NAMES IN STONE has just released new technology that cemeteries are really buzzing about!
Last week, the NAMES IN STONE team released a new product to our cemetery clients that allows them to upload new and updated burial records to the NAMES IN STONE website anytime they wish. This means that cemeteries will be able to continuously make their most current records available to genealogists, family history researchers, and family members all over the world. With this direct update from the books of the cemetery record keepers, the data now found at NAMES IN STONE will be the best and most current cemetery information available.
The process that a cemetery uses to update the website is simple. The cemetery manager logs in through our secure system and answers a few questions--then the automatic system takes care of the rest. The updated data, including photos, is bundled up and shipped through secure services to NAMES IN STONE for processing. To help ensure quality and integrity, the data must pass a variety of validation processes before shipping--and then even more extensive validation upon arrival at NAMES IN STONE. This process will ensure that the information on NAMES IN STONE is uploaded in its original quality.
What does this new utility mean for genealogists and family members? They will have access to current data as kept by those who manage the records at the cemeteries. Now researchers have their hands one step closer to original records from around the world.
Several cemeteries are already taking advantage of this opportunity. In fact, many updated their records within a few hours of receiving the new utility. It's another benefit provided to you by NAMES IN STONE!
