Graveyard Rabbit Carnival - November 2010


The topic for the November 2010 edition of the Graveyard Rabbits Carnival is: Genealogy On The Tombstone.

This topic was submitted by Diane Wright, who authors three GYR blogs: The Kansas Rabbit, The Wright Graveyard Stew, and The Grave Yard Rabbit Travels Wright. Does the tombstone tell a family history? Have we found some genealogy clues embedded in stone? Is there a brick wall breaker located in the cemetery? Show us the genealogy. We are all interested, so share with all the rabbits!

Dorene Paul presents Graveyard Rabbit of Sandusky Bay: Terry Family Monument at McPherson Cemetery posted at Graveyard Rabbit of Sandusky Bay, saying, "A quick walk through Clyde's McPherson Cemetery will inform you of a great deal of family history relating to the Terry Family."

Stachia presents Graveyard Rabbits Carnival: Genealogy on the Tombstone posted at Wandering Shades, saying, "Even a tombstone can be genealogical paydirt! Take, for example, the Willis family. This one tombstone gives us information on eleven people as well as clues for further research."

Carol presents Tell Me About Yourself, Clues Inscribed In Stone posted at Reflections From the Fence, saying, "I highlighted three stones/memorials from my data base in my post, showing some clues inscribed in stone. In the process I got a bit of a genie gift, names in full, where before I only knew surnames. Clues for sure."

That concludes this edition! Thank you to all the contributors. Submit your blog article to the next edition of the Graveyard Rabbit Carnival using our carnival submission form. Past posts and future hosts can be found on our blog carnival index page.

And while you're here, take a look at past carnivals, there's so much interesting information to be found when you explore cemeteries with a Graveyard Rabbit:

Thanks for suggesting this topic, Diane, and thanks for hosting the Carnival, Footnote Maven! I only wish there had been more participants! I totally enjoyed reading about family history that is written in stone, literally!
