Here's a nice addition to the "Find a Grave" site! I have added this search box to the bottom of each page. As of today, I have been a contributor to the site for 1 year, 5 months and 24 days. Although it is a grave registration site, as opposed to an official genealogy site, it is a great resource and rated #3 last year for best genealogy sites.
Not all of my contributions are for my own family. Since I love cemeteries, I often visit my local cemeteries to fulfill photo requests for others. I have requested photos of family members who are buried farther than I can get too, and many of those requests have been fulfilled.
Just for fun, I set up "virtual" cemeteries where I can gather burials in one place. For instance, I set up a site where I am collecting all
descendants of James Dickinson Bradley
. I can then easily see which photo's I need to get.
You might think that I have "too much time on my hands!" But I do it for fun!
