I love it when I see someone roll up their sleeves and tackle a long neglected cemetery - just because it's the right thing to do.

Some folks in North Little Rock, AR have done that, and are saving the old Thomas Cemetery.

I read the obituaries in my local paper almost every day. In particular, I watch for selected towns - Atkins, Russellville, Pottsville, Arkadelphia, Okolona, Amity...

At least once a week, I find someone in my GEDCOM.

It's gratifying to be able to follow someone from cradle to grave. Even if I didn't know the individual in life, at least some vital details about that person now survive in a way others can search out and find.

I upload my GEDCOM at Rootsweb because as of now, people can search it and read the search results for free.

Now, if I can just find the maiden surnames of a bunch of women...
