Follow Friday: Gravestone Photo Project

I will highlight a website I was just introduced to for this Follow Friday. It is the Gravestone Photo Project. Per the homepage, "The Gravestone Photo Project (GPP) is a PHP software project that was designed to provide a web-based archive of aging gravestone images."

Actually, the software is no longer available for download. But! Several states (23) did so before it was taken off the market. The following southern states are included, and I encourage you to check them out and add them to your research bookmarks:

- Arkansas Gravestones (over 205,200 records)
- Florida Gravestones (over 12,300 records)
- Louisiana Gravestones (over 1,700 records)
- Virginia Gravestones (over 14,900 records)
