"Project Remember is a categorized index of the gravesites of over 5300 Americans and others who left their marks on our culture, ranging from Columbus (d. 1506) to Ansel Adams (d. 1984). This reviewer was hard put to think of any name that did not appear in the excellent index. Burial sites of famous animals, mass burials, and a geographic listing of gravesites expand its usefulness. Each entry contains birth and death dates, profession, a brief biographical note, and burial site, if known. While paper and binding are good, the typography is marred by transposed lines, gaps, and other errata." -- Library Journal.
