As a life-long genealogist, it is difficult to impossible to simply drive or walk by a cemetery without entering for a walking or driving tour.
Many of my favorite memories of visits to large cities involve the scenes, smells and quiet that I enjoyed in her cemeteries. How could anyone ignore these oasis of calm amid the hubbub?
I don’t know who took this photo of the Calvary Cemetery in New York, but it represents the feelings I’m trying to express.
Do yourself a favor this spring. Visit a cemetery just for the calming ambiance and the stories of lives and places represented on the headstones.
