Growing up next to a marvelous Jewish Cemetery gave me a love for the peace and park-like quality of a cemetery. When I was in Poland people had family gatherings at the graves on the night before our Halloween - candles, food, levity.
Since the cemeteries I walk are in my home state I know my way around the available sources for information and have access to the online Seattle Times through the local library. In researching my own family I'm always delighted to see an obituary or any other information detailed on a FindAGrave memorial, so I try my best to help others out by adding death records, obits, or any other tidbits. I also connect the graves I enter to their relatives if possible.
