I have been working on my family genealogy for over 20 years. I have a passion for history, genealogy, vintage photos, and old cemeteries.
I owe a debt of gratitude to many of my relatives who have helped me locate and photograph our ancestor's headstones. I have very special memories of visiting remote cemeteries with my parents, sisters, nieces, aunts, cousins, and grandmothers. In my childhood I can remember my father taking us camping, and always stopping at the local "Boot Hill," where we would walk through and read the epitaphs of the old timers.
Finding and documenting the final resting-place of our ancestors is a worthwhile pursuit. It helps us to understand, and preserve our family history, as well as pay our respects to those who have gone before us…those who played an important role in making us who we are today.
I enjoy sharing my research, and photo collections. Find-A-Grave is a wonderful place to do this.
