Before you get freaked out by this unusual project, I want you to start your journey at the “Why Such an Unusual Hobby”? section. This is where you will learn why Michael Reed not only maintains this site, but does it as his hobby. You might also want to check out “Who are You”? and the “What is This”? section. All of these are found in the right frame.
What are you going to see here? Well, you’ll see photos of graves from cemeteries. Some of them are famous people who have grand grave sites, while others are little known people who may have made an impact on our world.
There are three ways to search the grave sites. You can search by Name, Category or Location.
Name – Here you can look through the grave sites in alphabetical order of the person’s last name. They are broken into sections. For example, A through E, F through J, etc.
Category – Here you can look at the grave sites by what the person is famous for. For example, activist, educator, inventor, president, etc.
Location – Here you can look at them by location. See if Michael has been to a cemetery near you! And see what famous people are buried there. First you choose from United States or Europe. If you choose the U.S., you can then choose by state. If you choose Europe, you can then choose by country.
I have to agree that this is an excellent way to learn some of our history. I searched by location and found that Woodlawn (a cemetery in Toledo I’ve visited) had two entries. One was for a Postmaster General and the other for a Chief Justice of the U.S. Supreme Court. But if you were to go there, I’d recommend that you drive around until you find the pyramid shaped grave there. It belongs to an educator if I remember correctly and was just very interesting.
I hope you enjoy this eerie project as much as I did!
