F is for Find A Grave

Find A Grave {findagrave.com} is a great resource for burial information and sometimes, if you are one of the lucky ones, you will find information on other family members.  On occasion you will also find a picture of your ancestor {those are my favorite kind of finds.}


This Ray Arthur Hunter's Individual Information screen showing his vital information and his Event/Facts.  Highlighted in yellow and marked with a green arrow is the Find A Grave Event/Fact.

The Find A Grave Event/Fact includes the Memorial#, the date the memorial was added to Find A Grave, and the place of burial. The Notes section includes the information from the memorial.  I also take a screen shot of the page and save that to the Event/Fact.  The memorials can be updated at any time by the person who maintains the memorial and for this reason at the bottom of the information in the Notes section I have an update date and I record the last time I visited the memorial here so I can keep track of changes.

The red box, above, shows what the Find A Grave Event/Fact looks like in the Chronology tab.
Do you use Find A Grave??

On to letter G tomorrow...see you then!
