, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org We'll either set up an account for you so that you can add your own photos online or if you prefer you can send me the pictures and I'll put them on for you.
