Volunteer cememtery project from home #records


A. E. Jordan
 

Looking for 1 or 2 or 3 volunteers for a cemetery project.
 
In my wonderings I photographed three plots all smaller. What I am proposing is someone to take a plot and transcribe the photos into the JewishGen template.
 
The photos are all digital so I can up load big files and send you the template. You need to be comfortable with Excel spreadsheets and photo files. If you can do the Hebrew that would be great too.
 
It is all from your home and should not be more than a few hours total and you can do it as fast or slow as you want.
 
One plot is105 photos; another is 166 and the third is 165. Some photos are duplicates, etc.
 
I would do it myself but I am still doing cemetery visits while the weather is good and my free time is limited by my current work schedule. With so many people stuck at home I thought someone might enjoy a little project.

I'm not able to read or translate other languages, but this would be a great project for anyone who can.  

I've been taking photos for requests on FindAGrave, and only recently found out how much this might mean to someone. I put in a request myself for photos of headstones in Lodz (Poland) Cemetery. It is not possible for me to take this as I Iive in the USA. It would mean SO much to me if anyone does accept that request and send photos of our family that were murdered during the invasion of their hometown and resulting tragedies.

Please support these types of request. They may seem small in need, but they are so important in research and family answers about ancestry.

Hi, I would be happy to log and translate. I use Irfanview for photos, and have excel.
Looking forward to hearing from you,

Hello Allan,
I am able to help with the cemetery project. I know enough Hebrew to translate headstones and I work daily with spreadsheets.

I would be happy to help with this project.  I'm currently unemployed and have plenty of time.  I'm very familiar with spreadsheets and have done gravestones previously.  My Hebrew is good enough for simple inscriptions and I'm familiar with the Jewishgen "Reading Hebrew Tombstones" web page.

Regards.
