PLEASE COME AND BRING A FRIEND!



FIND A GRAVE and the APP too!

Our next meeting will be October 4th and we will be discussing findagrave.com . Most of you all know and may even have accounts on findagrave.com . For those that do not, we will be doing a quick review. 

Find a Grave's mission is to find, record and present final disposition information from around the world as a virtual cemetery experience. Find a Grave memorials may contain rich content including pictures, biographies and more specific information. Members can leave remembrances via 'virtual flowers' on the memorials they visit, completing the virtual cemetery experience. . (findagrave.com FAQ)

We will also explore the findagrave app for smart phones and discuss how to get the most out of it. 

We will take what we learn from this class to have a field trip for our November class in a cemetery that needs to be added to findagrave.com . The location of the cemetery is TBA. 

I hope to see you all on October 4th. 

Meanwhile, don't forget to check out the second annual Find A Grave Community Day! If you participate, you can use what you learn about the app in our class at the community event! Click the link here:
