- Find A Grave ID
About 30 years ago, after a move from the west/mid west to the Philadelphia area, I was asked to try and find some info on a Prough Revolutionary ancestor. Not having ties to the area and friends over 2000 miles away I needed something to fill my days while the family was away at school and work. So I took it on and changed my life forever.
Became facinated with the old tombstones and the history you could find on them. And became aware of how much that info can help someone and that a lot of people just cannot make it to each and every cemetery of their ancestors themselves.
My genealogy friend and cousin Brian Smead introduced me to Find A Grave and I hope to help some one a little in return for all the help I have received through the years.
