Ed Laput & 100 cemeteries

DearREADERS,

Congrats to Ed Laput who has voluntarily digitized gravestones from 100 cemeteries!

See Christine Spencer’s write-up on this in the Middletown (Connecticut) Press who writes “… he wants to make sure that some of these old stones will have a record and a photo before they are either stolen, destroyed or deteriorate from old age and that people in the future will be able to see and have at least a copy of that nonexistent stone.”

Not only is Ed an avid photo-genealogist, he is a Trustee of the Godfrey Memorial Library.

Would that there were more folks like Ed saving our ancestors' tombstones from oblivion.

Happy family tree climbing!
