Veterans at Holy Sepulchre Cem.

I have been adding web pages of veteran’s records since 2001. The last couple of years have been veterans buried in Holy Sepulchre Cemetery. I’m about 80% complete on the records of Holy Sepulchre. As I complete a few sections I create a web page with the data. Some of the records also include maps of the sections. I go to Holy Sepulchre and use their kiosk and get a map from them for each section, too. Then I decide if the map that they have or one in the veteran’s records is better and post that map.

Today I went to the cemetery to get some maps. I input the name of M. Sarsfield Brennan, who my records say was buried in Section One South, lot 11. The kiosk said he was buried in Section 10 South, lot 11. I went to both places and I found Mr. Brennan in Section One (see picture). So the kiosk is wrong.

I didn’t expect that the records on the kiosk would be 100% correct. No extracted records are ever 100%. Not even the original records are perfect as the person recording data can make mistakes. There are probably errors on my web pages of veterans, as I’m not perfect, either. Try to get more than one source for your family facts, if you can, to prove every fact.
