Burial Registry, record & GPS each site.

Maintain your County INPCRP page according to the guidelines in the section
Subscribing to the INPCRP-L mail list.
Promoting the local INPCRP efforts through local media and organizations.
Actively seeking volunteers for the cemetery projects. County Coordinators need to be willing to actively promote this project
on a local level and recruit volunteers and volunteer organization to handle
the labor intensive phases of each cemetery project.
Ensuring that each volunteer or volunteer organization is properly recognized
for their efforts.
Providing a copy of the
INPCRP guidelines, instructions, and survey forms
to each Cemetery Project Coordinator. Or share these links.
Helping the State Coordinator keep information as accurate and up-to-date
as possible. (This basically means: tell me when I make a mistake,
please) Also server changes or email changes.
