St. Clair County (IL) Genealogical Society has taken on the rather daunting task of digitizing a fairly large cemetery-- and they’re making tremendous headway:

“The names, death dates, and headstone photographs of over 31,000 interments in Walnut Hill Cemetery 1850 through circa 1992 will appear on this website as a memorial tribute to the men and women buried there. This all-volunteer project is sponsored and funded by the St. Clair County (Illinois) Genealogical Society (SCCGS). SCCGS provides these transcriptions and Website monument images free of charge in fulfillment of one of its purposes: to preserve ancestral data. More indexes, and a search box, appear on the SCCGS Home Page.”
