Thousands of volunteers put in countless hours of volunteer time at BillionGraves.com. Some travel across the country and spend their personal vacation time taking pictures of tombstones in remote back woods cemeteries. Others spend time at their computers transcribing information from online tombstone images in an effort to create easy to use indexes. Many ask, “Do my efforts really make a difference? Does anyone even care that I’m doing this?” The answer to these questions is a great big YES!!!
These volunteer efforts really do make a difference in the lives of people throughout the world. They help others who are trying to find lost family members. BillionGraves blogger Liza Moncur shares stories of some who share their time and what a difference their efforts have made.
