BillionGraves will ALWAYS be a free service. Our primary goal is and will always be to make records found in cemeteries readily available to people everywhere. We will ensure this by leaving both our website AND mobile app free of charge.BillionGraves is a relative newcomer compared to the rapidly growing FindAGrave.com website. Currently FindAGrave.com states that they have over 92 million grave records. BillionGraves does not have such a claim on their website, but on FamilySearch.org, BillionGraves has nearly 2.5 million entries listed in the Index. Both of these resources are extremely valuable for genealogical research.
BillionGraves states that:
We are improving our partnership with FamilySearch. Our developers are improving automated methods of connecting BillionGraves records to those at FamilySearch. Very soon, users will have the ability to look up a person on FamilySearch and see the BillionGraves records attached to that person. This will include the reverse as well: users will be able to link BillionGraves records to people found in FamilySearch.My family has been doing a BillionGraves.com project at the Mesa (Arizona) City Cemetery for my Grandson's Eagle project. So far, they have photographed more than 18,000 graves. The quality of the photos from smartphones and iPads is surprisingly good and they are now organizing a transcription effort.
