Tombstone Tuesday: Let This Be a Lesson to You

In the past 20 years, I've attended dozens of Laker games, Kings games, concerts and even a monster truck rally at the Fabulous Forum. Only within the last 12 months did I discover that my great-great grandmother is buried across the street from the arena.

This, folks, is why you should take the steps to learn your family's history.

[Notes for the family: me > dad > Buster > Gertrude > Marie Magdalena Schmitz Baerecke Hayward Sutherland.]


  1. This is pretty neat really, isn't it? Now she should get lots of 'visits'.

  2. What a terrific find! That is terrific!

  3. She's got a lot of names... no wonder you couldn't find her! ;-)

  4. I learned something very similar in the past weeks. Glad you found her!
