BillionGraves offers an app for iOS and Android that cemetery visitors can use to upload gravestone photos and their GPS coordinates to the web. Volunteers can then transcribe the images on the BillionGraves website, making them searchable.
MyHeritage is helping to make the app available in 25 languages and support Gregorian, Julian and Hebrew dates.
Over the coming weeks, MyHeritage users will receive information about how to download the app and participate in this initiative. You can read more about it and see what the app looks like on the MyHeritage blog.
Update: The partners have opened up the website where you can register and get started recording graves.
Researchers will be able to search the gravestone information free on BillionGraves.com (where volunteers have already uploaded millions of gravestone records) and on MyHeritage. Anyone with a MyHeritage family tree will receive free Record Matches to the data.
