- Billion Graves - www.billiongraves.com A worldwide site with goal of photo-documenting (with GPS location) as many graves as possible, through volunteer photographers and transcriptionists.
- FindAGrave - www.findAgrave.com Find A Grave's mission is to find, record and present final disposition information from around the world as a virtual cemetery experience. In other words, memorials of graves with biographies, photos of headstones and often, photos of the deceased left by family members or friends. What makes this site even more special is that you can add virtual flowers and a personal note for the deceased. On more than one occasion I requested photos of family graves that I am no longer able to visit, because of living so far away. This brought unexpected comfort, to see the graves were being well tended and cared for in my absence.
- US GENWEB - http://ncgenweb.us/nc/mecklenburg/ - part of a worldwide volunteer genealogy / history site that offers multiple cemetery record sources for Mecklenburg county.
