The mission of this project is to capture digital images of gravestones, however we are not a grave registration site. As decades pass -- many stones are becoming harder, if not impossible, to read the inscriptions they originally contained.
By archiving the images of both old and new stones, we can help document these important records and also assist researchers using this valuable resource.
