Are you joining the Find A Grave Community Day?

Ancestry.com announced they are having a Find A Grave Community Day on Saturday, October 18, 2014. Are you joining in on the fun?

Their website (link here) states, "Do your part for history. Help preserve your local cemetery."


How do you participate in this Global Cemetery Meetup?


1. Sign in to your Find A Grave account (or sign up to become a member).
2. Review a list of local cemeteries for your county, and look for those that need photos or have photo requests outstanding.
3. Visit their Meetup Site (link here), choose a cemetery to visit on October 18th, and spread the news about this special event.
4. Grab a friend and a camera and go!

Be sure to use the hashtag #FGDay to post your pictures and videos to Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter!


Sounds like fun, doesn't it?


Today I am looking at my local cemeteries and am making a list of those I will be visiting. I will grab my camera and head out!
