Halloween tour of Lindenwood Cemetery

This morning I had the pleasure of going on a tour of Lindenwood Cemetery here in Fort Wayne, Indiana. Jim Cox led the tour. Jim goes around the area making transcriptions of cemeteries and is currently working with others to photograph every tombstone in Lindenwood. It was a great tour and a wonderful way to end ACPL's Family History Month activities.

Here are a few highlights from the morning:

Follow Friday - Good to Know

My recommendation for this week's Follow Friday is Heather H. Doherty's Good to Know: A Genealogist's Guide. Heather's blog gives genealogists a look into other fields of study and sees how knowing them can help you find your family.

Heather has only 4 posts are her blog so far but they are all packed full of information. I love how she encourages genealogists to think differently about their research.
Part I - Historical Events
Part II - Terminology & Abbreviations
Part III - Sociology and Behavorism
Part IV - Get to Know Another Occupation
