When ever I have the opportunity to stroll in my hometown cemetery, I do.
I grew up in Phillips, Wisconsin. I have family buried at the St. Patrick's Cemetery and the Lakeside Cemetery. My father's side of the family is buried at the St. Patrick's Cemetery.
I enjoy reading the names of my family, some I never met.
I enjoy looking at other family plots that I know and grew up with.
Taking time to remember, and think about family and friends.
After my boys leave the nest (which is getting closer than I like) I would like to dig into researching our ancestry.
Have you studied your ancestry or had a family member?
How did you go about it?
Did you use Ancestry.com?
I would love any tips that you learned while digging into your ancestry.
Do you have a memory of walking in a cemetery?
Touring Gettysburg, Pennsylvania.
Touring Concord, Massachusetts.
And many more historical places in the United States. Taking time to remember is important.
