I love Find A Grave

Many of my family have not yet learned about Find A Grave.  This site honors the memory of our dead ancestors.  It has the capacity to link parents and spouses and as a result you can follow a family across the country, cemetery after cemetery, to where your family lived.  There are good people and organizations who have made a project of documenting the gravesites, adding pictures of the gravestones and putting a memorial on the website.  When you find a grave, you can request that it be transfered to you for maintenance or if you know a person was buried in a particular cemetery, and he has not yet been entered there, you can set up the memorial yourself, add a bio or obit, put up a picture of the person, leave flowers and a note and create a virtual family cemetery.
