It’s hard to believe a year has already passed since I started this blog. I have not published nearly as often as I had hoped to – “real life” tends to get in the way of research at times. But, despite the intermittent publishing schedule, this blog has brought me into contact with a handful of “new” cousins and allowed me to reconnect with some “old” ones. My hope is to post more consistently in the blog’s second year. We’ll see how well that works!
Some of the reason for the recent quiet was a family trip to England. There was not really any time for actual research while we were there, but I was able to briefly prowl around Fulham Cemetery in London where my great-great-great grandfather James Coulman is buried. The cemetery sustained some damage during the Second World War and there is no longer a tombstone for him, or his wife and daughter who are also buried there. It is still a beautiful site – even on a grey day.
And there is a memorial near the section where James is buried for those who fought and died in the war.
We also took time to visit my husband’s grandparents’ gravesites – it’s never too young to get the children interested in genealogy!
Thanks for reading!
