Memorial Day

Every Memorial Day weekend (or sometime close to it) we go visit cemeteries. We've always gone to my mother's parent's graves, but about 15 years ago we decided to see if we could find the graves of some of our other ancestors. It took about 10 years of searching through cemeteries, but we finally found all of my mother's ancestors that live in the US.

I love to visit the cemeteries. They are always beautiful and green in the spring. My children like to see where the ancestors they are named after are buried and the towns where they lived. I've mentioned before that we love family history and visiting the cemeteries is one small part of that.
