Documenting a Memorial
We are developing a database and mobile application that will allow users to search whether a given memorial has been recorded. If it has not, users will be able to add a new record or furnish additional information to entries that are incomplete.
In the meantime, you are invited to check whether we have gathered information about a memorial by browsing this map by state.
If a memorial has not been documented, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and provide us with as much of the information listed below as possible.
The inventory seeks to compile extensive physical, historical, and preservation-related information on every memorial. Not all information will be available for all memorials, but the goal is to make the inventory as exhaustive as possible. This hoped-for information includes:
--physical address, including county and zip code
--brief description of location (e.g., in a building; on the green; courthouse lawn, etc.)
Inscriptions (all text on a memorial, including names)
--dates of creation/dedication
--has the memorial been relocated?
--good, fair, poor
--brief description of condition
--who is responsible for upkeep?
--contact information for responsible party
