Buried by the Church

A typical setting in days gone by in the East.  A life lived in the town where you grew up.  The church attended throughout your life and then your death.  The church was never far from your daily pattern and in death you are buried in its yard.  The pattern Is repeated throughout the generations.  Life, church, death – intertwined.

About lineagekeeper

Family history research is a favored avenue of relaxation. It is a Sherlock-like activity that can continue almost anywhere at any time. By leveraging a lifetime involvement in technology, my research efforts have resulted in terabytes of ancestral data, earning me the moniker of Lineagekeeper. And yes - We are all related to Royalty.
