MyHeritage biggest challenge to preserve and digitize cemeteries worldwide

MyHeritage embarked on a very ambitious goal to digitize Israel's largest cemetery, Holon, collaborating with genealogy companies, genealogy organizations, societies and other volunteers who love genealogy. It was their biggest challenge yet, as part of their global initiative to preserve and digitize cemeteries worldwide. It was one of the largest events of its kind ever organized - in the world!

The day was a huge success! Over 150,000 gravestones were photographed. It is a great model for how similar activities can be organized around the world.
