Being able to assist people in locating relatives or having photos of the grave site is my way of giving back. Recently, I have made an effort to place a flower on veterans memorials honoring their service to our county. When you see a vets memorial, stop a moment and recognize their service with a flower.
So many obits have no burial information leading one to believe all of these people have been cremated. Is this really the case? If you see a memorial I have indicated an incorrect burial, please let me know. Hopefully, as we all walk cemeteries we will find the headstones of those thought to be cremated. By photographing and sharing we can correct the records. Even with vague burial information, what you post will be a valuable asset to others future research.
Because of work done by other Find a Grave contributors, I have closed many gaps in my genealogical searches. If I have posted one of your friends or relatives, please let me know, so I can transfer the memorial to you, ~David
