Suggestion: Connecting FamilySearch with missionaries/other volunteers for on-the-ground help
I have a friend with Portuguese roots that has become interested in FamilySearch. Not may vital records in FS for Portugal, but I understand they have immaculate cemeteries. We know who his grandparents are and the town where they are likely buried--nothing in find-a-grave, etc. So I contacted the Mission office in Portugal to see if some missionaries might be willing to give on-the-ground service, taking pictures of grave markers in the local cemetery.
It seems like missionaries, and probably many other FamilySearch users might be willing/delighted to perform this kind of on-the-ground service where other sources were not available, and FS could potentially facilitate it. A first quick fix might be to add a page where a user can request help from missionaries on-the ground at their location of interest. These could be routed through the missionary department as "Family History local service referrals".
A more general approach could allow user volunteers to sign up for this kind of assistance in their locale, and have requests routed to them through FamilySearch. This might also by default include local Family History Consultants, etc.
Anyone have a related/better solution?
