    It's been very useful in my genealogical research. The gravestones provide good solid evidence, but you may need to verify the subsidiary information offered. I've found that some relationships are inferred and not verified.

    I agree, it is useful, but you must verify. I have found bogus information about my Father, and Grandfather's graves. They stated my Father (who is buried wiwith his mother and father), under separate veteran plaque, info stated he was born in Nova Scotia, and married to his mother, the mixed my grandfather and fathers names up. I tried to send email to make correction, no response, that was about three years ago. Need to check the facts, but you should ALWAYS, verify and validate before you consider your family research is correct, NEVER go by word or mouth, and research what is written with second sources.

    I like it too. It was a quite a moment when I used it to find a photo and the location of the grave site of my great-great grandfather Alfred Dyer.
