Adventures in Ancestoring Ahead!

I'm getting ready and looking forward to tomorrow (or is it later today by now LOL?). A small local heritage group is hosting their fourth annual historic driving tour on Saturday. This year the tour will feature historic sites and buildings in and around the small rural village that my paternal grandmother's family line spent several generations living in and near. There are even some relatives still in the immediate vicinity today. I'm taking a camera and will report back here about any finds and items of interest I may learn.

I just now realized that the place where we will pick up our tickets and tour packet is only blocks from the cemetery where  a set of my gr-gr-gr-grandparents and a set of my gr-gr-gr-gr-grandparents (yep, that's four greats) are buried! I see a small detour from the official tour in my future.

  1. Hope you had a great tour. I'm looking forward to hearing about it and the rest of your genealogical adventures.

  2. I was able to get a photo of my 3x-gr-grandparents; stones. See blog post at for more about them.

    When I asked at the Heritage Center for directions to their grave spot in the cemetery, we were delighted to discover that the woman I asked was a 4th cousin, sharing these same 3x gr grandparents!
