Genealogy to me has always been about trying to connect people with their ancestors and extended families. I have done over a dozen full family trees for others. The longest took over 5 years to complete. Each was a labor of love for no monetary pay.
I know there are two, (and more), schools of thought on what FindaGrave is. On opposite ends of the spectrum = a gravesite repository of dates, locations and gravestone & cemetery photos only. The other end = a family tree research tool- with biographical information, personal photos and family stories and recollections.
I am an obsessed believer in the latter.
I am also a believer that one person can make a huge difference if they have compassion for the younger, the older, the poorer and the weaker people (and animals) in every society, and can muster the guts and/or resources to help.
