Find a Grave ID


I am retired and when not busy with
family and church matters I spend
my time on family history and genealogy.
I try to visit old graveyards before
others who tend to focus only on their own
family or short change the survey
due to the effort required.
This has been a favorite past time
since 2001, before Findagrave or ancestry.com blossomed

I am closely related to but a few
folks I add listings and photos for.
Obviously I don't know your family history so if you want it added send it in or request a transfer.
I have and support hundreds of thousands of listings and photos on my site and here.
I welcome anyone needing help on this or any other site I support including these two:

Southern Middle Tennessee:

North Middle Alabama:

Notice. These sites were taken down 26 Dec 2017 and not yet restored.

My emphasis is cemetery location, or getting the grave listing into the correct cemetery. Please don't guess at it. I see so many errors on this site regarding that. If you are having problems with location feel free to ask me; I know about where every graveyard is located; and the proper cemetery name in northern Alabama and southern middle Tennessee. In other words I have cemetery books on the following counties and use these as my references:
Maury Co. Tennessee - Giles Co. Tennessee -Lincoln County Tennessee - Marshall Co. Tennessee - Bedford Co. Tennessee - Lawrence Co. Tennessee Madison Co. Alabama Vol 1 & 11 - Limestone Co. Alabama - Bits and pieces on Lawrence Co. Al Colbert Co. Alabama and Lauderdale County Al.
