Submission + - Web Cemeteries - Cemeteries Going Online

An anonymous reader writes: Cemeteries are going online with maps of graves and memorial services. Web Cemeteries has several cemeteries already and looks like it'll make searching through multiple cemeteries easy for genealogists and individuals looking for loved ones. It makes sense, since records can be too easily lost in fires or damaged. Also, in China, virtual cemeteries appear replace many aspects of physical cemeteries entirely. With the cheap cost of web space and the ability to add photos, music, video, or any other number of media, the appeal of internet memorials is a growing.
