Memorial Day Weekend is here despite the cool weather reminding of us more of April instead of May. While it is an opportunity to enjoy an extra day away from work, we also pause to remember those who gave their lives for our freedom. As genealogists, we spend time walking cemeteries, searching for those elusive ancestors, remembering the past. Memorial Day is the opportunity to pause and thank those who went before whether you choose to visit a cemetery or attend a Memorial Day program. This is truly a day of remembrance.
Happy Memorial Day!
p.s. For those who choose to honor ancestors by searching for them, Fold3 is offering free access to their records from now until Tuesday in honor of Memorial Day.
