Find A Grave’s Community Day on October 18th



Keeping with yesterday’s theme about cemeteries, Find A Grave is having a community day on the 18th of October.  

Cemeteries are an important part of our family history. Your work to fulfill outstanding photo requests and building memorials helps people around the world who cannot visit these cemeteries in person. We know a lot of this is done on an individual basis and we thought it would be great to try and get you together as a group in your local community to meet one another while you do what you love to do.

While we started with a few locations in the USA, we hope to inspire meetups all around the world and expect this list to grow quite large over the coming weeks. These events are all volunteer run and are easy to set up. We hope you will be inspired to host an event in your local town and add it to the list below.

All the instructions on how to create a meetup event or participate in one are provided here.

The website page dedicate to this effort is here.

Might you or a local society host an event where you live?
