During this month, be sure to take advantage of these special features. You can read about each of the features of BillionGraves Plus below or you can watch the BillionGraves Plus video to see what you’ll be getting!

  4. Click on the name of the person whose record you want to see.

Record Watches
Get notified by email when a new record is added with a family name and location that matches your criteria. For instance, if you are interested in the Peterson line of your family that lived in Boston, Massachusetts, you could be notified when a new record is added that matches your criteria.

  1. Login to your BillionGraves account.
  2. Go to the Notifications tab on the BillionGraves homepage.
  3. Click on “Create Record Watch.”

  6. Click Save!
  7. When new records are added, a notification will be sent to your email.

Virtual Walkthrough / Nearby Records
Every wonder who was buried nearby a family plot? Now you can find out without leaving home. Just imagine what previously unknown relatives are waiting to be discovered!

    Here’s how you do it:

  1. Login to your BillionGraves account.
  2. Go to a record that you want to “look around.” (Use the Search page or one of your Favorites)
  3. Click on the “Nearby Records” tab at the top of the page.
  4. Nearby records will be listed along the left edge. Click on one to take a closer look!
  5. The map on the right shows the location of the original record and the nearby record that you just clicked on. The orange pin is the original record and the bouncing blue pin is where the nearby record is located.
  6. To view the detailed page for nearby records, click on the blue name below the image box.

Thanks again for your participation and dedication! We love you!
