Over the past ten years, I’ve often been asked how young men working to get their scouting ‘Eagle’ award could use a family history topic for their Eagle project.  My universal answer has been to go to a local cemetery and inventory all of the burials in it.  They should then give a copy of their data to the city and also post it on free websites such as Find-a-grave or the U.S. GenWeb Tombstone Inscription Project

Hopefully on Both!

This morning, I happened across a video of a young man named Brad Jencks from Salt Lake Valley who not only used this idea for his Eagle project, but went far beyond posting the data on the web.  Take 5 minutes out of your day and watch the video he created that chronicles his project at the Bingham Cemetery.

Brad is A+ in my book.

About lineagekeeper

Family history research is a favored avenue of relaxation. It is a Sherlock-like activity that can continue almost anywhere at any time. By leveraging a lifetime involvement in technology, my research efforts have resulted in terabytes of ancestral data, earning me the moniker of Lineagekeeper. And yes - We are all related to Royalty.
