I Can’t Say Enough Nice Things about the Volunteers at www.findagrave.com

Yesterday I received an email from a Kenneth Schaeffer, a volunteer at http://www.findagrave.com   He found my birth mother’s gravestone & posted a photo of it on the findagrave site.

Kenneth Schaeffer has added 3,876 memorials to findagrave and has taken 580 volunteer photos in the Pennsylvania area.

What is Find A Grave?
Find a Grave’s mission is to find, record and present final disposition information from around the world as a virtual cemetery experience.

If you haven’t taken a look at this site, I urge you to do so. It is a great genealogical resource. Plus, if you have photos to add, it will help the future generations with their research. Anyone with a digital camera can check out the photo requests in their area and post a picture.

Thank you Kenneth!
