Records of tombstone inscriptions.
While searching for their own family roots, our volonteers sometimes discover that there is no written record of exactly what persons were buried in a particular cemetery, or where the graves were located.
They undertook the laborious task of going through the cemetery, section by section, row by row, to compile such a listing, thus providing a resource for others searching for their family roots.
Priest, Pope, Rabbi, Minister, Imam? What became of this cousin for whom I found only the birth? Did he become a cloistered monk or a missionary in an African country ? Was he a chaplain ? Did he perharps administer the last rites to a soldier ? So many questions without answers... How is it possible that we find a monk or a nun in our direct ancestry? How can we find information about the priest who baptized, married or buried our ancestors ?
These are the gaps that CulteGenWeb wants to try to fill.

MairesGenWeb Mayors of France through time
MairesGenWeb's ambition is to make available the mayors' list of the French communes.
In order to mark his marriage with Marie Louise, Napoleon 1st took a decree in his Impérial palate of Compiegne (60) on March 25, 1810. This decree, under its Title IV, carries the following provisions: Marriage of 6000 Soldiers. These soldiers were to answer several criteria of which that to be in retirement (military) and to have at least taken part in a campaign. They would be married on April 22, 1810 with girls of their commune, to which it would be granted a dowry of 1200 francs for Paris and 600 for the remainder of the Empire.
MemorialGenWeb aims at building a database of the people who "Died for France" , soldiers from the regular army as well as those who belonged to resistance groups. It will cover the main conflicts where France was involved (the wars of 1870, 1914-18 (WWI), 1939-45 (WWII) and of Algeria.)
Our ancestors travelled a lot, often getting married away from their native lands, provinces and countries. On doing personal researches, or examination of documents, many genealogists manage to single out marriages in which one of the married is a MIGRANT...MIGRANET is an Internet database in which those migrants can be indexed.
The NotairesGenWeb database's mission is denumbering the notaries that exercise or have exercised in France (including overseas territories)
In addition to the name of the notary, one can find the following elements : indications on the place and dates of exercise, presence at the Departmental records, names of the predecessor and successor notaries, and genealogical informations.
Site whose topic is "digital picture and genealogy"... like its mailing list. Technique, advice, selection of sites...and image database
What did become of this cousin, whose for I found only the birth ? How is it that marriage and death of his parents are untraceable? Where and how to look for this information? Who did not find - or will not find - in his direct ancestry a Protestant? Which was it Minister who celebrated this marriage? What is this temple mentioned in the document? Can one Protestant be baptized by a catholic priest? Birth/Wedding/Death Announcements : an underestimated resource. Etc...
It is these gaps which ProtestantsGenWeb wants to try to fill
