Welcome to the Oregon Gravestone Photo Project!
The mission of this project is to capture digital images of gravestones of our ancestors. As decades pass-- many stones are becoming harder, if not impossible, to read the inscriptions they originally contained.
By archiving the images, we can help save these important records and also assist researchers using this valuable resource.
Further information on preparing the photos before uploading can be viewed at Preparing Photos BEFORE Uploading
