Why not volunteer
to help with research in Zimbabwe?
needed to assist people in tracing friends and relations in Zimbabwe.
If you would be interested in becoming a volunteer please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org
or email@example.com giving your
name, e-mail address, what assistance you are able to offer and the
areas you are able to work in (Harare, Bulawayo, Mutare etc)
- photograph volunteer needed:
for some-one who is willing to take photographs in the Byo Cemetery.
person might be requested to do the following:
1. To locate specific graves
from the Records Office at the Byo Athlone Cemetery, being given a set of names,
and dates etc.,
2. To then proceed and find the specific grave/s in question
and photograph them, from at least, for each grave, a close-up view of the headstone,
the full length of the grave, and the grave number marker where possible.
To record on paper, the full details of the grave/s, and full texts of on all
stones etc. on that grave/s. The reason for this is that after photos are printed,
the 'exacts' might not be completely legible etc. A basic hand sketch with ALL
texts recorded with accuracy pertaining to the texts is required.
4. One full
set of the pictures taken should be developed to ensure that all the necessary
pictures taken, are of sufficient quality to be passed on to the person requesting
5. In the case of headstone etc. that might have inscriptions
on several faces, these must all be photographed.
6. Probably in most cases,
2-3 graves might be requested at a time, but would recommend that the rest of
the camera spool should be used up, and as boring as it may seem, to use the remaining
film to re-capture the same angles again, etc., until fully used up.
original spool/s, the single set of prints, and paper transcript/s, must be snail
mailed to the person who has requested such informations. The spool must obviously
be posted in such a way that it will not be damaged!
8. These would be paid
9. I would only be referring persons to such a willing photographer,
and they would have to continue their interests from there themselves.
How payments are made, before or after pictures are taken, etc., would have to
be agreements between those parties.
12. The photographer should preferably
have Email access.
13. Basically I am looking for some-one to whom I can refer
other people who are looking for photos to be taken these Cemeteries.
In the future, other people might also be looking to get photos of Cemeteries
in other centres such as Harare, etc. So let me know...
15. Digital photographs
are also very much accepted.
Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
if you are interested.
Your name and
details will be listed on the lookup page.
