To clarify, as I understand the article at https://www.esjf-surveys.org/ , this project is about researching the cemeteries' history and documenting their needs for preservation. However, individual burial sites will not be photographed (except perhaps to show current conditions), nor will personal data be extracted from headstones or historical documents. In other words, this is a cemetery project, not a genealogical project. At first I feared they would be duplicating some work already done or in progress by SIGS or research divisions.
