Map the plots at Evergreen Cemetery

Amy George sent in this link to the Evergreen Cemetery interactive map:

This opens the door to everyone with a GPS, iPad, or tablet PC, to help us fill in the blanks in the burial records. We need to preserve the data as it’s in many cases the only record of a person’s life and the tombstone is the only link to the present. John Shuck worked tirelessly to extract these records, and continues to collect photos for Find-A-Grave. Fall and winter is a great time to volunteer at the cemetery – the bugs and poison ivy are gone, and the vegetation dies back so you can get a better look at the beautiful, historic graves.
