Can't Find a Grave? Try FindaGrave.com!
March 24, 2011
I have been using FindaGrave.com for about a year now, and I think it is fantastic. What is FindaGrave? I usually describe it as Facebook for dead people. It is a free website where you can find burial information on your ancestors. I searched just casually for a while and found quite a few family members. Then, since I didn’t find them all, I created a free account and created pages for the rest of my ancestors. Each page lists at minimum where a person is buried, but depending on who posted each page, they can also have birth and death information, relatives, obituaries, and more! There are also many wonderful people who just entered every person in a cemetery voluntarily. After I created my free account, I requested to have my ancestors transferred to my account so that I could add pictures and more detailed info on them. This is a wonderful, FREE website.
