Find a Grave ID


Born and raised in Troy NY (the home of Uncle Sam), I've always been interested in cemeteries, having grown up practically next door to one of New York State's largest cemeteries - historic Oakwood Cemetery.
There's something about cemeteries that fascinates me. I guess it's just the history...........all those faceless people, asleep forever, with no one left to remember them and nothing to remember them by, save a stone with a name carved in it. It's just so be forgotten.
I'm also interested in genealogy, and once I started working on my family tree, I decided to try to find the final resting places of all my ancestors and enter their names at Find A Grave so that, in some way, they will live on even after their gravestones have crumbled.
Thanks for reading this, and please, if you have a moment, won't you leave a flower on the virtual grave of someone who hasn't any? Remember those who don't have anyone left to remember them............someday it will be you.

“There are three deaths. The first is when the body ceases to function. The second is when the body is consigned to the grave. The third is that moment, sometime in the future, when your name is spoken for the last time.” ― David Eagleman, Sum: Forty Tales from the Afterlives
