In Virginia, protests arise as a forlorn cemetery is dug up to make way for high school football - The Washington Post

In Virginia, protests arise as a forlorn cemetery is dug up to make way for high school football - The Washington Post

I've heard that football is King in the South; is this story an example of that?  Dick Eastman's Blog caught my interest this morning and so I went on to read the original story.  Why was my interest piqued?

Not long ago,  I uncovered in my ancestral search, many surnames that go back to Virginia roots.  I had thought that all the graves in all the cemteries were mostly mapped, located, and identified.  I think that I don't think; I'm living in a type of genealogy Disney World, in the magic kingdom, but I don't have to stay there.

Read, people, read.  Learn, discover, explores, and question.  We have (I have) to learn to use my 'noggin; in family history, in life!

Site Map for FamilySearch — FamilySearch.org

Site Map for FamilySearch — FamilySearch.org

Bravo, Ancestry Insider, for keeping me in the know!

Finally, at the bottom of every page (in tiny print, but nevertheless "there"), a way to find what you need and what you want at FamilySearch, in terms of navigating the site.  I had previously been using Google Search and been very happy with the results from there in getting to where I wanted to go in FamilySearch!  Is the site map complete?  Does it have everything in it you need to know?  I suggest saying "thank you", "good job", and then if you have suggestions, use the FeedBack "knob" or otherwise contact FamilySearch!
