    Another source is the Denkmal Projekt (http://www.denkmalprojekt.org/index.htm) which documents (often with photos) town memorials, grave yards, casualty lists, Ehrentafeln, etc., across the world (most entries in Germany and Austria). New entries are added daily. As of late May 2015, they had almost 2.4 million records.
