Application makes it possible to search and display cemetery and burial information.
Application makes it possible for Volunteers to "Give Back" by contributing family history resources to be used by others.
Collect photos of the headstones in your local cemetery with our iPhone or Android camera applications. Then upload the mapped-out photos here. Transcribe information from uploaded headstone photos - then descendants everywhere can easily search for their ancestors. Search for your ancestors' graves using our easy search. You can access their headstone records, photos of headstones, and accurate locations of all the graves. 

Try it out! One more thing you can do with your iPhone! (or Android)
