      Don't overlook:

      You can enter your ancestor's  or distant relative's name at Google.  Put the name in quotation marks.
           
Seems almost too simple but it works quite often because your ancestor may be listed
            in someone else's lineage at a gen site.

Google

            For current generation surname search:  http://www.whitepages.com/

            For location based queries:  http://boards.ancestry.com/mbexec?htx=main&r=an  
            Many location based gen boards offer help with cemetery and other lookups by volunteers.  
            Some already have transcribed cemeteries in their county.
