Find A Grave Site Now at 19 Million Grave Records

I noticed over at Find A Grave that they now have 19 million grave records which you can search, in their non-famous grave area (for most of us, those would be where our ancestors are listed!).

When I first starting using this wonderful site over six years ago, I believe they only had about 5 or 6 grave million records. Even a year ago, when I presented a tutorial on using this site to the Eastern Washington Genealogical Society, there were only about 13 million grave records! If you would like a copy of my syllabus from that presentation, please e-mail me (click on “View my complete profile” in the lower right-hand side bar to get my contact information).

  1. Miriam,

    Thank you for bringing attention to this great resource.

    I, however, have never submitted any graves because I must question the future of such submissions. In many cases the best one can expect from such a web site is to be bought by a larger company. My fear would be that any submissions would then become the “property” of that company.

    Don’t say it couldn’t happen…

    Janice
