Some relatives are more distant than others.

Not that it would interest me personally to find some distant relative's 
grave, but I've been on multiple occassions on with somebody who has been 
looking for a grave of a relative "that is supposed to be somewhere here".
Clearly they didn't known where that relative was buried. Often the search 
even terminates without success because there are simply too many graves 
to look at.
