Follow Friday: Nebraska Tombstone Photo Project

This week I am pleased to recommend the Nebraska State Genealogical Society Photo Project. It is managed by the Nebraska State Genealogical Society. To date, more than 45,700 gravestone photo records have been added.

The site is free to use and is always in need of volunteers to photograph gravestones in all areas of the state and upload the images to the site. Users can browse the site by cemetery or search by surname. Females are cross-referenced by maiden name, when the name is known.

I would certainly encourage anyone who is a FindAGrave volunteer in Nebraska to also consider adding gravestone photos to People search the 'net in many different ways and it doesn't hurt to have digital images available in both locations. However - please remember to upload only photographs you've taken yourself. Do not "steal" photos from one site to add to another.
