For frequent viewers who want to keep from searching the whole site this is a listing of items recently added to the C.S. Navy site.  (You'll probably want to bookmark this page) 

Search tip: Looking for something in particular? This works on most computers to find any name/word on this or any  page. On your keyboard, hold down the 'control' (Ctrl) key and also at the same time press the 'F' key. A search box will pop up and you can type in the word(s) you are searching for on that page. The box will stay up and you click the 'Find Next' key to move down the page until the end.  
 Using one word gets better results as the match must be exact (such as Florida, not CSS Florida). Try several variations.
Many gravesites and other site images added beginning 21 February 2002 will have GPS (Global Position Satellite) co-ordinates in DD.DDDD (decimal) as we have found these to be accurate, especially when used with topo maps from Topozone.com, Maptech.com (we have found them  more accurate but harder to use), or Mapquest.com (GPS can also be used for street maps at their site). In time we hope to have the GPS positions on all graves and other sites we personally photograph and visit.
**NEW** Beginning 1 July 2003 we began using GPS with the WAAS system for better accuracy.
