And inside every turning leaf Is the pattern of an older tree The shape of our future The shape of all our history. -Sting
Hi. I'm Colleen. I've been collecting pictures of my ancestors' headstones for almost ten years. I have been wanting a way to share them online for some time but wasn't inspired until I saw someone posting their pictures on a blog.
I acquired many of these obituaries from my grandmother. Many of them don't have documentation of which newspapers they were cut from, but she kept them paper-clipped with the funeral program of almost each family member.
