I was recently contacted by a Seana Miracle.She asked me to forward information about this organization and website on to anyone I thought might be interested http://www.societyfortheunendowed.com.After looking at it I am very pleased to offer it for your pleasure.If you have any interest it grave decoration,preservation of cemetery's , and the rich cultural history of the Indigenous and Hispanic peoples of the American southwest I think you will enjoy the photos and information therein.I hope Seana becomes a Graveyard Rabbit as I feel this site belongs with the Rabbits.It is my personal belief,and I know it has been expressed by others,that some of the decline in respect for and involvement by the community in our cemetery's is linked to the "cookie cutter" commercialization of the modern American cemetery. In cemetery's were people are encouraged to honor the lives of their loved one's in personal ways, not just "mark" their deaths, people respect,care and remain involved in their cemetery's.Please make sure you check out the story of Horace MCafee in the East section of the website,Chilili, San Juan Nepomoceno Cemetery NM. it is good reading for anyone who cares about our cemetery's.
I am a 8th generation native of California.I have a lifelong interest in old photos,family history and story's,cemeteries,with a focus on my early California Spanish/Mexican ancestors.I hope my blogs can help me organize research,help others in their searches and memorialize those who are a forgotten chapter in California's history.
My mom's southern family are a part of this mix too!
