There is a current project in Jersey Shore, Lycoming County, Pennsylvania, United States that is recording the stones of the original cemetery down on Broad Street. They are currently cleaning, cataloguing, and will be making a memorial of the stones at the current Jersey Shore Cemetery. Efforts will also be put in to have the stones added to the Find A Grave page as well. Be sure to keep an eye out for it in the coming months.

I am less interested in FindAGrave, but I hope the profiles make it here to WikiTree!

Whether the information is added to Findagrave or WikiTree, it will be the same information and just as relevant. And for pioneers to the area, it may be the only information to be found to link families. I get tired of the dismissal of Findagrave when the best information to be found in early central PA and other places is what's available on grave stones where LDS never bothered collecting the church records. My 2 cents.
Hi Amy, when you say "it will be the same information and just as relevant", that is not necessarily true. FindAGrave is all about the virtual cemetery experience, and they do not require sources or other genealogical standards of proof.

But on WikiTree, where sources are one of our main goals, it makes sense that the data will be better displayed and documented here.
