Fred Kuplicki and about 40 Volunteers to Document about 9,000 Headstones in an east-side Detroit Cemetery

Fred Kuplicki is nearing the completion of a 23-year-old project, in conjunction with the Polish Genealogical Society of Michigan, to uncover, identify and compile a digital, photographic database of burials at the cemetery. He and about 40 volunteers are bringing their digital camera/phones to the cemetery to photograph about 9,000 headstones dating to the cemetery’s founding circa 1889. His meticulous research during that time, aided by a few other volunteers, has helped to recover lost records for burials spanning to the late 1880s.

You can read the details in an article by Patricia Montemurri in the LSJ web site at http://goo.gl/2iZcks.

Wouldn’t YOUR genealogy society like to undertake a similar project to benefit other genealogists?
