The fever to mosey through cemeteries has always been with me. It is justifiable now that I've found this site.
Other than my own genealogy work, my main interest is finding dusty, hand-typed interment records and posting them here. This addiction began when I bought elderly cemetery records for twenty-five cents at a yard sale. The dates were early 1700's to middle 1800's. That was just too, too exciting--well worth a quarter. Old records discovered in county museums and trustee offices have intrigued me ever since.
Other than my close relatives, I will be delighted to transfer anyone you know. Also, please feel free to copy any of the photos credited to me. Isn't sharing what this is all about??
It will take a few years for me to pay forward the good work others have done for me on this site. I am in gratitude for this community.
P.S. This quote was found on the profile of FAG member 46638065. It is just too good not to share.
"In great deeds something abides. On great fields something stays. Forms change and pass; bodies disappear; but spirits linger, to consecrate ground for the vision place of souls. And reverent men and women from afar, and generations that know us not and that we know not of, heart-drawn to see where and by whom great things were suffered and done for them, shall come to see this deathless field, to ponder and dream, and lo! the shadow of a mighty presence shall wrap them in its bosom, and the power of the vision pass into their souls."--Joshua Chamberlain at Gettysburg, October 3, 1889
