The BillionGraves team is proud to announce that we have reached 12,000,000 million GPS headstone records, and 137,706 users! This is a big milestone in growth of BillonGraves! Thanks to all the contributors around the world! For those of you who prefer to see stats in a pretty little picture, we’ve created this small info graphic for you! 🙂


State_of_Growth_Full_12_MillionEven with the cold weather and holiday season, our contributors are still cranking out millions of records! This time, it only took 66 days for our transcribers to create another million records! With new partnerships and dedicated contributors, we are growing our headstone record database internationally! With 646,000 records coming from the US, that means that nearly 354,000 records are coming from outside the US! That is a huge change for us and a huge advantage to those searching for ancestors overseas!

We want to thank everyone who helped us reach 12,000,000 so quickly! We couldn’t have done it without the wonderful contributors who are visiting and photographing cemeteries throughout the world as well as all those transcribing all those images!
