Volunteer to Photograph or Transcribe Headstones

TheGenealogist is running a project to photograph and transcribe churchyards from around the world. We are building the most comprehensive record of headstones for family research, and helping to preserve the memories these fragile stones provide.


A Breath of Fresh Air

Enjoy the outdoor life, genealogy or photography? Join our project and photograph headstones in your area.

We are looking for volunteers to take the pictures and transcribe the records.

Earn Credits to Spend on Family History

With every stone photographed or transcribed, you will be earning credits to spend against subscriptions at TheGenealogist.co.uk or products at GenealogySupplies.com.
