I am a homeschooling mother of seven children with an avid interest in history in general and cemeteries in particular.
Burying the dead and praying for the dead are two works of mercy. They are very dear to my heart. My children and I frequently visit local cemeteries to learn about, photograph and record the information about the deceased. Please know that we also pray for the repose of their souls and for comfort and strength for their loved ones.
A headstone for a child, even if it's 150 years old and unrelated to my family, can make me cry.
Find a Grave has been a big help in my search for my ancestors. What a blessing to discover who they are and where they are buried. May your searches be successful, too!
