Happy Fourth of July!!!
May it be joyous and safe for everyone.
I hope we can take a few moments today to visit a gravesite, or post a message with a virtual flower on a memorial posted on "Find A Grave" of a loved one, or even a stranger to honor our nation's 235th birthday and celebrate our American Independence.
I have a link (click on title!) to burial records at Union Cemetery in Columbus, Ohio. Thanks to the internet we can virtually 'explore' burial sites even if we are not able to visit them in person.
As with "Find A Grave", we can request gravestone photographs from kind and generous photo volunteers.
More than ever, we now are able to locate where our ancestors were buried.
But, we still need to preservere and protect their gravesites so time, vandalism, weather, and neglect don't steal them from us.
We never take a holiday from caring about them do we.
Thank you for your encouragement and support with this blog, and my best to you and yours to enjoy the 4th of July today!!
