Billion Graves

Has anyone found any ancestors yet on Billion Graves? I am impressed by this website. They seek volunteers to take photos of the graves with their Smart Phone app and upload it to Billion Graves. Volunteers at home on their computers complete the transcription and it is now in the index. This covers the whole world! Please consider snapping a few photos the next time you are visiting at graveside and upload. You must have the app already on your device before sending! Billion Graves Link
