Wayne County Gravestone Photo Project

I invite you to check out a relatively new site, the Ohio Gravestone Photo Project and help with its growth as Wayne County can only grow with everyone's help.

The site, as its called, is a wonderful tool to preserve the headstones of our 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.

The site is an easy-to-use site that exists to make this preservation possible. Additionally there is no cost to the contributor, a difficult thing to find in this day and age where everything costs something. It also can serve as a great backup to all those tombstone pictures you have. Plus there are NO annoying, flashing and popping ads to drive you nuts.

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

The link for Wayne County is:

I am your Wayne County coordinator and I want to help with the project in anyway that I can. I am also a country coordinator for Meigs Co., I received my experience there. I look forward to us making great strides towards growth in the number of pictures online for Wayne County.

If you have any questions, please feel free to email me or respond to this message.

I will be happy to assist you in any way I can.

Thank you very much!
Connie Cotterill Schumaker
Wayne County Coordinator
