New Gravestone Project

Greetings Arkansas Researchers,
I wouldlike to invite you to check out the Arkansas Gravestone Photo Project
and participate in its growth as it will only grow with everyone's
involvement.

The Arkansasgravestones.org is a wonderful tool to preserve the headstones
of your ancestors. With the advent of time and weather and vandalism, our
headstones are disappearing at an alarming rate. We need to work on
preserving a digital image of our family stones as a fitting tribute to our
ancestors. This site is an easy-to-use site that exists to make this
preservation possible. Additionally there is no cost to the contributor or
to anyone wanting to view the photos, hard to find in this day and age where
everything costs something. Plus this is a great way to have a backup for
all those photos you presently have. There are no annoying ads flashing,
moving or popping.

Particularly valuable are those very old headstone photos that you have in
grandma's photo album. Scan them into your computer and add them to the site
as they may be the only testament to your ancestors life. Share them with
the world.

Arkansasgravestones.org has just come on line. We are presently working to
get it setup and we would invite you to check it out. Also, I am asking for
your help, please add your photos to the site. Every county will have space.


I am your Arkansas State coordinator and I am truly excited about being
involved. If you need help in adding your pictures i will be glad to
help....another great way to save a grave.

If you have any questions, please feel free to email me at
tootied@suddenlink.net to respond to this message. Many of you know me for
my SHARP research. Any one interested in hosting any of the counties i would
like to hear from you. For you information there are 11 more states with the
gravestones.org sites and more are being added.

Thank you very much!
