Your tombstone stands among the rest, Neglected and alone. The name and date are chiseled out, On polished, marble stone. It reaches out to all who care, It is too late to mourn. You did not know that I exist, You died and I was born. Yet each of us are cells of you, In flesh, in blood, in bone. Our blood contracts and beats a pulse, Entirely not our own. Dear Ancestor, the place you filled, One hundred years ago, Spreads out among the ones you left, Who would have loved you so. I wonder if you lived and loved. I wonder if you knew, That someday I would find this spot, and come to visit you. Author Unknown
I've been interested in my ancestry all my life, but I finally started doing something about it in May 2012.
I've discovered some amazing things and appreciate how others work have helped me, so I hope I can help others too.
I wish I had my relatives around to ask them questions and get their memories. Don't wait until it's too late like I did.
Located in Neenah, WI.
PLEASE message me if you want a copy of the pictures I have posted on this site. I have seen them just copied and taken; and I would prefer to be listed as the source. Thank you~
RE: Name Correction I have been doing some work at the Marathon Co. Historical Society and the book is there. So in my down time there I have been entering information from the book. I am not sure if there are any others as at this time I am still working through the book.
Parts are laid out like a map, but most of the book is copies of the Burial Permits that were issued by the county. Most have the funeral home that handled so I was trying to include that information so that if someone is looking for more information they would know who to contact.
I am not related to anyone, just helping out others that may be looking as I need the assistance in other states where my relatives are from. So it is kinda of a "pay it forward" that I am doing.
I am hoping to get back over there this next week and get some more entered in.
