A new iPhone app has been produced for Find A Grave. This is a Find A Grave by Ancestry App, and it does some pretty cool stuff. The App is produced in the following languages: English, Arabic, Bokmål, Norwegian, Catalan, Czech, Danish, Dutch, Finnish, French, German, Greek, Hebrew, Hungarian, Indonesian, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Malay, Polish, Portuguese, Romanian, Russian, Simplified Chinese, Slovak, Spanish, Swedish, Thai, Traditional Chinese, Turkish, and Vietnamese.
More than 100 million graves in half a million cemeteries around the world are now at your fingertips with the new mobile app. The App requires iOS 7.0 or later. It is compatible with iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. The app is optimized for iPhone 5. They say that an Android App is on the way.
From the App, you can search for memorials, and search for cemeteries. Using your location, can can see what cemeteries are nearby, and in many cases you can even ascertain what headstones need to be photographed – either on request, or just to complete the database.
I wanted to actually get away and fulfill some photo requests at a cemetery nearby, but just haven’t had the time to get down there yet… Maybe this weekend…
