Graves

I am wondering if anyone knows how I can find someone to take pictures of old graves in Jaudling, Lower Austria. I have old church records that gives a great deal of information, but I would really love to have a photo of the graves if I can. Any help would be appreciated!

From my experience having lived in Europe and having travelled there frequently, most church yards do not have old grave stones in them. Space is limited and cemetery plots are typically rented long term. If the plot does stay in the family, typically newer people are buried there and newer stones are placed on the spot. I recently visited the cemetery for my great-great grandmother's church in Lower Austria and there wasn't a headstone early than about 1900, even though the church dates back to the 11th century!
