The Weekly Genealogist Survey
Last week's survey asked about your genealogical experiences with cemeteries. 4,209 people answered the survey. More than one answer could be selected. The results are:
•    43%, I have viewed one or more ancestral gravesites at a cemetery that I visited solely for genealogical purposes.    
•    64%, I have viewed one or more ancestral gravesites at 2 to 9 cemeteries that I visited solely for genealogical purposes.    
•    25%, I have viewed one or more ancestral gravesites at 10 to 19 cemeteries that I visited solely for genealogical purposes.    
•    17%, I have viewed one or more ancestral gravesites at over 20 cemeteries that I visited solely for genealogical purposes.    
•    30%, I have viewed ancestral gravesites in a different country than the one I live in.    
•    13%, I have purchased a gravestone for an ancestor (not including a parent) or other relative.    
•    15%, I have had the gravestone of an ancestor (not including a parent) or other relative repaired or reset.    
•    1%, I have placed a QR code or other technological means of accessing genealogical information on an ancestor's gravestone.    
•    2%, I have encountered a QR code or other technological means of accessing genealogical information on an ancestor's gravestone.    
•    27%, I have photographed and/or transcribed non-family gravestones for Find a Grave, U.S. GenWeb Tombstone Transcription Project, or BillionGraves.    
•    19%, I have photographed and/or transcribed non-family gravestones for another website, a genealogical or historical society, or a cemetery transcription project.
