A Dead People Search Engine: On this page I recommend a good website where you can find dead people - ancestors. But first, some basic info.
Cemetery records can be good to find if the person has deceased.
And graves can be located, although it is a bit time consuming.
I know someone who spent many hours at an old graveyard looking for his relative's grave, but just couldn't find it.
He will be going back there again to continue searching and I really hope he finds it as it seems important to him.
You can find US cemetery records on most genealogy websites.
So, here is a neat international search engine for dead people: www.sysoon.com
The company is from France but with offices in the US and in other places too.
It is always interesting to investigate your family's past and to find
out more about your ancestors. Maybe you could even write a book about
it and then give it to your children and grand children. What a nice
gift that would be!

Paul Newman told me that his grandmother's aunt moved from Sweden to the US in the 1940's. There she got married to a man named Bill Saaf and they had three children. One child from Bill's first marriage was also included in the family.
Edith was the oldest of the three children. She was always very interested in the roots of the family and she came to visit Paul's family in Stockholm in the 1970s. During that trip they also visited a cousin in Wales who Paul also has lost contact with.
His grandmother and Edith wrote letters to each other quite frequently up until the early 80s.
In 1982 Edits family moved from Texas all the way to Connecticut and that is when the letters and Christmas cards stopped coming.
Paul's grandmother never tried to do anything to find out what happened, but that's ok because now Paul is going to do something about it himself. He told me that he will try to find out as much as possible about his relatives and he hopes for the best. Way to go, Paul!
