Michael Coan has created a valuable resource for many genealogists researching ancestry in Illinois or Indiana. He has placed many tombstone photographs online from Vermilion and Champaign counties in Illinois, as well as from other cemeteries in Edgar County, Illinois; Iroquois County, Illinois; Douglas County, Illinois; Ford County, Illinois; Vermillion County, Indiana; and Warren County, Indiana.
A few of the pictures are wide-area shots, showing dozens of tombstones. These give a perspective of the cemetery. The majority of pictures, however, are of individual tombstones. Michael writes on the site: "I have around 400,000 pictures to put up on this site. AGAIN, not all of these are up on this site YET..."
