What is Find A Grave?
Find A Grave is a place on the internet to look for burial and other final disposition information for people of interest. The site provides tools that let people from around the world work together, share information and build an online, virtual cemetery experience. Here you’ll find details about cemeteries and individual memorials for many people buried in those cemeteries, which generally include birth, death and burial information. Some may include pictures, biographies, family information and more. Members can contribute what they know and can leave remembrances via ‘virtual flowers’ on the memorials they visit, completing the virtual cemetery experience.
