The following announcement was written by the International Commission for the Accreditation of Professional Genealogists:
The International Commission for the Accreditation of Professional Genealogists (ICAPGen) has recently announced a new cemetery grant program called “Whispers from the Dust", to help fund cemeteries who want to preserve and modernize their maps and databases.
Imagine making a “virtual” visit to a cemetery with an online map that identifies each grave individually. Imagine clicking on that grave and viewing birth, death, spouse, marriage, and military information along with a headstone photo. Now, imagine zooming out and identifying everyone buried in adjacent graves. Integrated mapping and data will help solve genealogical puzzles that could not be solved with mere headstone transcriptions. Off-site backup of digital records safeguard them for future generations.
This exciting and innovative technology is all part of the “Whispers from the Dust” cemetery grant program.
