Even though Memorial Day began as a holiday to honor those who died in military service, it has evolved into much more. Today, this federal holiday has become a general day of memory for those we’ve loved and lost. Therefore, many Americans will be visiting grave sites of relatives this Memorial Day weekend whether they served in the military or not.
Today, I will honor some of my maternal family members and ancestors virtually with the launch of the – Chapple Family Virtual Cemetery - at FindAGrave.com!

When I’m not watching, NBC’s “Who Do You Think You Are?” or PBS’s “Finding Your Roots” with Henry Louis Gates, Jr., I enjoy watching the local show Houston 8 that airs on Fridays at 8 PM. The May 4th program centered on the topic of genealogy and the guests were, Bennett Greenspan, President and CEO, Family Tree DNA, George Allen, Afro-American Historical & Genealogical Society, Houston, and Susan Kaufman, Clayton Library for Genealogical Research, Houston Public Library.
So check out the show; enjoy!
