Questions I get regarding registration and
How do I register?
How do I go about transcribing a cemetery?
The original idea behind the Tombstone
Transcription Project was to record and put online all available records for all
People do different things depending on
their available time, how involved they want to be and just what is important to
them. It also depends on the size of the cemetery. Some cemeteries are so large
there just is no way to transcribe the data so maybe you can do lookups and or
take photos. Very close to me is the world’s largest in use cemetery with
about 1,400 acres and almost 500,000 burials.
Some people are not able to walk the
cemeteries to do transcriptions but are able to do individual look-ups. Some
people walk the cemetery and transcribe everything on the tombstone; others just
record names and dates. Sometimes we get lucky and find a transcription of a
cemetery at the library that we can copy or a local genealogical society may
have a transcription and will give permission to put that info on the web.
You just need to check out the situation.
How do I send the transcription?
That's easy you just attach your data to the email you send me.
What format do I use?
date format is preferred but not manditory:
