Cemetery: euphemism coined by the early Christian writers. It is a Greek word for dormitory, a place to sleep.

"...passing down memories is the strongest link in the gossamer bridge that binds us as people."
David Baldacci.
-------------------------------------------------
"The life of the dead is placed in the memory of the living." Marcus Tullius Cicero.
-------------------------------------------------
In eternal honor of our ancestors
Who left behind so much,
Who started here with so little,
That we might have everything.
Pax Christi.

Genealogy is the warp on which the fabric of history is woven. It is the most immediate, personal kind of history, and for many the most satisfying kind,rooted in the pervasive values of family and heritage. It is an essential part of the one great task each of us is called upon to undertake----the exploration of who we are.
From the Vesterheim Genealogical Center and Naeseth Library literature. Madison, Wisconsin.

A woman was trying to impress her friends at a party one afternoon. "My family's ancestry is very old." she said. "It dates back to the days of King John of England." Then turning to a woman sitting nearby, she said condescendingly, "How old is your family, my dear?"
"Well," replied the woman with a smile. "I can't really say. all of our family records were lost in the Flood."
-------------------------------------------------
They, who blazed the trail and broke the Virgin soil,
Ne'er garnered half the harvest of their toil;
To-day, wher'er they sowed, others reap
To them is sleep."
their brave deeds and, alas, too often their very names are forgotten.
-------------------------------------------------
""High fortune may be tossed away,
Nor health nor skill my long endure,
Only the name I bear is sure,
And since from it I cannot hide,
Lord, let me hold my name in pride."
-------------------------------------------------
It's hard to understand how a cemetery can raise its burial costs and blame it on the high cost of living.

RE: The Bergs.
And thank you for adding them...
It hadn't occurred to me that people paid to be put in those county histories but I'm not surprised. I'm working on Brown, Door and Kewaunee "county history" books, too. I have run across a few obvious "polished apples" and some big omissions, like not mentioning the divorced first wife with seven kids...
My own family had a wonderful detailed family story of Irish sheep thieves sent to prison in Australia winning their freedom going to Canada getting rich fur trading with Indians and founding a Major University with the proceeds... sinners/penance/redemption/fame... all too easily proved false with good research.
I try not to add 'myths' but I think each family can do their own verifying from these old written accounts and they are worth it if they mention family members who otherwise might not be found.

Sr. Mary Caroline Billand
She was given the name listed above, can't find her after 1930 WI census. I know that they sometimes change their names, that's why I was wondering if Joanne was the same person.

Thank you for your suggestion. Happy hunting!

RE: Anna Amundson
Because I haven't added photos to this site, I'm not sure where to add the photo of Anna, Mrs. Tom Amundson. My father's writing on the back indicates it was a Pine Creek sewing circle circa 1890.
