BillionGraves’ mission is to preserve the world's cemeteries, one headstone at a time. Using the BillionGraves app, each gravestone is digitally photographed and automatically tagged with an exact GPS location. These records are then made available for free for your family, and millions of other families like yours, for generations to come.
Across the world, cemeteries are being removed to make way for highways and city buildings. Gravestones are deteriorating and erosion is erasing the precious details of our ancestor’s lives. With BillionGraves, even if your loved one’s gravestone is damaged or worn by time, the invaluable information recorded at their final resting place will still be available to your family.
How can you help? Grab your smartphone, download the free BillionGraves app and head out to your nearest cemetery. It's as easy as taking pictures of each grave as you walk along. The app will capture the GPS location automatically and in just a short visit, hundreds of records can be preserved. When you are finished the photos are uploaded - with one click of a button - so everyone can use them for family history and to keep the memories of those you honor and love alive.
