On April 18th I posted a blog, 500 by Memorial Day, with my challenge to myself. I was going to photograph and post 500 memorials and pictures from headstones at Woodward Hill Cemetery to Find a Grave by Memorial Day. Did I succeed?
Yes I did!!!
I posted 605 memorials and a total of 850 pictures to Find-A-Grave since April 20th, the day I wrote down the count! Since I can’t find the count I began with on April 18th, I’m using the April 20th date and I accomplished my goal plus! I’m not stopping now I’m on a roll!
This is not only helping Find-a-Grave, but it is helping Lancaster’s Historical Society as well, because I’ve taken one extra step. As I post the headstone, I compare the information on it against the database at the Historical Society to make sure everything agrees. When it does not, the database is changed to reflect the correction. This is a time consuming task, but in the long run everybody benefits.
Now I’m challenging YOU! What are you doing towards preserving our past for the future generations??
