Fun and useful summer activity

My wife and I, with our friend Mary, are having a fun time taking photos at a cemetery nearby for an hour or so in the morning and transcribing them later in the day. It’s a great summer activity that gets us out in the beautiful weather doing something productive and interesting.

Some things are good

I’ve been working on my family tree for years. I was excited to find this app. While the cemetery I need is on here. There’s no real easy way to search and some of the uploaded images are very bad with fingers in them taken from weird angles and there’s no way for me to know which images I’ve already looked at on the map. A full list and better images would be very useful. Also away to know what images I’ve already looked at. It’s great having pictures of the grave markers to research and I really hope to be able to utilize this app in my research.

Great experience, but a couple of bugs

I really enjoyed participating in a service project to photograph gravestones. The actual photography was easy. I couldn’t get my selfie stick to work with the app. We had a 5 level mausoleum to photograph, so it was tough to get up over 12 feet to see the top rows. I also had to get help to verify my account, which the tech support was able to do without any complications.
Thank you for this app! I’ll be looking for a way to do this again.
