In the BillionGraves.com Blog they made the following statements:
With nearly 6 million headstone records created by over 57,000 volunteers in just two short years, BillionGraves is the trusted resource for accurate and reliable GPS headstone and burial record data on the web. With users in more than 212 different countries, the website is available in over 3 different languages.
Over 12 thousand records are added each day to the BillionGraves network and 4 thousand new registered users join every month. BillionGraves’ mobile GPS tracking technology on their mobile application perpetuates this progress, bringing a wealth of genealogical information right to your fingertips.From my perspective, all of these agreements between the various companies simply makes the records more available to more genealogists.
