Preparing for a Research Trip - I'm Back!

I returned last night from my research trip to Wabash County, Indiana and wow, did I accomplish a lot!

Myself, my mom and aunt took over 300 cemetery photos that now need to be uploaded to Find A Grave.  We also visited both the Wabash and North Manchester Libraries and did some research in their genealogy departments.  The most fun I had was knocking on a door, asking if they had an old cemetery on their property and then donning my hiking boots for a trek through the woods to visit a VERY old cemetery!  That was a great experience and I was able to find stones for a couple of my ancestors who died in the early 1800's!

I have so many stories to tell but first I need to organize all my findings and also my thoughts. 

It was a perfect Mother's Day weekend for me.  I hope all of you had the same!


  1. Can't wait to hear the stories!!!!!

  2. Welcome back. Glad you had a great trip; can't wait to hear all about it.

  3. Congrats on your success and your enthusiasm!! As I plan for my own summer trek, i look forward to hearing what you have to say.

  4. I love reading about research and cemetery trips. Even tho I don't have any people from Indiana, it will be fun to read about your trip, once you're organized. Lucky you.

  5. Welcome back. Glad to hear your trip was a success.
