I received this e-mail, and thought I would pass it on for anyone who might be interested. I still have an old Tracfone that is from the dark ages! If you are more phone savvy and technologically advanced, you might want to check this out:
I've been following your Woodcock Valley blog, and since we're both passionate about genealogy, I am excited to share with you a new project we've been working on the past year. You may have read about it on some other genealogy blogs lately, but if not, the name of the service is RestingSpot and it uses the GPS technology in smartphones to help people locate RestingSpots in cemeteries. Once marked via the mobile app (iphone or android), they are linked to RestingSpot.com online memorials for users to share memories, pay respects and post photos of loved ones.
We really want you to use it and let us know what you think and how it helps you. Whatever feedback you have, positive or negative, would be most welcome.
The (free) iPhone app is available right now for download here: http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/restingspot/id455237705?mt=8
Android app will be available shortly.
Project RestingSpot is our goal to map every RestingSpot in the United States by Memorial Day 2013. We're looking for team leaders and volunteers to help us achieve something that's never been done before. We'd love you to join us!
Also, please join our Twitter or Facebook pages to be updated on new features, etc.

Also, don't worry if a cemetery is not currently in the database. The service will still work just fine. Simply mark a RestingSpot in that cemetery, and shoot us an email and we'll add the cemetery to the database.
We look forward to hearing from you,
Brett Atlas & Scott Kroeger"
Again, I don't know anything about this project and am not associated in any way. I'm just passing on the info to others who might be interested.
