My apologies for my earlier post. There were issues with the slideshow, so I had to use a different format. No music on this one, but it should play properly.
The Hampton Roads Chapter of #AAHGS to a road trip to Somerset Place (Plantation), on Saturday, June 9th. Please enjoy this short blog post, which includes a slideshow of pictures from our visit. :)

Out and About with AAHGS - A Field Trip to Somerset Place!
Life's been a whirlwind, of late - pretty much one thing after another, with little room to breathe. But, that's life, right? I'm dropping in just to share a few photos (slideshow) from my Hampton Roads Chapter of AAHGS' field trip to Somerset Plantation, y...

Wow, how interesting (and powerful)! Reading that really struck home with me, because my dad was the same way, and I have his final wallet, too. He was just as meticulous about how he kept his (and he also had a card with all our numbers on it)! I'm definitely going to pull it out, one day soon, and go through the contents with "new eyes". It always makes me feel close to him to go through his wallet.

Thanks for sharing this. I hope you find out who's in the photos!

Renate

PS... Oh, that is such a CUTE picture of you with your dad. I love it!

#52Ancestors Week 17 #Cemetery
For this week's prompt, "Cemetery", I'm sharing two photos from the Elam's Chapel United Church of Christ Cemetery (which is actually located next to Roanoke Chapel Missionary Baptist Church) in Elams, Warren County, NC. The first photo shows a stone that greeted me the first time I ever visited this cemetery when I was just beginning to explore this line of my ancestry. I took it as a sign that they were welcoming me, with love.

Many of my ancestors from my mother's maternal side (mostly BROWN and ROSS) are buried in this cemetery, including my 2x ggf, Asa/Asy Brown. To learn more about my gg-grandfather, please click the link, below, to read a blog post I published in 2012. Thanks!
