Welcome!

Welcome!
I realized quickly that I’d have to “think outside the box” to learn about my ancestors. I LOVE to interview people, and listen to stories about "the older days" when life seemed a little slower and simpler. I study USGS maps, plats, read chanceries, look for long forgotten cemeteries and try to help preserve memories people share with me. This blog is ad free, so it's easier to focus on sharing stories. Feel free to sign the guestbook, or join the FaceBook group. Even if we aren't related by DNA, I'd still love to hear about your research efforts and family stories. I am interested in posting (to this blog) stories relevant to the Mecklenburg-Brunswick families.

Point Lookout Confederate Cemetery: all names listed on monument and in book

This post concludes the pictures I took at Point Lookout, Maryland during Mar 2014. See the posts on Mar 16th and Mar 30th, for more info about the cemetery.

I went all the way around the monument. Then photographed the book at the monument. I made sure every row was represented, so the pictures overlap. They are in alphabetical order. If you wish for a picture, tell me which one and I'd be happy to send it to you. I figured not everyone lives very close to Point Lookout so I'd take pictures to share with those who couldn't travel to be there. Below are my pictures done in slide show format. I posted the slide show on you-tube, then imbedded it in my post for higher resolution. You can pause the slide show to view the images better. I took high resolution pictures (abt 17MB each). You can zoom in a lot, on individual pictures, that aren't in the slide show. You can also see quite well on the 7MB JPEGS I took.

My husband found this site. I can tell a lot  of work went into this site! It's searchable by name and has a lot of great information about Point Lookout Cemetery. http://www.plpow.com/POWDead.htm
