Information on Becoming a Volunteer

This is a volunteer not for profit project dedicated to putting cemetery information and obituaries online. Our desire, in creating this website, is making this information freely available to help genealogy researchers locate the burial place of their ancestors and family members, to be able to view and download a photo of their headstone and possibly view an obituary.

If you are interested in becoming an area coordinator or would like to assist in creating pages without being a coordinator, please contact Tammie. You do not have to live in Oklahoma to adopt or assist with a county.

If you would like to help code the pages, create a cemetery listing, headstone photo pages or obituary pages, we would love to have you join us.

If you would be interested in just taking headstone photos, but not do the webpages, we would appreciate it. If volunteering to take photos, please contact Tammie or Rex for instructions. Please check the cemetery page to be sure photos have not already been taken.

Some basics about what is needed to become volunteer area coordinator:

It will be your responsibility to contact our trainer when you are available for training and maintain the website for the county you adopt. If you are assisting, you will still need to learn how to do the pages and you will be responsible for creating the pages you have requested to assist with. If you do not know how to do this, Rex will train you. Training can be done via email, instant messaging, online video, Skype or in person depending on location..

FTP is File transfer protocol. It is what allows you to transfer files from your computer to the internet server or from the server to your computer. You will need to download a software program that will allow you to do this.

CORE FTP is a free program that most of us use. It's simple and easy to use.

The pages are done using html coding. {Hypertext Mark-up Language - the code needed for web pages to show up online}.

I use Arachnophilia 4.0, however tech support is no longer available. FYI: I've used it for years and never needed tech support. Arachnophilia 4.0 is a CareWare program.

If you need to do a page for a cemetery listing, you can use a program such as Excel, MSOffice, MSWord or MSWorks spreadsheet or database to create the listing and add the necessary coding for html.

AFTER you have downloaded and installed the necessary FTP & HTML programs, please read the tutorial pages before contacting the trainer. He or she will instruct you on the details needed to access Oklahoma Cemeteries server, creating pages, uploading to server, etc.

When you are ready to start learning, contact our trainer by email.
