Ready to begin?  We think you will enjoy working on this project and want you to feel comfortable with the equipment and methods involved.  To help you gain a better understanding of the tasks involved, we've divided the tasks into four main divisions: GPS, Plot, Photograph, and Transcribe.  Links to each division are in the red column to your right. 

"GPS" refers to Global Positioning Satellite.  You will use a hand-held device to obtain an exact location for the cemetery & tombstones.

"Plot" refers to mapping the cemetery.

"Photograph" provides tips for taking photographs of the cemetery & tombstones.

"Transcribe" refers to written and electronic records you will create based on the inscriptions on the tombstones.

Always feel free to ask your mentor or Donald Dunaway any questions you might have.  Also use the "E-mail" link in the right column to suggest additions and improvements for the electronic resources provided in this WebQuest.
