About This Site
My father-in-law died in the Dominican Republic, and my local New Hampshire, U.S.A. newspaper would not run an obituary because they could not contact a funeral home to confirm the death. This alerted me to a need, which I could fill: A website dedicated to obituaries, from funeral homes and the public alike.
I have done a considerable amount of genealogy research on my own lines, so I know how valuable an obituary can be. I also know that some persons object to the placement of advertisements on a memorial.
I figure that the potential market is large, and unlike a cemetery with a limited amount of land to sell, I can keep adding more and more obituaries. Yes, it is definitely a business, and an obituary you submit will attract visitors to my website as long as the site remains active.
As for grave memorial photos, you may copy one onto familysearch.org or ancestry.com to document your genealogy, provided you cite the URL of the web page as your source. Operators of any other genealogy websites, who wish to have their websites added to this list should contact the webmaster.
To assist in finding a person, each individual is on a different page; except that when a gravesite has exactly two persons, both are included on a single page, to minimize duplication of material and to assist in finding somebody by the spouses name. If five persons are buried in a family plot, each has a different page, and all images of the gravesite are displayed on each page, by necessity. This can help you discover other family members. Each image file is on the server only once. Multiple shots are often necessary to reveal details, especially where an inscription is worn.
You may add a hyperlink (<a href=) to any HTML page on this website, including pages with monument images, but you may not deep-link (<img src=) or frame (<iframe src=) any content of this website.
