It’s compelling research and I’m not done yet, but it’s time to get my nose out of my genealogy records and take a field trip.
While reading an old article about my great-grandfather, I came across the name of the church he attended. The church has a cemetery, so I plan to see if I can find where this great-grandfather and great-grandmother are buried. I’m hoping their headstones include middle names or initials that will aid in further research, which has come to a stalemate with this set of great-grandparents because of their common names.
Just down the road from where I plan to look for my ancestors’ graves is another interesting cemetery. The cemetery is on an island in a very large lake. There is a causeway to the island and the only thing on the island is the cemetery. I find that very interesting. I spotted the island cemetery when I mapped out my field trip.
I’m not much for the adventure of driving the causeway with water so close to me on either side, but my curiosity will get me to the island.
Goodnight is tagging along with me so I’m sure the time will pass quickly and include a lunch stop.
