I would like to ask what your policy is for assisting in genealogy research. Joe and Edna Mayer are my grandparents. Edna passes on July 23, 1970, and Joe passed on January 22 1978. Would any pictures of these headstone exist? If not, could you advise the grave location? Thank you Jim Merkel 733 Panoka Place Fond du Lac, WI 54935
