The final resting places of my family on this earth hold a special place in my heart. There is no feeling to compare to finally finding an ancestor's grave after months or years of searching. When I am standing there I am humbled by the thought that this is where my family gathered together 25,55, or 155 years ago and still we go on. Some say that family is forever. Perhaps that is true. We are only here a short period of time. When I am alone among my departed family members there is a certain comfort I feel that some part of them is present at the moment and that life really never ends.For those active on GEDMATCH my kit number is A222876.
