If there's one thing I like it's a cemetery, another thing I enjoy is responding to Geneameme challenges from fellow family historians.
In recent weeks I have been a bit snowed under with various geneactivities and I haven't attended to one item on my "To Do" list, that is to respond to Carmel Galvin's Concerning Cemeteries Geneameme. My calendar for this week is reasonably clear so first task on my ticket is to think about cemeteries.
It's never too late to respond to a geneameme so, please, join in. Carmel said:
