Some version of my family have been visiting this cemetery for a very long time.
.
Mount Emblem Cemetery located in Elmhurst, Illinois.
.
It’s kind of eerie saying this but almost everyone in this photo is now buried in the family plot.
.
For the longest time the McAuley family came to Mount Emblem to visit the gravesite of their mom/wife buried here in 1927.
.
Then they came to visit their father and mother when he joined her twenty years later.
.
Then a brother.
.
Then my father. A son. Death out of order.
.
Then a sister.
.
Then my grandparents.
.
Finally a sister in law. All laid to rest together. Eternally.
.
On Memorial Day my family and I visited this plot of land yet again. We said our prayers. We remembered.
.
Those we knew and those gone too soon. Those we never knew.
.
We never stay there long. As we were driving away I noticed a couple carrying a lawn trimmer and blower over to a gravesite.
.
It gave me pause.
.
Whose gravesite are they so carefully and meticulously cleaning? Is it a parent? A child? A friend? I will never know. Through the show of their efforts I could already tell that that person was loved.
.
Each person buried at this cemetery and all cemeteries has a story. They lived. They loved. They left others behind.
.
Others to remember. Others to make sure those that come after remember as well.

That is why I visit cemeteries. Why do you? When is the last time you went to one?

Every family has struggles.  Families in the bible struggled too.  No one gets to escape the healing that their families need to bring them closer to Christ. Listen to the podcast and learn more.⁠

The U.S. Census can tell you a lot about your family. From where they lived to their highest level of education, there is a lot you can learn. Thankfully, almost everyone is documented in a U.S. Census, so you are sure to find your ancestors in at least one if not more! Stay tuned as I will be breaking down what information you can find in each Census. 🍃 #Ancestry #familytraits #tips #geneology

Took Grandpa out to visit our ancestors yesterday.  It was awesome having my girls listen to the stories and learn about our family history.

Renovated 3-bed cottage nestled between rolling hills on 5 acres of land.😍 Eye catching finish to the outside. Inside is nicely finished and ready to move into, with the opportunity to finish further to your preference.

Private location, approximately 15 minutes drive from Westport town. 
The land isn't great, so only useful if someone wanted to go sheep farming or for keeping 1 or 2 "pets". €169,000 asking price 
Derryaun lodge, Derryaun, Letterbrook, Westport, Co. Mayo.

As always, not the selling agent but you can visit the original listing by clicking the link in our bio.

I will be presenting a webinar abut 'The Psychology of Searching' which will ask 'why have you compiled a family tree?' on 29 May, via Zoom. It is hosted by Dan Earl of Vivid-Pix 👌🏽This session will look at psychological explanations of kinship, tribalism, duty, responsibilities, nostalgia, homelands, voids, and the need to devise a narrative. DNA testing provides instant relatedness, but what is the true connection to many strangers? How we see ancestors leads to a sense of self, which can influence how others see us, and can help us feel grounded. It may not be ‘Who am I? but ‘Who did I come from?’ Hope you can join Dan and I :) Please register here: https://zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_714hbFj4RDqbLsHqQjlW-Q #psychology #webinar #searching #genealogy #geneology #familytree #zoom #zoommeeting #zoomlife #dna #tribes #29may #family #doctor #phd #ancestry

Corradooa, Bailieborough, Co. Cavan. €75,000. This 3 bed farmhouse is a dream find! Sitting on 0.89 acres it has 3 bedrooms in the main house and also a two storey outbuilding attached to the back that could be very sympathetically incorporated into the living space of the main house if needed. I’ve uploaded 10 pics with this post but there are a whopping 23 on the listing. Kudos @dngodwyer for really showing buyers what this place has to offer & for having an IG account so we can tag you! As always, i’m not the selling agent for todays property, so if you want to see the full original listing, head on up to my bio and click on the link. #cavan #reno #ireland_gram #irelandinspires #irishlandscape #irelandaily #ireland #thisisireland #ireland_gram #visitireland #irishcottage #expat #irishproperty #geneology #irishrealty #irishrealestate #cheapirishhouses #under100k #cottage #cottagelife #irishcentral #irishamerican #retiretoireland

Yes looking into family history has been interesting and enlightening etc but I’m mostly just tripped out by how EVERYONE LOOKS THE SAME 5 generations on v spooky-main photo is of the Aldridge family, taken in 1898 at Bushside, Canterbury. The man in the back, Arthur Wheeler Aldridge, is my great great grandfather- the boy on the far right is my great grandfather, Ernest Aldridge. Bottom from left: Great uncle jimmy, young Ernest, older Ernest, dad, some loser #geneology #staveleymuseum #canterbury #timetravellers #earlynz

Dear EVERYONE, Please add names, dates, locations and any other information you know to any photos you print or find. Future generations of your family will thank you! Some have only first names, others locations and still others only a date. Most have nothing at all. This is gonna take awhile.

Sadly  William and wife's Ann's head stone is not in great condition.
A distant retaltive has reached out to have this fixed/replaced. But sadly it will be around $3500.
Although almost half this has been pulled together, we are reaching out for any donations.
.
William and Ann have a private Cemetry, so upkeep has not been as well managed with family moving from this area.
.
Any donations can be made to Anne Siggs Headstone Restoration Fund BSB 633000 A/c No 162383459

Today, I was clearing out some old boxes at my parents house and came upon a very detailed and thorough genealogy booklet along with a small photo album. The booklet took almost 6 years to complete by my Dad, his brother, several professional agencies, and amongst other family members. I was told it was supposed to be given to me as a gift for being selected to represent the Amateur USA Basketball Team/tournament being held in Italy during the summer of 2002. Somehow, it never made it to me until now. This will be a great reminder that families grow like branches on a tree in different directions, yet our roots remain as one.
