During my genealogy research I’ve visited many cemeteries along the way and have taken pictures of at least one hundred headstones. While I am looking for lost family members or volunteering to do it for someone else, I sometimes take photos of the cemetery itself. I’ve always found cemeteries both fascinating and calming. They’re like a park full of local history and some of them were originally built that way. There is a certain beauty to the melding of the stones and nature, especially if you visit during certain times of the year like fall or spring. Here are ten of the favorite cemetery photos that I have taken over the years.

I started genealogy research about mid-1999. My grandfather had passed away in April of that year. Since then Iâ€™ve done a lot of research not only for myself, but for friends and other relatives. In 2006, I married the love of my life, Darcy, and welcomed the birth of our daughter, Aerissa Jean, in 2010 and our son, Xander Lee, in 2012. I canâ€™t wait to tell them stories about all of their ancestors.
