The Next Generation of Graveyard Rabbits

In conjuction with niece Julia's genealogy project for 4-H, we took a trip to the St. Joseph Catholic Cemetery last weekend. Here is Julia standing next to the tombstone of Charles Cross, the first Catholic Mayor of Sandusky. He served in the 1850's.

During the course of several hours, Julia learned about pedigree charts, family group sheets, and how she was named for her Hungarian great great grandmother Julia. We learned a lot, and we especially enjoyed looking through the family albums for
photos for her Treasure Chest to be on display at the fair!
