Help us by congratulating our 2024 March grant winner, Digital Enablement for Historic Westminster Cemetery, MD!
With the help of their Hey Westminster grant, as Kristen mentions, “Approximately 6,000 records of graves will be entered into a digital database along with recent historical information about citizens of the community. Digital layers of Civil War battle and burials from an engagement (Corbitt’s Charge), Rev War burials, African American burials and notable local graves will be crafted into tour routes where there are none now. A specific layer of veterans will be created for the nearly 500 graves of vets we have now. Additionally, a website, phone app and genealogical information will be combined for maximum public use online. This will be very useful in honoring the graves of veterans on Memorial Day”

Check out the video that we filmed and produced for Hey Westminster for the March 2024 grant recipient Westminster Cemetery.
