We grew up visiting cemeteries in the 60's & 70's with our dad (Ralph Jones). We would go to them while on vacation. We had many picnics in cemeteries. I have passed this along to my children!
After my father died, I "inherited" all of his genealogy records and have been putting them on the computer. He researched: Crissey, Merz, Love, Langworthy, Burchard, Warren, Scofield, Lyon, Butterfield, Dodson, Walker, Moore, Jones, Peterson, Anderson, Lundahl - to name a few. He loved helping people solve a mystery. He would really have enjoyed this.
I have added my husband's family to my on going research: Childs, Wilcox, Scofield - to name a few.
I enjoy taking photos and like the "Scavenger Hunt" as I walk through the cemetery to look for the tombstones. I recently introduced one of my nieces to taking photos in cemeteries and searching for graves. As a photographer, she may have gotten the bug to do find-a-grave :) She became fascinated with the art work and shadows as well as the names! I hope to take my other nieces and nephews with me to get the next generation to care about cemeteries.
