While Far Guy was woodcarving and then napping I took off and went to a couple of cemeteries.
I take photos in two sometimes three cemeteries for Find A Grave. I also transcribe obituaries if I have them. I have a backlog of obits to enter ...a good winter project.
My Aunt Anna's funeral was live streamed on Monday. I wanted to visit her grave...so I did. It was a chilly day.
I worked over in the shady snowy spots last summer. Yesterday I just walked in the non snowy parts.
Pickerel Lake Cemetery
This is a very familiar spot for me....high on the hill...I have come to this spot since I was a little girl. The fence used to be right where I was standing to take this photo....now that area has been cleared for a road and more graves.
I visited a few more graves and then went to a different cemetery close to home. I made yet another list for that cemetery. In my leaving no stone un turned I discovered that an old friend's obit was missing ...so I transcribed that for approval.
The stone gate at Linnell Cemetery
It sounds like the weather is going to be great the rest of the week...I may be able to get a few more photos before winter snows settle in.
One cemetery they say is 94 % photographed but no one is entering new info...so I just wander around until I find new graves or new headstones...people drive by and honk.:) The cemetery on the hill is only 47 % photographed...so it is a real work in progress..it is so far out of the way that no one ever shows up while I am there.
