You Can Help Rescue Some Underwater Texas Cemeteries

Lee Drew, on his Family History with the LineageKeeper blog, in Call For Genealogy Volunteers ~ Bluffton, TX, describes the need for volunteers to record the grave marker information in two cemeteries that have been underwater for years.

Lee links to a Fox News article, As Drought Continues, Depleted Texas Lakes Expose Ghost Towns, Graves, published on 20 November 2011.

Lee asks "Are there any genealogy and Find-a-grave volunteers in the area who will take the time to inventory these cemeteries and post the information and tombstone photos online and on Find-a-Grave so the data and images are not lost to the world again when the lake levels rise?"
