Restoration and Research Volunteers:
These are the people who volunteer to help out on each project. Research
Volunteers are responsible for collecting as much data as possible about
the project cemetery and the people buried there. Research volunteers
will need to work at the local library and /or County Recorders office
to locate missing records as well as at the cemetery to help with survey
and marker records. Restoration volunteers work at the cemetery to
clear the grounds and remove brush and weeds, cut the grass, repair fences
and grave markers, and fill grave depressions.
Project Volunteer: Each cemetery project will have a Project
Volunteer who will oversee activities at the cemetery and coordinate the
efforts of the Research and Restoration Volunteers.
County Coordinator: The County Coordinator will coordinate
the various projects, maintain the county web site, and assist the other
volunteers as much as possible. The County Coordinator is also responsible
for recruiting Project, Restoration, and Research volunteers for each cemetery
State Coordinator: The State Coordinator will coordinate
the counties, attempt to keep all counties "adopted", maintain the state
web site, and provide resources to aid the County Coordinators. State Coordinator
will also assist in setting up media coverage, when possible.
