Catholic Cemeteries updates grave locating app

Catholic Cemeteries Inc. of the Diocese of Wilmington has updated its GPS grave-locating mobile app. Users can search for their loved ones and post to an interactive memorial page to capture the personal histories of those laid to rest in the diocese’s Delaware cemeteries: Gate of Heaven in Dagsboro, Cathedral in Wilmington, and All Saints in Mill Creek. “This initiative involved the cemetery entering thousands of burial records from paper into the database to make this history accessible,” said Mark Christian, executive director of Catholic Cemeteries. “We have seen individual families and the community as a whole benefit from this project and can’t wait to see it grow.” Catholic Cemeteries has been offering a free download titled Wilmington Catholic Cemeteries in the Apple App Store and on Google Play. At the end of January, this app will no longer be active. To download the new free app, go to www.cdow.org/cemeteries.
