Find a Grave, service project

After each of our Leadership Training Meetings we have an activity.
One month it may be a soccer or volleyball game, 
and another time we provide different servicesto the community.
This month we participated in a Family History project, 
capturing images in the Mira Flores Cemetery here in Trujillo.
We put all of the images on "Find a Grave", web site, for people around the world who are seeking to find their ancestors. 

First, information was gathered from each grave or crypt.
Then an image was taken to upload onto the
"Find a Grave" web site. 

Every companionship was assigned an area.
We only wish we had have had more time to record every grave marker.
Elder Ricapa, Elder Heward, Elder Welch and Elder Coca.

After taking the pictures and gathering the information we met back at the mission office
to upload the information onto the computers.
While some missionaries worked on uploading, others participated in team building activities.

At the end of the day, all the information about each person, 
their name, birth and death date was recorded and uploaded to 
"Find a Grave"
It was a great service to those who enjoy working on their 
Family History around the world who may have ancestors who once lived here in Trujillo.
