Find A Grave ID


My name is Sharon.

My main reason for getting involved in genealogy was to prove or disprove a family story about my paternal great grandfather. Now, after years of searching, I am wondering who that person was. But on a brighter note, I have found a lot of people that I had no idea they could possibly be related several generations down the road. Which brings me to Find A Grave (FaG).

Find A Grave is a wonderful site to find where those who came before you, can now be found.

A very special Thank You goes out to those who have no qualms about transferring management of memorials to family members, some have gone so far as to transfer memorials to me because I suggested a parent, date of birth or spouse, but I had no intention of asking for a transfer, these people just transferred. However, I have asked for a few transfers because the caretaker did say to let them know if they had other of my family members. Thank you to those.

Thank you to all who have contributed to FaG whether it be 1 memorial or thousands, thank you, thank you, thank you.

Memorial Naming Conventions: Non-famous Memorials

If a hyphen or an apostrophe is part of the name, use the punctuation.
Use a period after names where only an initial is known. If the full name is known, use the full name and not the initial.
Do not use any other punctuation within any Name Field.
Do not use Full capitalization (ALL-CAPS) of names in any

Name Field.
Suffixes and Prefixes do not belong in any Name Field.

First Name
First name of the deceased. Put the entire first name (if known), even if the grave marker is only an initial. Do not include titles or other prefixes in the First Name field.

Middle Name
Middle name of deceased. Put the entire middle name (if known), even if the grave marker is only an initial.

A familiar name of the deceased, if known; the nickname is automatically placed in quotes. A nickname is different from the real name (first or middle).

Maiden Name
Maiden name of a married individual, if known (otherwise leave blank); the maiden name is automatically italicized and is only used if the individual was married and took the spouse's last name as their new last name. If the deceased was never married, then the last name is placed in the "Last Name" field, NOT in the "Maiden Name" field.

Last Name
Last Name as you would find it on the tombstone, if the interred had more than one marriage or other possible spellings please place this information in the bio and use the family links. Do not include honorary or other suffixes in the Last Name field.
