If you do not want to transcribe your photos, then when the pop-up appears during upload, tap NO. The photos will be released to the general public to transcribe. If you live in some areas (US) our computer program will begin transcribing the photos immediately.
Our technical staff has made great strides to ensure that you can transcribe the photos taken with your device. These can either be an automatic transcription method which is the default or a manual transcription method depending on how you would like to do these.
After your photos are uploaded from the app, to manually choose which photos to transcribe do the following:
Step #1 Log in to BillionGraves.com.
Step #2 Click on View My Profile ("My Images" will show up at the top.)
Step #3 Click on the thumbnail photo for the cemetery of your choice. (DO NOT click on the cemetery name or you will be taken to the cemetery page.) This will open up your album of individual photos.
Step #4 Start with the first thumbnail photo of a gravestone. Click on it. *Note: The pencil in the left-hand corner means that the record has not yet been transcribed. No pencil means it has been transcribed. Click on a thumbnail with a pencil.
A transcription window will open with the thumbnail photo you selected.
Step #5 Transcribe the record and click save.
Click on "Save Person", followed by "Done".
Step #6 To stay within your photo album, click on your Album tab at the top of your browser and choose the next photo with pencils. Toggle back and forth between the two tabs to stay within your album.
Repeat. Each time choose a different image with a pencil.
Step #7 Refresh the page to reflect your last transcription. This will remove the pencils in the album, and enable you to see what has been done
