Cemetery Sortie Project: Preserving the Memory of the Deceased

Surveying cemeteries has become a favorite pastime in retirement. Documenting where we've been and what contribution we've made to FindAGrave and historical societies is satisfying. We add memorials, photograph stones and cemeteries, and GPS the location of individual graves.  The I Hunt Dead People team gets plenty of exercise, gets great history lessons, and meets some terrific people (both living and dead) along the way. Where better to keep track of our adventures than in Cemetery Sorties?
