  1. is a website containing a free on-line database of transcriptions from grave markers, intended to be a research tool for use by genealogists and historians. As of 2006, the site was one of the top 15 free genealogy websites on the Internet. The database is limited to information transcribed from grave markers at cemeteries and/or obtained from burial records from the cemetery office. The data includes surname, given name, birth date, birthplace, death date, death place, age, inscription, notes, and sometimes the location of the grave marker. Many of the cemeteries transcribed on the site no longer exist, making the site one of the few sources for those inscriptions.
