Sadly, Tom Mathias has passed away. Please consider visiting their Find A Grave memorial page and leaving some virtual flowers. Their enthusiasm for cemeteries and willingness to help future generations lives on through their contributions to Find A Grave.
For the past few years I have been traveling a lot for work. I have always been interested in genealogy and whenever I drive past a cemetery I wonder if I'm related to anyone buried there. Of course the answer is going to be no for most of them. I think about how many people are there and maybe nobody alive remembers them or knows that they are there. Sometimes I have thought I should go in and find out who's there, especially at small, out of the way ones that are no longer maintained.
Now I have joined Find A Grave and maybe one of these days I will go wild on one of those. For now I am just taking a few requested photos here and there at local cemeteries.
