Very cool, Geoff, very cool indeed! Got goosebumps myself.

Great idea for a book, Geoff! I can hardly wait to read it!

Serendipity, yes!! One of several! My family did not remember where my grandfather was buried in 1943, only in old graveyard in Arlington, Texas, area. No mortuary or funeral home had info about him. That evening my husband I stopped at the large Old Pioneer Cemetery, were on opposite corners when he yelled it was time to go. I went running back across the center of the cemetery, stumbled and fell. My husband ran to see if I was OK and all I could do was say "This is what I was looking for!" My knee was resting on my grandfather's flat tombstone.

Eagerly awaiting your book.

Serendipity...yes indeed! Several yrs ago I drove to St.Louis to try to locate my gggrandparents graves. Since their deaths had been so long before, I attempted to drive to a very old cemetery in the general area as recalled by an uncle, but was blocked by street closings,,,causing me to take a circuitous route which brought mr to an intersection where I zsgould have made a left turn.
However, before I was able to turn I looked up and saw...directly ahead...the entrance to a beautiful cemetery... and thought...why not stop in since I'm here?? I, too, had goosebumps as the attendant read out the names of the entire family and told me the location of the family plot!!!!


I've often have the feeling as I do research that either my ancestors have been near me or that I'm experiencing what they felt when they were alive.
