My Introduction

Hello Everyone!

I am so excited to start a brand new blog that is connected with the brand new Association of Graveyard Rabbits.

I am honored to be a member of this brand new association founded by Terry Thornton. In general terms, this association is meant to promote the preservation of cemeteries, burial grounds, and grave markers. In this blog, I will also be trying to promote learning about the burial customs of your ancestors - especially those from the area of Eastern Tennessee.

So you're probably asking why I picked Eastern Tennessee. I mean, it is in the middle of the Appalacian Mountains (some of it is) and it isn't like the area is extensively famous for their cemeteries, right? Well - yes...but I picked this area because I have a lot of ancestors from this area. Plus, this area is where I fell deeply in love with genealogy... It is where the monster was born.

So I offer many thanks to Terry Thornton for starting this group and to footnoteMaven for designing the wonderful badge for this group.
