A little Genea Good

14 Oct

I discovered GenHelper.com earlier today…free registration on the site allows you to submit or answer a genealogical question… Some of the stumpers include search for names, places and other brick walls busters with which folks need some help. Registration was quick and simple and it felt good to help answer a question or two.

If you want to continue that feel good genealogy vibe head on over to Random Acts of Genealogical Kindness (http://www.raogk.org/).    Become part of the global volunteer taskforce to offer your help in research, lookups, record retrieval, or photographing burial sites, cemetaries and tombstones.

FindAGrave.com is always looking for help to upgrade a memorial or to be a photo volunteer.  Register on the site and you’ll receive an email alert when there’s a new photo request in your zip code zone.  Once registered you can help claim and fulfill requests by browsing within a 50 mile radius of a zip code.

Continue your cemetery volunteer adventures with the iPhone or Android app from BillionGraves.com.  The premise at BillionGraves is to photograph and transcribe headstone information.  The app will track your visited cemeteries and collected headstones.
