I am an avid volunteer history researcher - strongly believe in "sharing with others". I have spent many years in both genealogy collections and visiting cemeteries. I will never pass by a cemetery and not think of the thousands of stories going untold. Although other sites might be best for lengthy "histories & family data", a site that only contains a name, DOB, DOD is missing the point of "honoring those who came and left before us". Those posted as "unknown - unknown" are heartbreaking to see.

Many early ancestors were buried in unnamed cemeteries on private land. If the death is recorded and burial was listed as "private land", this means that it is a "known burial". I believe that this site is for finding graves - not finding
(alas) "tombstones". Sadly, many "known headstones" may still contain incorrect data.

I will never be a "numbers person" but do appreciate those of the FAG.com volunteers who attempt to handle more than 100,000 sites. Don't know how you do it.

I know how important it is to bridge the distance between ourselves and our ancestors - anything I can do to help others, I will do.
