Find A Grave

One of my goals for this year was to learn more about Find A Grave and to volunteer. So last week I became a member and on Friday afternoon I did my first volunteer experience.  It was a very good experience.  It felt good to help someone.  I am willing to look for gravestones in two of the local cemeteries here in Mesa. 

Friday I left work early and was able to stop by the office of the cemetery and asked for the map.  This is a helpful tool.  The grave I needed was in plot 103.  I walked right past the monument the first time because the names where on the side facing away from me.  I found it on the way back.  I received a nice thank from the requester.

I stll haven't requested my graves yet because I don't know the plot numbers.  I'll do that soon.
