September/October/November 2017 We have been uploading hundreds of gravestone photos to the Iowa Gravestone Photo Project - IGPP. They are from the cemeteries in Little Turkey and Union Cemetery in Alta Vista, Our Lady of Mount Carmel Cemetery, Stapleton Township Cemetery, and a few from Greenwood in Nashua.
--Luke and Mary Reicks, Pat Sheridan, and Grace Arens continue to work to perfect the complete spreadsheet of all burials and names on gravestones in Our Lady of Mount Carmel Cemetery in Lawler. We believe that the photos recently uploaded take us very near to 100% of the gravestones. In the process we discovered data errors that are now being corrected.
Ongoing - The county coordinator found a large number of orphan files on the site's server. Many of these are obituaries in JPG form, which are being transcribed and uploaded to the Obituaries pages. The list has been whittled down to 123 files.
