Family History Friday

Over the years, Mom and I have trekked through multiple cemeteries searching for clues about our past. Now you can visit many cemeteries without leaving your home! The website is community run with photos and information posted by members around the country (and the world). You can search by name, county and even drill down and search within individual cemeteries. I am sending out a big thank you to all the volunteers who make this information available!

Through, I found my great great grandmother,

as well as her brother, Martin

and Martin's wife, Christine.

All three of them are buried in Warren, Pennsylvania, in the Oakland Cemetery, pictured here.

Update: 6/21/12 It's possible the grave marker for Annie Anderson is not our family member. I've ordered death certificates for the two Anna Andersons from Warren County, PA, who died in 1913 and 1916 and then we'll know for sure.
