RT2791 - Cemetery Crowdsourcing

Session Description

Cemeteries are often an invaluable resource for a genealogist: they provide information that might not exist elsewhere and offer family researchers an opportunity to stumble upon new ancestors - sometimes quite literally! The important records found in cemeteries and cemetery offices have never been more readily available than they are at present and, with many community and crowdsourcing movements underway, the number of available records are growing exponentially every day, regardless of where you might live in proximity to them. The advent of the digital age has completely redefined what is possible in terms of genealogical research using cemeteries and cemetery records. Learn how to contribute to these invaluable collections - and learn how to use the most popular graveyard/cemetery websites. We'll explore BillionGraves, FindAGrave, mobile apps, programs and strategies to further your own family history via cemetery research.
