I didn't always enjoy spending time in cemeteries. Genealogy came first. Visits in those early years were to find a specific person, take a photograph for my records and leave. Somewhere along the way that all changed. Cemeteries can offer an afternoon of discovery. There is beauty and art to be found in the old stones and epitaphs.
Here you will find interesting cemeteries and headstones from my cemetery walks. Every stone has a story. And they are waiting to be told.
Thanks for stopping by!
I am excited to have been voted as a Family Tree Magazine Top 40 Genealogy blog for 2011. I love how my blog was described. Thank you for my nomination and votes!
"Every stone has a story. And they are waiting to be told." This is Gale Wall's motto for a blog that shares images of gravestones and cemetery plots, the stories behind them, and thoughts inspired by traipsing through cemeteries. Her posts are informative, inspiring and often poignant. See her Cemetery Bookshelf page for a great list of resources.
