52 Ancestors in 52 Weeks: AT THE CEMETERY

Amy Johnson Crow challenges us to remember our ancestors and their families through this task: 52 Ancestors in 52 Weeks. I completed ’52 Ancestors’ in 2014 & now I am following the 2019 suggestions. This post is in response to that challenge. The topic for this week is AT THE CEMETERY.

I have walked through many cemeteries. There are often beautiful, serene places. They are filled with history and art. It is wonderful to find a relative's memorial. I often find birth or death dates I did not know. Looking all around the memorial I sometimes find other family members. 

It is nice to find a family connection in the real world, not just another digital image. As I stand & photograph the memorial I wonder who else has stood in that spot, grieving for this individual or, like me, learning about this individual. 

Here are links to blog posts about some cemeteries I have visited. I have folder filled with more cemetery photos that I should add to future blog posts.

When you take photographs of a cemetery be sure to add them to Find A Grave
There may be someone else anxious to see those memorials.
