It pays to have someone to share in your cemetery trips, whether it be near or far. What I wear to the cemetery is not as chic as having shirts like these but they surely get us a lot of looks when we are at Target or the coffee shop. I find that having a sense of humor about what I do helps me cope with the real work that is cemetery research. Trips to the cemetery are the fun part and I spend a lot of time in the preparation and a lot of time afterwards doing more research on what I find.
Hubs is my boneyard buddy. He drives, he carries the cemetery kit and he looks closely at the gravestones I might miss. He sees things I don't. He takes photos of me with my ancestor's gravestones. He makes sure that I don't fall. Best of all, he takes me out for an iced coffee when i've had enough. Get a boneyard buddy.
