The Halvangis Family at Evergreen Cemetery in Detroit, MI.

I am halfway through the #52Ancestors genealogy blogging challenge for 2018 and I am taking a break for this week.

Sort of!

Earlier this week I took a trip to Evergreen Cemetery in Detroit, MI. Several of my Halvangis ancestors are buried there. I've written about some of them previously.

This week I wanted to share some videos from my recent visit and document the gravesites of my family.

Enjoy!


Here is the gravesite of my great grandfather, Vasilios Halvangis (1891-1937). To read some more about him you can check out:

Vasilios had a brother, Gust Halvangis (1886-1928). I had recently confirmed that he was also buried at Evergreen though no stone was every purchased for him. On this trip I found exactly where he was buried and started the process of getting him a proper marker. You can read more about him here:

Here is a detailed map of section E, where Gust is buried (section E, range 4, grave 73)

Vasilios's wife (my great grandmother) is also buried at Evergreen, though in a different section (15). Maria Chardoulias Halvangis (1895-1951) is buried next to her granddaughter, Sophie Marie Mitchell (1950-1972). Sophie would be my mother's first cousin. I wrote about my great grandmother here:
