A non-genealogist may think that family history research is only done with books or maybe computers, but we all know the joys of tramping through cemeteries, searching for that one specific marker to provide the information that we really, really need. We may have to travel hours or days to visit the right burial ground. But if we are lucky, someone may have visited the site and transcribed all of the markers. At one time, this sort of record might be in a volume some enterprising individual or society published, or in a society journal. But now we have the Internet! And The Genealogy Center hosts many of these records on our Free Databases page.
