Help save our cemeteries

I am most active with a group called Arkansasgravestones.org. Our mission is to photograph every headstone in all 75 counties of Arkansas. We are all about Arkansas! Every county has a County Coordinator that works to photograph and document all the cemeteries in that county. We went on-line Dec 2007, and now have over 165,000 photos posted on line. The site is open to all and there is no cost to anyone to use the site to upload their pictures.
My question. Will you take a look at our site? http://arkansasgravestones.org/
We could sure use your help. You could upload your photos, or if you want, you can send us your photos, but only if you agree. We would give you full credit and your email would appear with your photos. My desire would be for you to join us in our mission to photograph and document every headstone in Arkansas. We are looking for more volunteers and always need more help. You do not need to live in Arkansas to be a transcriber. We have transcribers in Texas, Tennesse, and Florida.
We have a Google Group site where we exchange information, stories and good ideas. We are also active in saving old, neglected and lost cemeteries. We are all about preserving the History of Arkansas. I am here to answer any questions you might have, I look forward to hearing back from you.
Thank you for your time.
