The website billiongraves.com is attempting to photograph and index a billion sites from the world’s cemeteries to provide an expansive family history database, all tagged with GPS locations.
The video below explains how they are asking for your help to collect and transcribe headstone images.
A group of 120 people tried it the other day and indexed about 12,000 images from the Murray Cemetery in one day.
What do you think of this idea? Do you intend to participate? I’d be interested in your comments–just post below.
