Happy Summer!
 
Warm weather and sunshine are a great combination for spending time with your family.  Don't forget to keep a camera with you to capture the moments that enrich your genealogy.  Share some of your research stories and you may pick up new clues along the way.
 
 
Memorial Day weekend typically kicksoff the start of summer.  
It is a day of remembering the men and women who died
while serving in the United States Armed Forces.  
 
When visiting cemeteries and graves this Decoration Day, bring your camera and take some photos.  When you get home, create and share an everlasting online memorial to a site like Find A Grave.  Along with the cemetery and headstone photos, add facts from your family history, perhaps an obituary, or their military service & awards, their parents, siblings, childern and other family members.
 
Make this a new project or add it as a step for documenting and sharing your ancestors life.
