Bio and Links
One of my earliest memories is being pushed for afternoon walks in the grave yard a few doors down (and across the tracks) from our apartment in Glendale, Queens, NY. I was eye level with the gravestones and it was very peaceful.
My family is the from the old school - were you make visits to relatives on a regular basis to remember them - these days its more on holidays and birthdays/death days. I'm trying to continue the custom...Halloween is the perfect Day to visit (started that in 2003). When I am on vacation it is not odd for me to search out famous gravestones. My most touching was my personal pilgrimmages to: Seattle to visit Brandon & Bruce Lee in 1994...and Althorp (England)to visit Diana, Princess of Wales. Jimi Hendrix (also in Seattle) and Christa McAuliffe (stumbled upon her in NH by chance)...amongst many historical graves. It's good for the living to visit graves to remember those whose memories remain behind...still loved.
Now turning to ancestry and finding the graves of family in Scotland.
