Bio

I love to do genealogy on my own family and helping other's with theirs. I have several hobbies and never enough time - 1 hobby being Geocaching which has led me to many cemeteries so I am lucky to be able to combine the 2 - although my wife doesn't always feel the same :o) I find great joy in helping other's by getting photo's for find a grave and giving them that Ah Ha moment! I am researching the following surnames: Carmichael, Chastek (Chvastek), St. Germaine & Taylor families of New York - any info is appreciated :o) ************************************************ THE RECORDING OF A CEMETERY BY THELMA GREENE REAGAN Today we walked where others walked On a lonely, windswept hill; Today we talked where other cried For Loved Ones whose lives are stilled. Today our hearts were touched By graves of tiny babies; Snatched from the arms of loving kin, In the heartbreak of the ages. Today we saw where the grandparents lay In the last sleep of their time; Lying under the trees and clouds - Their beds kissed by the sun and wind. Today we wondered about an unmarked spot; Who lies beneath this hollowed ground? Was it a babe, child, young or old? No indication could be found. Today we saw where Mom and Dad lay. We had been here once before On a day we'd all like to forget, But will remember forever more. Today we recorded for kith and kin The graves of ancestors past; To be preserved for generations hence, A record we hope will last. Cherish it, my friend; preserve it, my friend, For stones sometimes crumble to dust And generations of folks yet to come Will be grateful for your trust. ************************************************ "Show me your cemeteries, and I will tell you what kind of people you have."
