Tombstone rubbing is one way to preserve the information chiseled on grave markers, but it can be destructive to the stones if done improperly or haphazardly. An alternative is digital photography. Editing a cemetery marker using Photoshop (or some other graphics software) can bring out details difficult to discern with the naked eye, particularly if the image is inverted (i.e., a negative image) or sharpened with other filtering options.
Everyone enjoyed investigating and learning to preserve burial information for one's genealogical researches. Cemeteries tell many stories, if one quietly and respectfully listens.
