Find Burial Records: How Can You Pay Your Respects If You Don’t Know Where To Go?
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

Unless you remain in the same area all your life, you might lose track with relatives and even friends, people that you really did like and enjoy the company of. Sadly, some of them will pass away in your lifetime, some of them far sooner than they ever should.

So, you are planning a trip to the old hometown but you don’t know that you will ever be able to find out where everyone is buried. You have planned the trip for Memorial Day and want to put out flowers for your loved ones, so you have to find burial records so that you know which cemeteries are where you will be heading.

On people search sites or family tree sites, you can find burial records with relative ease. Do you have to pay to search on these sites? On some of the people search sites, the usual answer is no, but there are exceptions. You can make a free profile on the family tree sites and fill out your basic family tree information, however to do more in depth searching such as trying to find burial records you may have to pay for a full membership.

On the people search sites on the other hand, it may be free to find burial records because many of them offer free trial periods with a set number of searches for free- after you reach the end of the trial period time or have gotten to the established number of free searches, you will be asked to pay the membership fee. If you need to continue to do other searches, you can pay the small monthly fee, however if it you only needed to find burial records as a one shot deal, it is not worth the cost to continue.

Many of the people search sites have additional features, including mobile phone apps which lets you find burial records no matter where you are. As an example, you are on a road trip when you find yourself in a small town with a quaint name. A local cemetery catches your interest and you and your road trip pals start discussing a long lost friend who may or may not be buried here. Before you spend an hour or more traipsing around the grave sites, you can use your smart phone and find burial records for that person by name or by the cemetery itself.

While it might seem strange to some, there are many people who like to wander around graveyards, especially the older, small family ones. They might even look online for burial records of people with certain names or who died in certain time periods to make an outing of it. Instead of trying to find burial records by trial and error, especially in several cemeteries, it is easier to use these sites so that you can spend more time putting the flowers on the graves and freaking out when you find a gravestone with your exact name on it.
