BillionGraves Saturday RootsTech presentation

NOTE from DearMYRTLE: I barely have time to walk away from my computer with all the news relative to this week's RootsTech 2012 conference in Salt Lake City, Utah.

BillionGraves at RootsTech 2012

Dear BillionGravers,
RootsTech 2012 is coming up this week. If you are lucky enough to be traveling to Salt Lake City for it, you are sure to be inundated with cutting edge information about genealogy and technology.
 
Technology and genealogy come together to teach and learn from each other at this conference. From February 2 to the 4, you will have a chance to learn about the newest family history resources from genealogists and technologists alike. BillionGraves will be there: we’re holding a session titled, Geo-caching for Ancestors: Using Smartphones & GPS to Crowdsource Cemetery Data Collection. We would love for you to come to our presentation.

Saturday, February 4
1:45-2:45 PM
Room 255B, Salt Palace Convention Center, Salt Lake City

You can also stop by our booth anytime during the conference to talk with us and learn more about our cemetery database project.

In conjunction with our RootsTech debut, we've updated the Dashboard to improve your experience on BillionGraves.com. Log in to your account and check out the new features on the Dashboard.

One new feature we’re excited about in particular is the Request Board. From the Request Board, you can Request a Cemetery. This means if there is a cemetery or specific headstones you would like to see documented and included on BillionGraves, you can put out a request. Then, people living in the area of the cemetery can accept the request and visit that cemetery and take pictures for you. You can keep track of the requests you’ve submitted and accepted on the Manage My Requests page.

Go try out these new features! We appreciate your efforts, and we are always working hard to improve your experience with BillionGraves.

Thank you,
The BillionGraves Team
