Saying Goodbye and Taking It On the Road

My maternal grandmother passed away on October 4, 2014. I flew to Denver and traveled on to Kansas for funeral services and burial in her hometown.

The day after the service, I took off on a 7-day family history road trip with my mother and aunt. Together, we traveled across five states, logged nearly 2,200 miles, and paid our respects at the graves for 36 direct ancestors.

In the coming days I will log here the journey of genealogical discoveries and family healing.


  1. Condolences to you and your family on the passing of your grandmother.

  2. Thank you for your condolences, Jana. I appreciate it.

  3. I'm so sorry for your loss. Your grandmother looks like she was a strong lady.

  4. Thank you, Nancy. She was strong. I appreciate your kind words.
