Today the prep continues for the May research trip to Pennsylvania. More digging, more adding to the to do lists for each county & repository. I think today's prep will focus on headstone photographs.
A few years back (2007) we went into the same area's we are going this year. We were with friends and it was more of a "sorta" research trip - more a "hanging out" trip. We did visit quite a few cemeteries & we found lots of stones with the surnames of interest. But we didn't really do any serious research.
With the visiting of two historical societies & a few local libraries this will be more of a research than a "hanging out" trip. So today I will be reviewing the headstone files to see what if any headstones I missed, or if I missed any cemeteries that I wanted to locate & photograph.
The photo above is of Bowmansville Mennonite Cemetery, Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. Just a wonderful little cemetery nestled in amongst the Mennonite farms of Lancaster County. I photographed many stones in this peaceful place and going back thru them is something I need to do before we return to Lancaster County.
And so the prep work goes on...
