History from Cemeteries: Flint, Michigan (Patrick Mears, -Germany, 03/05/23 3:27 am)

I hope that you and Aldona are on the ground in Michigan and either in your home or are nearing it. It sounded from your email messages from Portugal that you both had a lovely time. In any event, welcome back to good old Michigan.

I came across this article yesterday--it is somewhat dated now but still relevant and interesting, at least as far as I am concerned. I just sent this U Michigan-Flint professor a very long email about what Eddie, Tricia and I have been doing on our family history for the last five years since Corona appeared. I received back an automated message that the professor is on sabbatical now and anticipates getting back to me in a few days. I look forward to his response.

Best wishes and safe landings all around.


JE comments: Thank you, Pat! We are safe and (mostly) sound after a long trek home. We arrived five hours behind schedule to mountains of "springtime" snow and (gulp, again) no electricity. But this time the outage was at our city house in Royal Oak. Here in the boondocks we do have power, in a reversal of the blackout of last week. 

Yes, there is an electrical grid crisis in America.

This article on cemeteries is fascinating, although the project described is from 2017.  In Portugal we visited two or three cemeteries.  The Portuguese follow the Latin custom of including ceramic photos on the tombs.  The practice really gives you a better way of "knowing" and honoring the departed.
