By now you should have discovered it is very difficult, if not impossible to locate burial records of family and loved ones. If you are lucky you will have a date of burial but not much more. Where is the grave? Where is the cemetery? Where can I find out some background information on the deceased?

Find a grave .com is the answer. http://findagrave.com

Go online and type in in the name and other particulars of the person you are looking for. Someone may have already recorded your loved one. You can also search for the cemetery and then look up all the records of the people buried there. The records are not automatically listed. Some one such as yourself must record the information.
Almost fifty million (50,000,000) memorials are already listed. Fifty thousand people a day search these records. Long after we are dead and gone the records you list will be there to help your dependents learn about you. You can post photos of the deceased, photos of the grave markers, along with a biography. As each day goes by the records of the cemeteries in Kittson County are slowly being added to this site. It is your responsibility to see your family is recorded. Children not yet born will appreciate the records you leave

Last week I visited Cavalier Cemetery in Pembina County and photographed seven grave stones in connection with the volunteer photographer group. I also traveled south west from there to Vidalin Luthern Cemetery and photographed more than a dozen graves. In many cases a member of find-a-grave requests photos of a family members headstone or grave marker. Many times the headstone also contains the name of a spouse. In some cases the spouse graves is alongside and I photograph that as well. I have learned that the cemetery in a small rural community will contain many headstones with the same family name. I photograph them as well and then pass that information onto the person requesting the specific grave. In every case I have found the additional family grave photographs appreciated and in many cases they learned for the first time where additional family members were buried. I always find my time and efforts are well spent and appreciated.

Find a Grave is one of the neatest inventions in genealogy.  I took pictures of all the graves in a family cemetery 400 miles from here at Clarkfield, MN. and posted them to Find A Grave.  Since then, we have "met" via e'mail several distant relatives we would never have known if they had not discovered "their graves" posted on Find A Grave
