Click on title to read the information pertaining to the "Gravestone Photo Project" including an open letter detailing reasons why this project is not being expanded beyond its current status and capabilities.
Listed on this website are the following states that have gravestone photo projects, including Ohio:
"The following states are currently using a version of the Gravestone Photo Project software":
New Jersey Civil War Gravestones
New Mexico Gravestones
New York Gravestones
North Dakota Gravestones
South Dakota Gravestones
While "Ohiogravestones.org" does not contain nearly the number of graves as "Find A Grave," it is a valuable source because a gravestone photo is always provided.
The negatives connected to "Ohiogravetones.org" are the inability to post information on burials that do not have markers, and the need for a short wait before your photograph and its information are posted on the site because that is done by a county administrator.
However, recently I learned the birth and death dates of couple from seeing that information on their gravestone photograph posted on "Ohiogravestones.org."
There was no memorial for the people on "Find A Grave."
Currently, Ohiogravestones has over 131,000 gravestone photos which include 209 new photos uploaded within the past week, per the website.
I hope Ohiogravestones.org continues and grows because it is nice that it is an advertisement-free site -- no annoying pop up advertisments to disturb your reading.
