I have been researching my own, my husband's, and several friend's family history for over 20 years. It has been one of my most enjoyable and rewarding leisure time pursuits. Now that I'm retired I can devote even more time.
Find A Grave has been extremely helpful in many cases where I have literally been met with "dead ends" in search of ancestors who left few breadcrumb trails to find them, and I'm extremely thankful for all the kind assistance I've been given by its devoted participants!
Genealogy is always engaging, sometimes tedious and definitely time-consuming, but I can think of no better way to spend my free time than paying tribute to all the lives who made ours possible. It's a real joy! Thanks to all who make our research so much easier!
