Our Maplewood Cemetery event was very nice. The rain kindly waited until afternoon.
Visiting the cemetery of an ancestor is a privilege. Although none of us has any relations buried here, it was a great reminder to search a cemetery thoroughly. There might be other names you are interested in or even the name of someone whose signature is on a legal document associated with an ancestor.
Thanks, ladies, for coming out for the cemetery scavenger hunt!
NOTE: No interment at the cemetery tomorrow, so we will be there. Let’s hope for good weather, but we will be there with our umbrellas if it’s raining.
This month we are going on a scavenger hunt. We will be visiting Riverview Cemetery where we will scour the aisles looking for the answers to a set of clues we will provide for you. We suggest bringing a pencil and a clipboard to make the quest a little easier.
This event will take place at 10:00 AM on Saturday, May 11. We will gather near sections A & D, (near the flagpole) following the map below.
Whoever finds the most answers will receive a prize – a gift certificate from the National Institute for Genealogical Studies for a FREE course of your choice, provided by the Virginia Genealogical Society. Check out the website at www.genealogicalstudies.com to see the many courses offered. The value of the gift certificate is approximately $89.00.
There will be no CVGA meeting in April. Many of us will be attending the Virginia Genealogical Society Spring Conference in Richmond.
