BillionGraves.com is based on using iPhone and iPads with a connection to the Internet to upload photos of gravemarkers as they are taken in the cemetery. It has grown to the point where, if a marker is missing from FindAGrave.com, then you should certainly check for a photo on BillionGraves.com.
Well, in the month of May, 2013, the BillionGraves.com website is promoting a goal to add a million more photos. Here is a explanation of their goal:
The goal is to add a million more images to BillionGraves during the month of May. If only 500 of our users upload 2,000 images this month we can easily reach this! That’s only 65 images per day (only 500 images per week)!From the genealogical standpoint, the more websites gathering information, the merrier. If you have a smartphone with GPS, how about a stroll through a nearby cemetery in May?
With only 500 of our thousands of contributors taking 1-2 trips to their local cemetery each week, we could reach this awesome goal!
