Find a Grave - Cemetery Research


Cemeteries can be beautiful, peaceful places filled with history. Selecting a final resting place is different for everyone. Many people leave it others to make that final decision, while others put forth a great effort to find the perfect spot. There is no right or wrong way to go about deciding (or not) on a final resting place, but the information on your headstone can prove invaluable for your descendants and family historians.

Putting together a family genealogy can be a time consuming endeavor. Often information has been lost over the years and many times a cemetery headstone will offer those missing bits of history that hold the key to the next step on your family tree.

Findagrave.com will lead you to your favorite celebrity burial site, guide you to funny epitaphs and magnificent monuments and possibly reunite you with long (and permanently) lost family members.

To preform a general search choose "Search 37 million grave records" and enter the relevant information. Entering a last name and location can return many interesting results for those researching family history.

A click on the "Top 50 Contributors" link reveals members who have contributed thousands of memorials. The contributions of these members are what makes this site possible.

Anyone can search the site, but registering (free) offers many other options and services. A registered member can participate by adding information about grave sites, add or request photos and send virtual flowers.

I was shocked when I entered my last name and discovered my grandfathers burial place. Previously I only knew what state he was buried in, not the exact location. By registering (free) I was able to leave virtual flowers and a note.

The ability to search for the grave sites of the famous and infamous is what originally draws many people to FindaGrave.com. The discover of family history will keep you coming back.
