Find A Grave

Find A Grave, Web site review, Al Paulson
One summer morning in the past, as the sun rose over the storied spires and arches of Paris, I sat on the grave of rock legend Jim Morrison and drank a beer. It wasn't an act of desecration, but an act of homage and reverence. And, were I the type to throw an empty beer can in a random direction, that can could have easily landed on the grave of Chopin, or Bizet, or Marcel Proust, for that matter. I relate this story for the benefit of anyone who has ever sought out the final resting place of someone famous. Now you need look no further than www.findagrave.com, where you can search a database of more than 2,599,000 entries by name, location, claim to fame, or date. Many results come with photos and maps. But this site is not just for the rich and famous and deceased, it also allows you to search for relatives and create virtual memorials.
