Find a grave

I just wanted to give a shout-out to a website that I really enjoy. If you’re interested in family history/genealogy, you’ll also like it. Users can upload information about interments at cemeteries, including obituaries, pictures, and even virtual memorials.

I first discovered this site about seven years ago and created pages for my grandparents and other family members. When I went back to enter information about my mother who recently passed away, I was surprised to find another user had already done so and had included her obituary. I had some information to add, so I contacted the user and he updated her page immediately. If you find that a family member’s listing isn’t being maintained, you can request that listing be transferred to you.
