|"Walking, I am listening to a deeper way. Suddenly all of my ancestors are behind me. Be still, they say. Watch and listen. You are the product of the love of thousands." Linda Hogan, Native American Writer|
Within just a few generations, my ancestors have managed to travel to and live in every continent on the planet. Searching for them has been a monumental task and has been aided considerably by the countless volunteers who create and maintain memorials here on Find A Grave. My sincerest gratitude goes out to them. My family are scattered like the seeds of the wind and the volunteers here are everywhere that I wish I could be to see the graves of my fore bearers in person.

You're quite welcome!
If you haven't, there are some interesting stories about how those reburials were accomplished. Yes, along with the fact that many headstones/monuments were used as breakers across the ocean shore, there were attempts to maintain dignity & such during the reinterments. In Joseph Burke's case, the reburial happened 40 years after his death & initial burial. Some were transferred to other cemeteries 50-60 years after their death. I'm wondering how many family descendants were around to be contacted to assume that reburial. Try Googling something like "San Francisco reburials" for insights to that particular activity.

I started tracing our shared ancestors recently. If you'd like to contact me, my email is email@example.com
I'm new to the findagrave sites, so wasn't sure it was sharing my email. Thanks
