I just discovered it. From the looks of it I have a lot of family that came from Missouri. I traced family back to 1800. That was their date of birth. I came from some large families so chances are I have a lot of ancestors from there.
My Great grandmother and Great grandfather were in a Tornado. They lost a 3 year old son and papa was injured pretty bad. They made their way to California and then Oregon. Might be related to some of you. Pretty interesting site. Have any of you looked on it? They have a place to leave a flower and a note. I met a 80 year old lady that new my great grandparents.
I have sent her a few messages.

By the way my great great grandmother went by Ollie! It's even on her headstone.

I have connected with some distant relatives on findagrave, it's a great website, we update our cemetery and take requested
photos in our area. It gives us an excuse to go motorcycle riding!

"Find A Grave" is one of the best tools a genealogist could ask for. I'm still surprised so many don't know about it. Information that took me years to find is now right there in front of me.

I have posted over 19,000 photos to FindAGrave. I have always liked exploring cemeteries - the older the better. It has become an obsession, or perhaps an illness.

I come from Williamson, Smith and Carroll which are all pretty common names. On find a grave the Carroll side is pretty well documented. Seems some went back to Illinois.

My other hobby other than tractors is genealogy and I use findagrave.com extensively although I find our generation is going away from traditional burial in a cemetery, several are choosing cremation and then
have their ashes scattered on some favorite recreational spot.

We have some the ancestry.com DNA test to trace out a couple of family lines that had little documentation and some hearsay records . Worked rather well.

Years ago we got unasked for a book in mail that was supposed to be family history. And they had none of it correct. Don't believe any of them, thet make it all up.

I use it daily to research my family and friends. I paid for a subscription and volunteer to take grave photos for people too far away to see local graves for themselves.
