Fabulous Find-A-Grave






Becky over at Grace and Glory recently blogged about discovering a website called Find-A-Grave . I thought everyone knew about this exceptionally useful website. According to my profile member page at Find -A-Grave, I have been a member for 2 years and 10 months.

Find- A- Grave, founded by Jim Tipton, is an online database of seventeen million cemetery and burial records. With millions of names and photos, it is an invaluable tool for the genealogist and family history buff.

How much does it cost to become a member and use Find A Grave? Nothing. Find A Grave is completely FREE! They do not charge anything for any of their services. You can become a member, create a memorial, submit data, add flowers, add photos and search the database at no charge.

I've used the site for about a year and have found some wonderful information about relatives in places I can't visit (maybe someday). I just recently "joined" and started to upload some pictures. It's been of great help to me, so I decided to return the favor by sharing my finds.

SHERI,

Thanks for mentioning and linking to this wonderful resource available and for noting that it is free! So much of the work of family historians and volunteers in genealogical studies has been locked away in "for profit" organizations. Those services, like the work of The Association of Graveyard Rabbits, which remain free to all are to be commended.

I LOVE Find a grave too. When I have a breakthough with genealogy, the first thing I do is check Find a Grave and look for all my new family members. I can waste hours "playing" with find a grave!!!
