Cemetery Photography

Cemeteries are a treasure trove of genealogical information. Unfortunately, they are often vandalized and desecrated randomly. The weather and time wreak havoc on the valuable information contained on the stones. For those reasons, one of our initiatives is to start a team of volunteers who will help photograph the cemeteries in our nine county area. If you are interested in helping with this project please let us know! You do not need any special training or ability. A few simple pointers and a digital camera are all you need to be of help. We can work with you to assign a specific cemetery near where you live or work, work in a group or by yourself and arrange to get the pictures from you as well. There is no specific time commitment - work on it as much or as little as you would like. Any and all help is greatly appreciated.
