What was I doing, taking photos of plots of grass, leaves and weeds?
Well, while these photos may not look much to some people, they mean a lot to me and my family. They are the plots where some of my ancestors ended up, after long and sometimes short lives on this earth. The lack of a headstone, although disappointing for the genealogist in 2013, doesn't diminish the value of their lives. For this reason, I still want to remember them and mark the spot where they were laid to rest, although it doesn't look that interesting.
Yesterday, we visited about ten or so graves, most of them without headstones.
So, for the record, here are a couple of the gravestones and gravesites we found on our visit to Rookwood cemetery yesterday.
