Will Facebook become a resource of obituaries for future genealogists? It seems that about 8000 Facebook members die every day. After the recent loss of a friend, Russ Hearl began to wonder what happens to Facebook users' profiles?
Hearl decided that Facebook was indeed the right place: the place where many people have lived most of their online lives. He founded Evertalk. As of today the Facebook app has been live on Facebook for about four weeks, and users have created 3,000 memorials.
