Hi there!

My name is Cheri - I just joined this group about 6 weeks ago and contacted the founder of the group as to why no meetups were happening. So he made me a co-organizer in hopes that we could get this group going again.

If you're a member of Ancestry.com as I am, you have probably seen that this weekend is "Find-A-Grave Community Days" where they are asking genealogy volunteers to find cemeteries on their community that have outstanding headstone photo requests and use this weekend to mobilize and go to these places to take photos.

I thought this would be a great way to start up this group again. We could narrow down to a total of say 5 cemeteries and divide up the requests at each place. Since it's all weekend, we could pick a 3 hour block on Saturday and a 3 hour block on Sunday so more folks would have a chance to participate.

Please go to this link and find out more:

We could take a poll of those interested in going as to where you live so we can do these as centrally as possible.

Since I'm new to this group too, and I've never organized a meet up, please help me out with this! Anyone who would like to suggest a good way to do this, please do!

Thanks!

Cheri
