Over the last couple of weeks I have snapped over 2,600 photographs of St Oswald’s churchyard. The aim was to capture every grave, unmarked or with a headstone, flower container or kerb. There are 2,148 inscriptions in the East Yorkshire Family History Society’s 2014/15 Survey – my “extras” include stones added in the last five years plus context shots to assist in the creation of an accurate churchyard map.
Processing and matching the photographs to the 1977 Crimlisk and EYFHS Surveys, and drawing the map, will take hundreds of hours over possibly several more lockdowns. I’m hoping the effort will generate some blog posts along the way. Time will tell.
Quote of the Day
We need to increase public understanding of the need for medical countermeasures such as a pan corona virus vaccine. A key driver is the media and the economics will follow the hype. We need to use that hype to our advantage to get to the real issues. Investors will respond if they see profit at the end of the process.
