The Louisiana Gravestone Photo Project

I would like to introduce you to The Louisiana Gravestone Photo Project: "The mission of this project is to capture digital images of gravestones of our ancestors. As decades pass -- many stones are becoming harder, if not impossible, to read the inscriptions they originally contained. By archiving the images, we can help save these important records and also assist researchers using this valuable resource."

You may submit your photo, browse for photos by parish, volunteer, or even search for your surname. Currently, they are looking for part-time volunteers to assist in uploading photographs. You may contact them to volunteer from the website URL above.
