Been doing genealogy for about twenty-five years. Mostly was working on my husband's family until 2006 when my sister died. She was doing our family tree. Now I'm working on both sides and loving it very much. This is a great way to leave a piece of history to our children, and grandchildren. Hubby and I find it very relaxing to take a walk in the cemetery and look at the names and the stones. The older the cemetery the more interesting the stones.
Will response as quickly as I can but be patient as I am taking care of a sick husband and also tend to my father who is 88 yrs old. Going through cemeteries is my relaxation and exercise.

Dear Ancestor: Your tombstone stands amongst the rest, neglected and alone. The name and date are chisled out, on polished marble stone. It reaches out to all who care, it is too late to mourn. In flesh, in blood, in bone, our blood contracts and beats a pulse entirely on our own. Dear Ancestor the place you filled one hundred years ago, spreads out amongst the ones you left, who would have loved you so. I wonder if you lived and loved. I wonder if you knew that someday I would find this spot and come to visit you. Author Unknown
