Bonanza Days at the cemetery!

Thursday, April 04, 2013

Yesterday I found every gravestone I was looking for to photograph. I hiked a lot! Lindenwood Cemetery in Fort Wayne is very old and there is probably not one stretch of level ground. My husband and I hiked all over Section K which is a nice tall hill to find our last assigned gravestone for the day.

I really enjoy the exercise and being in the fresh air (despite my allergies). I have finally found exercise that I enjoy!

    Great exercise and I for one like to thank all of you who go out to take pics of the graves.
    It has not only helped me with my genealogy but has made my grandmother happy that someone cares enough to do that. (Granny is 95)

    You work at a very large cemetery! Glad you are able to help the genealogists by getting photographs for them! - and get your exercise at the same time!

    People just flip out when I tell them that I hate exercise and don't see the point to it. However, I am being brutally honest. But, by photographing these gravestones for genealogists (that's one of my hobbies, too), I feel like I am accomplishing something measurable each day I hike the cemetery and I find myself excited about going each day.

    The cemetery I work in, Lindenwood Cemetery, has over 52, 000 internments, so I think I will be able to use Lindenwood as my exercise for a long time!

    Glad to hear you got your exercise in and doing it in a way that you enjoyed. I always liked old cemeteries but not my hubby. So don't do things that like that sigh.....lol.
