Tombstone Tuesday: Abraham Hyde

Sometimes it is fun to report on successful cemetery adventures, so I thought I'd show you this photo and how I arrived at this gravestone.

Last week, I told you about my new plan for cemetery research in this post about my idea of each cemetery having its own folder. This is something I developed for the course I am teaching for Family Tree University. It always helps to tighten up your plan when you can finally figure out what works.

My husband is my "boneyard buddy" and so I thought he deserved to stand in front of his own ancestors instead of mine or many times, graves of complete strangers. So, here he is with Abraham and his wives. He looks pretty pleased, doesn't he?

So here's how I got here....

Is this like Paul Harvey? "...and now you know the rest of the story..." after a commercial break?

Before I started blogging (before 2006), I read a lot of articles about how blogging is different than regular publishing. One article was great. It said that the posts should be short because someday people will read 15 or 20 blog posts a day.

Now that people read many more than that, I think that was good advise. I try to write two or three at a time but with all I am doing it is hard.

We will revisit Abraham and Eleanor after I get the process I am using explained.
