I've been doing genealogy research for about 20 years. To date research has mostly been centered around New York and North Carolina. I recently started researching German and Polish ancestors.
Findagrave has been an amazing resource for me and I hope you find the same to be true. I am thankful to all the amazing volunteers that have taken pictures of my family graves and I am excited to be a picture volunteer now as well.
Cemeteries are amazing places. All unique places with stories to tell. I find myself always comparing them to cemeteries in Germany. I have found German cemeteries and graves to be meticulously maintained and frequently visited by family and friends. However, graves are not kept forever, but instead removed after a predetermined amount of time. I am not sure if all German cemeteries follow this practice or just in my region of the country. This certainly makes looking at old graves a bit harder! But luckily they have amazingly detailed town records to make up for it!!
