The mission of this project is to capture digital images and the complete transcription of headstones of
our ancestors. As decades pass, it is becoming harder - if not impossible - to read the inscriptions these stones originally contained. By archiving the images and transcriptions, these important records are saved.
This Headstone Photo Project is a non-profit
organization. Success of the Project depends completely upon the activities of many volunteers and other individuals who contribute photographs to the archive.
Help save history for future generations!

The Headstone Photo Project would be an excellent project for your genealogy or history group. It could also become a church congregational project to create a permanent, updatable, searchable photographic record of your cemetery. Now, you may
submit the transcription from a headstone without having a photo! OR you
can submit the photo of a cemetery entrance/sign! Click Here for Details.
