Internet Genealogy Magazine is a guide to successful genealogy research using the internet. In their April/May 2009 issue, Lisa A. Alzo explores Names In Stone in an article entitled "Virtual Memorial: Names In Stone".
Lisa says, "The site offers a way to get both large and small cemeteries involved. Larger cemeteries are those with over 200 graves and managed by a public agency such as a city, county, cemetery district, or a private entity, such as a funeral or church. You can also map smaller, volunteer-run cemeteries (less than 200 graves) yourself, and upload the data....This could be a great project for a genealogical or historical society, Scout troop or even a family."
In conclusion, Lisa gives her review of the site: "While Names In Stone is just getting off the ground, the concept appears to have some real potential. Not only does it offer long-distance genealogists the ability to view the burial places of their ancestors, without the expense of having to travel hundreds or even thousands of miles, but it also provides a way to preserve the records of small family cemeteries or cemeteries that might otherwise be forgotten."
