Online cemetery web sites continued

There are three of the popular websites that provide cemetery information submitted by volunteers. These sites are Findagrave.com, Interment.net and Billiongraves.com

Findagrave.com let’s you search for burial locations for both famous and not so famous people. It was founded in 1995 and has over 108 million grave records. You can search by name or by cemetery. Though the emphasis is on the U.S., Findagrave also includes cemeteries from 200 different countries.

When you sign up to be a contributor to Findagrave.com you can post information about your family on the site and also add photos to your entries. In addition, you can volunteer to take photos for other people and post photos to their entries as well.

For more information, go to: www.findagrave.com

Interment.net began in 1997 and is a transcription website. There are no photos attached to any of the records. Contributions of cemetery transcriptions from the public can be sent by email. The staff prefers submissions of complete cemetery records but will accept partial cemetery submissions also.

Interment.net has burial information from all over the United States and from 18 countries. For more information, go to:
www.interment.net.

Billiongraves is a new site begun about 3 years ago. It has just reached the 6 million record mark and includes cemeteries from 37 countries. Satellite images are available for the cemeteries as well as the GPS coordinates.

Using a free app, contributors submit photos of grave markers from their cell phones and then can add the transcription details. You can search the site by name or cemetery.

For more information, go to: billiongraves.com.
