Cemetery Walks

Olive Tree Genealogy YouTube Channel has many online Cemetery Walk videos for all to view freely.

What are Cemetery Walks? They are photographs of gravestones in cemeteries, converted to a video.

My husband and I stop at cemeteries whenever we can. We then photograph as many tombstones as possible. Sometimes we can photograph an entire cemetery. Sometimes we can only take pictures of part of the cemetery. We always try to return to finish a cemetery if we can.

We also welcome submissions from other genealogists and researchers. In fact Olive Tree Genealogy's October and November 2011 Genealogy Challenges were for readers to donate 15 minutes of their time and go photograph as many tombstones as they could in a local cemetery!

If you would like to participate in this project to bring as many cemetery photographs online as possible, please send your photos to Lorine at olivetreegenealogy@gmail.com  It is easiest if you upload them to a Picasa or Flickr Web Album or into shared cloud storage (such as Dropbox or SugarSync) and send me the link. But you may email photos directly to me if you prefer.
