Recently I have started tracing my family tree, and in searching for the burial locations for my ancestors my family and I have found a fun and enjoyable hobby. My nine year old daughter views it as a treasure hunt. She even wants her own camera so she can take pictures by herself instead of using/sharing mine. Now as we go through towns she asks if there are any cemeteries that we need to stop at.
My favorite "treasure" that we have found was by accident. While searching through a rather large cemetery for a distant relative we found my grandfather. He had been killed in a car accident two weeks before my mother was born. I never knew when, how or where he died until I started tracing my family, and no-one was left who could remember where he was buried. At first when I saw the headstone I thought it was my uncle, as he was a junior, but I just kept looking at the date and knew that it wasn't right. Finally it dawned on me who he was.
I hope everyone out there is having just as much fun as we are. Good luck in your treasure hunting.
Transfer Memorial Please Would it be agreeable for you to transfer two family member memorials to me 48294342 please. They are my uncle and his wife , William Ferdinand Storm 133704252 and Augusta Storm 133703181. Thank you kindly for your consideration. Bruce Storm
I see that you have taken grave site photos at Immanuel Cemetery East in Greenwood, WI. Currently, Find A Grave has only 211 memorials posted for that cemetery. In your opinion, would you say that 211 is about the total number of burials or is there 500, 1200 or 3,000?
Also any familiarity with Immanuel West? Find A Grave shows 236. Same question about that.
I have been adding photos to the memorials in this cemetery and making edits along the way. I just wanted to touch base with you, since you have added all the memorials. Great job and I really appreciate all your work. Any edits that I add are taken from the stones and then from census, marriage, and death records that I research. I am almost finished with cemetery, and will move on the others that I have photographed this summer, so my edits will trickle to a stop soon. I hope they are not making you crazy. Again, wonderful job of entering the memorials. I really appreciate those who do that. It is a stepping stone to make sure all are remembered. Gail
