The Remember My Journey Map Search is a powerful tool for searching for deceased by Last Name, First Name, Middle Name, Year of Birth, Year of Death and it even allows you to search for Trees and Landmarks. This How to Guide will walk you through the basics of using the Map Search to locate other plot occupants for genealogy purposes.
Navigate to the RMJ Map Search on your cemetery's public website.
There are multiple ways to search for a deceased person, but the easiest way to search is by entering a last name and first initial, or a full first and last name for the person you are looking for. You can also search by birth year or death year by putting "born:" or "died:" before your search.
Hit "Enter" on your keyboard or click the magnifying glass icon to start searching.
Pins and a list of search results will appear. Yellow clusters on the map depict a high concentration of deceased in a small area and prevent the map from being cluttered with pins.
Click on a pin or click on a search result to view more information.
From here, you can view Other Plot Occupants by scrolling down on the search result. To view additional information for the other plot occupants or to get walking directions to their burial site, simply click on their name in the Other Plot Occupants list.
