À propos de BillionGraves


Notre but

Notre but est de préserver des dossiers précieux trouvés dans les cimetières du monde entier. Nous utilisons une technologie moderne pour capter des photos de pierres tombales avec leurs coordonnées GPS de sorte que les usagers du monde entier peuvent avec accès à ces données n'importe où. BillionGraves espère faire justement ça : préserver au moins un milliard de sépultures. Et nous n'arrêtons pas là !

Nous POUVONS atteindre ce but. Si seulement 100 000 de nos usagers transféraient 10 000 photos (environ 850 photos par mois pendant un an), nous atteindrions facilement ce but. Avec seulement quelques sorties à votre cimetière local chaque mois, VOUS pouvez facilement rendre ces dossiers accessibles à ces personnes qui cherchent leurs proches.

Joignez notre effort mondial et voyez comment BillionGraves est addictif.


Voici l'équipe de BillionGraves

Hudson Gunn: Chief Executive Officer

Hudson has served as the President of BillionGraves since 2012 before serving as the CEO in May 2017. Prior to joining BillionGraves, Hudson founded other technology companies such as Code_IT Barcodes, My Legacy Memorial, and Wildtrax Outdoors. Since 2012, he has been an Entrepreneur in Residence, adjunct professor and consultant to small technology businesses throughout Utah. In 2011, He was awarded the Utah Valley Student Entrepreneur of the Year and Best Small Business. Hudson holds a Bachelors from Utah Valley University in Business, Entrepreneurship, and Technology Commercialization.

Hudson says: "Preserving the world's cemeteries and making them readily available to promote collaborative genealogical work is a fascinating and rewarding challenge!"

Brian Moncur: Chief (Geek) Technology Officer

Brian has been working on BillionGraves since the beginning. He is a graduate of Brigham Young University and has an extensive background in software design and development. He was the CTO for Fonix (a speech recognition company) as well as for AppTime, the original developer of BillionGraves. In his spare time he loves mountain biking, rock climbing/canyoneering and talking technology with his three sons who all had a hand in the creation of BillionGraves.

Brian says: "If headstones could talk I'm sure that they would have a lot of stories to tell. Since they can't, BillionGraves is the next best thing. Those stories are quickly fading away so we need to capture them ASAP!"

Tom Hester: Quality Assurance

Tom has been with BillionGraves since its beginnings at AppTime and is an avid BillionGraves-er. His Bachelor’s degree is in Political science with a minor in Computer Science and he is pursuing a MBA in Technology Management. Originally from California, Tom loves physical exercise, the beach, and surfing.

Tom says: "Watching BillionGraves develop and grow has been such a wonderful experience. The countless hours put into the development of BillionGraves has made me not only love it but develop a deep loyalty to it."

Casey Moncur: Senior Mobile/Web Developer

Casey was one of the original developers of the BillionGraves project, and is joining up with us again after taking time to finish up his Computer Science degree at Brigham Young University. He is excited to bring fresh ideas to the table and supercharge the BillionGraves movement with simple, beautiful design. His free time is usually spent with family, in the mountains, or reading.

Casey says: "It is so much fun to be able to work on something that has real, lasting meaning behind it."

Melyssa Stratton-Webb: National Director of Record Acquisition

Melyssa Stratton-Webb has been working as a volunteer with Billiongraves for a few years. She learned about BillionGraves while restoring abandoned cemeteries in Northern Virginia and saw it as a great addition to her preservation work. Melyssa is an avid Genealogist and when she is not crawling through brambles and woods looking for lost cemeteries, she can be found in small town historic societies doing research. Melyssa graduated from George Mason University and has a BA in Medieval and Renaissance Literature. In her spare time she loves to travel with her husband Ken.

Melyssa says: "I saw BillionGraves as a great way to expand the restoration of these forgotten cemeteries. Not only can we physically restore the sites, but we now can preserve the location and records of each headstone with BillionGraves. What a wonderful way to give back to our ancestors."

Anna Young: User Support Extraordinaire

Anna Young has been an enthusiastic user of BillionGraves from its inception. She graduated from Utah State University in Elementary Education with an emphasis in history. She has been an avid genealogist for over 25 years, spending many of those years as a family history consultant, as this is her passion. When not buried in old records and archives, she enjoys gardening, hiking, and traveling.

Anna says: "My desire to ensure that my ancestors are not forgotten has taken me all over the United States. As an avid genealogist, cemetery records can hold valuable information to help in our search to “know”. BillionGraves provides the mechanism for this to happen."
