For anyone with a IPhone or GPS capable Android now's the time to get your moneys worth from your purchase by photographing cemetery monuments in Middlesex. The app is free and easy to use. The time invested is rewarding.

If you don't have any fancy phone gadgets it's also possible to form teams where you can help clear debris from monuments making it easier to photograph.

If you don't live in Middlesex please consider volunteering in your community.

BillionGraves.com provides a GPS location for each monument photographed making is quite easy to locate these stones.

Many Middlesex cemeteries have been completely photographed already.

I realize that, Billion Graves has GPS positioning for each monument that pinpoints it's location on a map of the cemetery. This can be useful. ;-)

I will second .. Talbotrail .. this site is also trying to put all Canadian cemeteries on line .. and I have done one or two for them. Billiongraves may be very good I am not sure ... but I am 59 and don't seem to change all that quick ... as of yet I do not own a cell-phone .. what cemeteries I have done (for this site) are done with a regular digital camera .. then zip filing them onto send- space .. and then to Ontario Genweb ... and it took me long enough to figure out how to do that.

Whatever. I was just making an announcement about another research source. It may be of interest to other readers.

The attached screenshot is an example of the GPS pinpointing. The cemetery is in Ohio but the example is true for all cemeteries.
