Documention Grave Markers for Individuals Who Are Still Living
Posted 14 July 2013 - 10:28 PM
I usually use grave markers as documentation for a person's name, birth, death, and burial. And I tend to think of grave markers as primary sources for burials, but usually as secondary sources for the other items.
However, things are often not this simple. In particular, when an individual dies it is not uncommon for a grave marker to be placed both for the deceased and for their still living spouse. For the still living spouse, there will usually be a name and a date of birth on the maker. But sometimes the still living spouse will end up being buried somewhere else. And certainly the presence of a grave marker does not necessarily mean that a person is deceased.
So what are some recommendations on handling grave markers for still living individuals within RM?
