I am a fan of BillionGraves Plus (BG+). I find it’s worth the money, plus you can earn free months by transcribing images or uploading images using the BillionGraves app. About half of the time, I earn free months by transcribing images. I currently pay a bit (think I pay around $25.99 vs. the $22 for this sale) more than the current sale. A friend doesn’t think it’s worth the money.
For me, the Family Notify is one of its best features and a good reason to subscribe. For some uncommon names like Basnight I don’t restrict location, but for other names like Smith I restrict it to county level in a particular state. Nearby Graves is also a good feature as sometimes I find married daughters buried nearby. Family Plots can show you all of the people transcribed with the same surname in the cemetery.
A friend passed me this e-mail from BillionGraves – https://billiongraves.com/:
