How It Works

Anyone can place up to 3 free markers for loved ones who have passed.  We ask that you put the marker in a place that is special to the loved one or perhaps where they passed.  These markers will be grey with a red heart.  Free markers can be upgraded to biographical markers, which allow more information, a biography, and 2 pictures.  Biographical markers are blue with a red heart, and can also be shared on social media.

The search function allows anyone to search by a variety of search functions. They are name, age, occupation, year of death, cause of death, and place of birth.  Then, visual reports based on these can be compiled.  We hope that this will help raise awareness.
