Request a Headstone Photo from BillionGraves, the website to document and geo-locate headstones around the world, has adopted a project to give users of the program the ability to request headstone photos in cemeteries from around the world.

The idea is that enter requests for cemetery photos in the website and then have the option of accepting cemetery requests from other users. Here is a closer look at one of the outstanding requests in this area:

You can request an entire cemetery or a single headstone. The advantage of the website is that each photo of a headstone is located with attached GPS coordinates, making it much easier to find the grave in the context of a very large cemetery.
