Find a Grave ID


Very few of the people who have ever lived ever show up in the history books. It is mostly through genealogy and websites like this that they are ever remembered.

While any picture is better than no picture please avoid the temptation to post a picture of a grave marker that isn't better than the picture(s) already on a memorial simply because you took a picture. Pictures that are dark, taken at goofy angles, blurred, too far away, clip the tombstone/inscription or otherwise unreadable don't really help and shouldn't be posted.

Please stop assuming places of birth and death. The Social Security Death Index does not indicate place of death. The place of burial has absolutely nothing to do with the place of birth or death. Where they lived is no guarantee of where they died or where they were born. If you don't actually know then leave it blank.

Please stop assuming burial locations based on death certificates which show for instance Schuylkill Haven as the burial place. It's usually indicating the town rather than specifically the Schuylkill Haven Union Cemetery. Too often they just indicted the town the person was buried in and like Schuylkill Haven and Orwigsburg there are several cemeteries in each town and any one could be their actual burial place.

Please stop suggesting birth dates based on the age at death. They are not allows accurate and depend on how they were originally calculated. I usually only indicate the year of birth for this reason. If the age at death is only accurate to the year I'll indicate the approximate year of birth.

Don't guess or assume because someone else might assume what you post is correct when all you did was guess. Not everything has to be filled in.

Children are linked to the parents, so don't ask me to link parents to the children.
