My Grandmother loved researching our family history and traced our lineage as far back as she could. Some branches are more complete than others. I am trying my best to honor her by continuing where she left off. I think about her often as I discover a new link that had her baffled. She would have loved researching online and especially using Find A Grave to view cemeteries that were otherwise inaccessible to her. I feel cheated as she died only 4 days after I was born. I suppose, in a way this effort is something we are doing "together".
Of course this search for family as led me to work on my Dad's side as well.
I appreciate all the time and effort so many people I will never meet have put into helping me locate stones I need to complete my searches.
