Craig A. Hughes, a faculty member at CWU, will present "Both Sides of Billiongraves" as our program for Monday, Feb. 2. He describes himself as having an interest in the power of electronic tools in family history.  

(You may remember him as the man who directed the Sparrow Singers 1Dec 2014 as they sang at our dinner when Lee Bates was temporarily unable to appear with the choir.) is like - cemetery graves,
with special emphasis on showing the exact geographical spot in the cemetery; so we see who is buried near whom.

Currently the website has 12 million grave records and that number is doubling about every year or 2. Findagrave. com has 121 million records but is not growing as fast anymore.
