Iron Man of Cemetery Transcribers

by SteveFriday, February 24, 2006

Or should I say, "Iron Person"?

Maggie Rail, the editor of Interment.net has personally "walked" and transcribed the tombstones and sexton records of 388 cemeteries, covering several states and countries, including Canada, Australia, and the good ole USA.

About 350 of them have been published either here on Interment.net or on her personal website. The others are still being worked on.

Back in 2000, we published an interview with her.

What makes us Different?

Single-sourced, not crowd-sourced

Each transcription we publish comes from a single-source, be it the cemetery office, government office, church office, archived document, a tombstone transcriber. Other websites already do an excellent job of crowd-sourcing a single cemetery together. But genealogists also need to see the original records from a single source. That's what we offer.
