A STONE GENEALOGY TRAIL seemed the best way to recover, help others and breathe some life into our cemeteries by visiting them ~ thereby 'memorializing' our roots whilst still breathing!
The only truly dead are those who have been forgotten. ~Jewish Proverb
The life of the dead is placed in the memory of the living. - Marcus Tullius Cicero

What I like about Find A Grave{press release}, the tangible stone pictures of interlocking families.
Great website for calculating the birth date from stones listing only death date & age.
Scattering of Cremated Remains..
A romantic notion, a sound choice for some (& it can be), my experience has shown that family can come to regret this decision in later years, as they have lost the opportunity to create a focal point for remembrance.
'Money is like manure,' Brooke Astor, whose net worth was estimated to be more than $103 million, had said. 'It’s not worth a thing unless it’s spread around'
QKL TIME HOW SHORT is Aikens' Motto. Remember life is short - don't hold grudges. Everyone struggles, and no one is perfect. Do what you do with love and kindness. 'PARUM SUFFICIT' - a little is enough ~ is Barraclough's ...so I have both of those covered! ~ ãüröræ UE We have not inherited the earth from our ancestors, merely borrowed it from our children!DAK ~ Life brings tears, smiles, and memories: the tears dry, the smile fades, but the memories live on forever. ~RIP Meredith
FYI • Under the Canadian Protection of Personal Information and Electronic Documents Act (PIPEDA), "a cemetery headstone and any information on it are considered to be in the public domain. Therefore, information obtained from these sources are considered as 'open' information which may be released. This is true regardless of whether or not the people mentioned are living or dead or how long they have been dead."

Thanks to the helpers!
Final words: THIS IS A CEMETERY
Lives are commemorated, deaths are recorded, families are reunited, memories are made tangible and love is undisguised. This is a cemetery.
I must be up and doing, aye, each minute. The grave gives time for rest when we are in it. – W.S. Blunt
Communities accord respect, families bestow reverence, historians seek information and our heritage is thereby enriched.
Testimonies of devotion, pride and remembrance are carved in stone to pay warm tribute to accomplishments and to the life; not death, of a loved one. The cemetery is homeland for family memorials that are a sustaining source of comfort to the living.
A cemetery is a history of people, a perpetual record of yesterday and a sanctuary of peace and quiet today. A cemetery exists because every life is worth loving and remembering, always.
