I am halfway through the #52Ancestors genealogy blogging challenge for 2018 and I am taking a break for this week.
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.
Here is the gravesite of my great grandfather, Vasilios Halvangis (1891-1937). To read some more about him you can check out:
Here is a detailed map of of section F. Vasilios is buried in section F, range 9, grave 12.
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:
Here is a detailed map of section 15 where Maria is buried (section 15, lot 239A, grave5).
This is the 26th of 52 weekly posts planned for 2018. It was inspired by the #52Ancestors writing challenge issued by professional genealogist, Amy Crow Johnson. The challenge: once a week, for all 52 weeks of the year, write about a relative in your family tree.
