Blogoversary Today

Blogoversary Today
Originally uploaded by midgefrazel
Three years have past since I decided to post the gravestone photos that I had been taking since 2004 and my thought was to share them with others so that I could find other researchers that might share that same ancestor. Clearly, that has happened but what I didn't expect was to join the Genea-bloggers and Graveyard Rabbit groups and find others with this same idea!

Of course, this has been a journey of self-discovery and learning about the gravestones and their carvers. I didn't know that I would feel the need to research each and every stone I photographed! This still surprises me. I feel connected to each person even though they may or may not be related to me in any way.

I find that I am taking photographs this season with the idea of making a presentation about how anyone can locate, photograph and research gravestones. I proudly wear my, "Cemetery Cravings" shirt while I am out gravestone-hopping.

Here's what my cousin, Thomas had to say about today!
"And finally, on Saturday 6 June 2009, Granite In My Blood by Midge Frazel celebrates its 3rd anniversary. Even with new grandson Anthony, Midge always has time for some great posts about her ancestors - stop and pay a visit."
