It is exciting to find genealogical materials of our ancestors on online databases and in books, but going to the locations where our ancestors lived connects us on a higher level. Cemetery treks can be traditional until the later generations begin to forget the older ancestors, but cemeteries are just one location that mattered in our ancestors’ lives. In this presentation, Eleanor Brinsko, of Carlon Genealogical Services, LLC, will lead a search in looking at our genealogical documentation to bring to life a road trip of a lifetime, making helpful contacts, and some tips on having a successful journey. It’s time to retrace the steps that our ancestors took!
