|Forest Hill Cemetery, Derry, New Hampshire|
On Saturday, October 17, there will be meetups at local cemeteries to take photos, videos, tours, and share stories. Your contributions to Find A Grave will be celebrated and shared via social media. At the meetup you can bring friends and family, meet other volunteers and upload photos to the Find A Grave website.
If you aren’t already a member of Find A Grave, consider becoming a photo volunteer and learn how to fulfill photo requests for the Find A Grave website. It is free, and your participation is more than welcome.
Last year in 2014 there were meetups at over 100 cemeteries and over 250,000 photos were contributed.
You can find a meetup at the “Meetup Page” or just head to your favorite cemetery to participate on your own. https://www.facebook.com/FindAGrave/events?_rdr=p&business_id=10152391418841630&ref=page_internal&o_iid=62544&o_lid=62544&o_sch=Web+Property
You can also organize your own Meetup and have it listed on the Meetup Page. See the blog post below for more details on adding your local event to the page.
