|My ancestor, George Jacobs,|
his gravestone is listed on A Very Grave Matter
with a nice history of George and the graveyard
This is an entirely volunteer effort by Jenn. She doesn’t have a staff, nor scores of volunteers helping her, but over ten years she has documented over 15,000 gravestones across New Hampshire, Massachusetts Maine and Vermont. I can tell you I’ve found dozens of my ancestors in her database, and use it frequently to find information on distant cousins and allied lineages.
However, Jenn is badly in need of new camera equipment to continue her project. When I think of all the gas, time, trips to cemeteries and archives that she has saved me, it is well worthwhile donating to her cause. Just a few bucks, or maybe the cost of a tank of gas would help preserve this project and keep this website going for a few more years.
Please click on http://www.gofundme.com/gravematter to support Jenn Marcelais’s efforts to purchase new camera equipment. There is a running gauge to tell you how close she is to her goal of $1,6000.
