|Recently I have started tracing my family tree, and in searching for the burial locations for my ancestors my family and I have found a fun and enjoyable hobby. My nine year old daughter views it as a treasure hunt. She even wants her own camera so she can take pictures by herself instead of using/sharing mine. Now as we go through towns she asks if there are any cemeteries that we need to stop at.|
My favorite "treasure" that we have found was by accident. While searching through a rather large cemetery for a distant relative we found my grandfather. He had been killed in a car accident two weeks before my mother was born. I never knew when, how or where he died until I started tracing my family, and no-one was left who could remember where he was buried. At first when I saw the headstone I thought it was my uncle, as he was a junior, but I just kept looking at the date and knew that it wasn't right. Finally it dawned on me who he was.
I hope everyone out there is having just as much fun as we are. Good luck in your treasure hunting.

Thank you for sharing all those obits for the West Side Cemetery. I have added all except for the one for Edwin Steiger. Do you happen to know the newspaper and date it was extracted from?
Wow! You have been a tremendous blessing in helping me to re-connect my family. I am so thankful for all of your efforts!
|Lisa Winner Haas||your grandfather|
Love the story about your grandfather! I have a similiar story with my g-g-grandmother, even found her maiden name. Researching is just so interesting.
Catherine is indeed here, as well as several other Coyles. I don't know if they are related.
