Frequently asked questions (FAQs)

What is the gravestone photographic resource project (GPR)?

The gravestone photographic resource project is an attempt to provide a much needed on-line genealogical resource for family historians.

The project aims are as follows:

  1. to digitally photograph grave monuments that are currently legible
  2. to extract all legible personal information (name, age, date of birth, date of death, relationship) from each image
  3. to publish all legible personal information on an internet database and make this data freely available
  4. to make available copies of any grave monument image free of charge to anyone requesting a copy
  5. to lodge at appropriate public record offices collections of images appropriate to that area
  6. to encourage local groups to maintain, photograph and record grave monuments
  7. to cover cemeteries throughout the world
  8. to form partnerships with other organisations or persons that hold grave monument photographs
