I am a retired military veteran and a retired law enforcement officer who possesses an endless love of history. Cemeteries are a significant part of that passion, for in them lie the stories, written and unwritten, of my past, our past, our country's past. Together with my wife, we love wandering through old cemeteries, graveyards, and family burial plots, listening to those stories come alive as we read the tombstones of those who have gone on before. For decades, we have both traveled the globe, researching, where we could, the ancestral trails of those people that would eventually lead to her and to me. We are still searching...and if we can help any of you find some of your lost loved ones, then those will be more good days for us. Should we locate your relative or friend, would you do us the favour of a public message of thanks on our volunteer page? We can assure you that your personal words of appreciation really mean a lot, and they more than compensate for the petrol and bug spray we use in our search for your kin.
