Photography Volunteers will take photographs of the graves to capture as much detail and context as possible.
Mapping Volunteers will work from home, using the data collected by photography volunteers to place markers on our online mapping tool and create a linked entry on findagrave.com, a global index of burials.
Restoration Volunteers will work on-site to remove obstacles which obstruct the view of gravestones such as dirt or vines.
Research Volunteers will work from home on cases where inscriptions provide only partial information, e.g., using partial English inscriptions, translated Hebrew inscriptions, and the context of neighboring graves in order to match burials to records in an online death certificate index or to obituaries in historic newspapers.
All four roles can be done individually, whenever you like. We're also planning a group visit to the cemetery for photography and restoration work on July 10th for at least 10am-1pm (weather permitting).
You can start right away in any of these roles. To participate, please sign up using this form.
