How to find oldest graves (thanks Mike Maxton!)
1) Begin a new search
2) In the last name field, enter 123.
3) Check the box for "Do partial name search on surname".
(NOTE: What this does is give you ALL last names. But it will time out and never return results unless you greatly narrow the records it will look at. So, we'll narrow it to a state and a county.)
4) Choose BORN BEFORE 1840.
5) Choose DIED AFTER 1400.
These are a little counter-intuitive. The death year after 1400 (you can vary this some, if you like) is EXCLUDING all the unknown death years. But if we just did those death years, we would be looking at hundreds of thousands of records, so we narrow it further by adding BORN BEFORE 1840. If you are looking at a County that is very old, you may want to narrow the search even further by changing to BORN BEFORE 1820 or older.
6) Choose a State and a County. You can't do the complete US or a state, in most cases. Your query will time out before you get any results.
7) Choose order by death date.
If you haven't over-loaded the servers, you'll get a result in about 60 seconds.

RE: Getting famous
no this one was "not famous enough" type of refusal the first time, I've changed the bio about 3 times, if you want to have a go and submit one for him then please do, I think he deserves it and I'm not bothered who gets credit
