It is great, but just be aware that some of the people who index cemeteries don't actually walk the area, but instead get the names from funeral home records. As a result, some of the gravestones in the older sections aren't listed on these Internet sites. From personal experience, I know this to be true for Oakwood Cemetery in Whitesboro. Over and over, I searched for some of my ancestors on the Internet site in Grayson county with no luck. Fortunately I'm only 75 miles away, and when we visited the cemetery, we found them. I think it's a great disservice to researchers for the indexers to take the "easy" route and not actually get the information from the gravestones themselves.
