From Sweden, born in 1956. A father of 4, with music as a main occupation. I have had this interest in graves and where they are located as long as I can remember. I encountered Find-a-grave on the Internet almost by accident and visit the site frequently ever since. And one of my hobbies have become writing bios and filing famous persons for the FAG. The cemeteries I prefer to visit, are Norra Begravningsplatsen (Northern Cemetery) in Stockholm and Östra kyrkogården (Eastern Cemetery) in Gothenburg, but the most beautiful one is probably Djursholms begravningsplats, near Stockholm. It is really unique and worth a visit.

Hans Alser Hello Peter. The cemetery "St Sigfrids Kyrkogård" is not correct. The correct name should be "St Sigfrids Griftegård" - I added a new with correct name - please change Hans Alsér to the right one instead. Thank you!
Famous or not. Peter, I totally agree with you. It seems that unless you were a coach in the U.S. Little League or a minor politician in South Dakota they are not interested. My reason for asking you is that I was thinking about creating a record for Photo/Journalist Rory PECK who was killed in crossfire during the Russian (YELTSIN) uprising. He is buried near me and I have photos of his burial place. But I may now rethink.
Martin Adler. Hi Peter, Would you consider putting Martin forward into the "Famous" category. I remember him doing work for UK television, and was well known. Someone who puts himself into dangerous areas to bring us the news at first hand should be always remembered. Regards Bob DENNIS
