My interest in cemeteries began at an early age. My family lived near Chicago's Graceland Cemetery, and my older sister used to walk me through there in my baby carriage. As a pre-teen living close to Calvary Cemetery in Evanston I'd occasionally visit to tidy up old neglected graves. When I began to research my family in the 1970s locating and photographing their memorials became a priority. The discovery of RAOGK led me to volunteer to take photos for others that were too far away for them to do. And the fantastic, Find A Grave site continues to fuel my interest in adding to their records. It also has turned out to be a great way of making contact and discovering new family members.
